.6. Where Did We
Where did we walk when first we met?
We went for many a mile
Through Cities Towns and countryside
On pavements through fields over stile
Where did we rest when we tired?
I know we rest some on the way
A seat in the mall or bench in the park
Or in meadows where both of us lay
Where did we restore our lost vigour?
I know that we both joined a club
The prices were right on a club night
If not we just went down the pub
Where did we work when we married?
I know you worked in a small shop
My job was a guard in a brake van
I tried to make fast drivers stop
Where did we live with our young ones?
On a street they named after the Trent
It belonged to the old Borough Council
Where we paid nineteen shillings for rent
Where are we now we’re not working?
I know we would do it again
In a small bungalow with a garden
With our crumbling old bones full of pain
