A certain man in a certain jacket He was here again last night I thought perhaps you might like to know There was no-one with him The glamorous brunette? He came here to forget her - Well, that's my theory Cos he drank us out of whisky Then we put him in a taxi And sent him on his way A certain man in a certain jacket He was pouring out his heart To Jenny at the bar But when I asked her, she refused to tell me A single thing he'd said Cos it was confidential And so I'm sorry I didn't catch the story But you might yet get lucky If he's in again tonight I suggest you take it slowly He will probably need some time But who knows what might then happen Further down the line? A certain man in a certain jacket Has probably woken up Feeling a little rough You'd better hope he has not decided That it's time to kick the booze And never show his face round here again

We were buried, early morning, by seven feet of snow All the aeroplanes were grounded, and all the roads were closed There was nothing left to do but to stay at home Then your hand was on my shoulder, to stir me from a dream Your flight was scheduled for departure, with no snow to be seen I am running out of chances to keep you with me How long 'til you're home this time? And would it be the end of the world Would it be the end of the world Would it be the end of the world if you didn't take your flight? Condensation on the window, I can see your breath This isn't comfortable and yet enjoying what is left Is all that I can do now you're packed and dressed So I should drive you to the station to put you on a train And I should stand there as you walk away from me again Forgive me if I'd hoped we'd done the last of this What is it that you have to do? And would it be the end of the world Would it be the end of the world Would it be the end of the world if you didn't take your flight?

It's dark, it's cold, I've had a long day and I'm not feeling up to it I'm broke, yeah, and that's not a place I could ever afford to frequent I know it's a pattern And it isn't the first time But I won't be joining you all out tonight Still I've kind of not got past what happened at New Year But I would rather not make a big scene with everyone there I know that it's stupid And I ought to draw a line But I won't be joining you all out tonight And besides I should really be drinking a bit less It's no good for my health And I have this book that I'm reading - it's too good to put it down And with all my other reasons for not coming into town I might as well read that Don't worry I'll be fine I won't be joining you all out tonight

Moon balloon Helium-filled, tied by a string Moon balloon Saviour of man, soother of toddler Moon balloon Shiny and round, somewhat extortionate Moon balloon You got what you wanted, you got what you wanted? Moon balloon Bribery device, outcome not guaranteed Moon balloon You turned down the sun, it's too late to grizzle now Moon balloon Take it or leave it: there's no alternative Moon balloon You got what you wanted, you got what you wanted
