Big Irma
with the padded bra
the load voice
and £4.10 stamped on her left shoe,
opens the door at ten past twelve
(a.m., p.m. - who cares ?)
wearing flimsy nightie over temperate flesh
A Lancashire lass with turned up nose
turned it up in canny Shields
Talk of the Jungle
Cheapest crumpet south of the Tweed
Guzzles down a pint of Newcastle Brown
in a minute flat
Never flat-broken
unless you ask
Don't up to the flat
it's cleaner than herself

Composed: Ackworth, 7th June 1971


1973 Breath of Fresh Air (UK)
