Ode to a Badger
Let me tell you about a place
Not far from Earls Court Station
A meeting point, a funky joint
For many a different nation.
See Liz and Ken stand at the door
With a warm and friendly welcome
And once they’ve booked those poor sods in
Then only God can help them.
Your first night may be scary
As you try to settle down
But look around, you’ll find your ground
Coz everyone’s a clown.
They’re all the same,
they play the game
I’m sure you’ll soon discover
So don’t complain when it gets insane
Just run and dive for cover.
I’ve been there when it’s quiet
And many times when it’s loud
I’ve been there Sunday mornings
When some folk are not so proud
And many good times you’ll have believe
When drinking you’ll be off it
Enjoy your stay, both night and day
And your mind is sure to profit.
I’ve seen some come and seen some go
And some have stayed for ages
I’ve witnessed mayhem at first hand
Through many stages
Of in the ins and outs, the pros and cons
The good times and the bad
And all the time there’s Liz and Ken
Your surrogate Mum and Dad.
