Rebel Without A Vest

 

MOTHER SAYS IT’S COLD TODAY
SO WRAP UP WELL AND DON’T DELAY
KEEP HANDS IN GLOVES AND SCARF WOUND TIGHT
AND BE HOME BY EIGHT TONIGHT

HIS HAIR IS CUT WHEN SHE DECIDES
IT’S GROWING TOO LONG AT THE SIDES
HIS SHOES ARE POLISHED TILL THEY GLEAM
AND TROUSERS IRONED ON THE SEAM

HE HAS A SECRET THAT HE KEEPS
HE DREAMS ABOUT IT AS HE SLEEPS
SHE DOESN’T KNOW, SHE’S NEVER GUESSED
HE DOESN’T EVER WEAR HIS VEST
X2

HIS LAST BIRTHDAY WAS A TREAT
MOTHER FED HIM ON RED MEAT
SHE GAVE ANOTHER PAIR OF SOCKS
LET HIM STAY UP TILL TEN O’CLOCK

THE TV SET IS HARDLY ON
SHE THINKS IT WILL CORRUPT HER SON
EXCEPT FOR ‘SONGS OF PRAISE’ OF COURSE
HE SINGS ALONG TILL HE IS HOARSE

HE HAS A SECRET THAT HE KEEPS
HE DREAMS ABOUT IT AS HE SLEEPS
SHE DOESN’T KNOW, SHE’S NEVER GUESSED
HE DOES’NT EVER WEAR HIS VEST
X2
