GUEST,Paranoid Android Farewell to the family piano (20) RE: Farewell to the Family Piano 13 Sep 05

When I was a child we were bordering on poor
But my father, the bricklayer always made sure
That despite the lack of luxury and even lack of space
The piano in the parlour always took up pride of place.
Now when I first bought my own home nearly forty years ago
I had wife and child, one table, and nothing else to show
I went shopping for some furniture with what little cash I had
But when I brought my purchase home I could see my wife was mad.
My buddy with the Hiace van dropped it in my garden
And when I played it in the driveway I could see my wife's looks harden.
I never had a lesson, I just learned from Jerry Lee
And I've played it almost every day to amuse no one but me
Now that old piano stands there in its rightful place of pride
While I play my daily workout on the Yamaha by its side

(All true).
