Who Wants Cilla

1.
I heard her whisper in my ear Won’t you step inside, my dear With half diminished words still left to say I may be getting over her today Who wants Cilla Who wants Cilla Who wants Cilla Etched into the runout groove “The only one for me is you” I never tire of your sobriquet And here’s a line I thought I’d never say Who wants Cilla Who wants Cilla Who wants Cilla I want to surround myself with Cilla She is stuck between my ears As semiquaver souvenirs All the other balladeers evaporate Who wants Cilla Who wants Cilla Who wants Cilla Maybe I do

Mrs. Greene 02:37
Mrs. Greene, Mrs. Greene Well she livens up an ordinary scene Takes their coats, and their hats When she gets them settled then it’s time for a nap Mrs. Greene Mrs. Greene Mrs. Greene Ahhh, have you seen Our heroine is rescuing a sultan from a swing She keeps it clean We’re so fortunate we found her while the sounds of love surround her, Mrs. Greene Mrs. Greene Mrs. Greene Mrs. Greene When she was young, was so much fun But you know a teacher’s work is never done And when the last bus has gone With a glass of Viognier out on the lawn Mrs. Greene Mrs. Greene Mrs. Greene Ahhh, have you seen The way she keeps on coping though she’s hoping change a scene She keeps it clean It’s so sweet to see her smiling while she finishes her filing, Mrs. Greene
