An Observer Am I
Here are some people I'd like you to meet,
Various characters who live down our street.
First there's old Alf, the gardener supreme
I've never seen a lawn so lush or so green.
Then there is Elsie, how she likes to chatter
Any subject you like, she'll have a natter.
There's secretive Steve, he peeps through his blinds
I often wonder what lurks in his mind.
Now on to Sarah, the voluptuous vamp
Quite a contradiction, for her husband's quite camp.
John on the corner is fixing his car,
He works on it daily, but it doesn't get far.
Old Margaret bless her, has a house full of cats
And a collection, of the world's weirdest hats.
Desmond the cyclist you just have to see,
All rigged out in lycra, he's seventy three!
Thomas our giant, six foot ten it's said
A rumour went round there was snow his head.
Then there is me, an observer am I
I just love to watch, as life passes by.
