This slightly adapted Pete Morton son ( I did ask!)

Another Verse

If the beginning was now, you’d have made the break,
But you managed to miss your chance, that was your big mistake,
And now you’re stuck here bursting for the loo,
When you heard those words “Child Ballad” it should have been your cue

But there’s another verse, there always is,
Tho’ you’re desperate for a leak we could still be here next week,
Another verse there always is, maybe the next one’s the last,
But hope is fading fast, yet another verse.

You hope it’s done , but there’s no such thing,
You’re in the grip of Musgrave, Lord Bateman or Tam Lin,
Squinting at their ipad, they bumble through the words
How you regret your mistake of not escaping while you could.

But there’s another verse, there always is,

You try crossing your legs, try to hold on
Imagine a parallel universe where the ballads are not long,
Now they’ve lost their place , as it staggers on;
There should be something like a driving test
To sing this sort of song.

But there’s another verse, there always is,

Though we like to show respect, pretend to be enthralled
We all know who will be to blame for that puddle on the floor
When you heard “Child Ballad” I imagined that
You’d be listening to Bob the Builder, Firemen Sam or Postman Pat

But there’s another verse, there always is,
But you won’t get to the loo as we’re not yet halfway through another verse.
.and on a minute wait, I’ve just seen the fire escape..
