Have you ever
Ever put a wrapper in your mouth and thrown the *sweet in the bin?
Or awoken abruptly, not sure which day you’re in?
Tried to call out a name but shouted someone else’s instead?
Or tried to get through a day out o’ the wrong side of the bed?
Have you ever day dreamed and lost an hour or so?
Gone past a speed camera and forgot to go slow?
Walked into a toilet, meaning the other gender instead,
To walk straight back out with a face beaming red?
Waved at a stranger but it’s not who you thought
Then crossed the road in a bid to abort?
Or walked down the street heading the wrong way
Then gone around the houses than turn ‘round straight away?
Or put on odd socks so when you cross your legs
Where one is blue and one black at the end of your pegs?
Got letters of words the wrong way around, hence
When they came from on your lips they midn’t dake sense?
Walked into a glass panel you just didn’t see
And everyone thinking ‘yeah that could have been me!’
Struggled with a door that refuses to budge,
When you were pulling not pushing, it just needed a nudge?
‘Have you ever’ is a phrase we all recognise
Hence the above will not come as a total surprise!
*sweet in the UK is same as candy.
