'It Can't Work'                                    by Martin Day

Andy:       How will you sleep? How will you last?
Sam         With cosy bed and broadband fast.
Gary:       What if she hears you turn or move?
Sam:        She’ll think that next door’s in the groove.
Gary:       How can you know the coast is clear?
Sam:        I’ve made a peep hole never fear.
Andy:       You’ll never live in that small space
Sam:        I’ve got a bucket just in case.

Sam:                It can work. I’ve built it.
                        I live in the wall with a house-mate it seems.
                        My tenant, she’s gorgeous.
                        And I could become the man of her dreams.

Gary:       How can you win her, what’s your plan?
Sam:        I’ll be her guardian angel man.
Gary:       How can you think you‘ve got a chance?
Sam:        I’ll help her with her circumstance.
Andy:       Women don’t like deceit you’ll find.
Sam:        Really? I’ve heard that love is blind.
Andy:       When she finds out all Hell will blow.
Sam:        I don’t see she needs to know.

Andy & Gary:   It can’t work. It won’t work.
                        It will all end in tears if you skate on thin ice.
                        She’ll find out, there’s no doubt.
                        You will leave well alone if you take our advice.
