Longest Day

I really tried


To be politically correct

I really, really tried 

Back in 1975

I was polite, I didn’t lie

I didn’t swear or curse

I said please and thank you

When talking to females

I stopped saying love or pet

I tried I really did

To be very correct

But then it all unraveled

When I got caught out –

By my wife

She told me I was faking

It was plain for all to see

Just relax you divvy

Just be yourself

Forget the rules

And so I’m now just me

I tried I really tried

To be so very nice

Looking back on reflection

It was the worst morning –

Of my life

NB.. Seriously I’m joking.
