The wobbly wardrobe, chest of drawers that never close.

You wouldn't see it if it wasn't for the holes.
Now that we're movin', now that we're improvin',
Let's just wash our hands of this lot.
For it's no longer fitting for me to be sitting
On a sofa, I know for a fact was knocked off.
We might get a car, be all 'lardie dah,'
An' go drivin' out to the sands.
At the weekend, a gentleman friend
Might take me dancing to the local bands.
We'll have a front room, and then if it should happen,
That his Holiness flies in from Rome;
He can sit there with me, eating toast, drinking tea
In the sort of surroundings that remind him of home.
Oh, bright new day etc...
