Growing Pains

By 6th August 2011December 9th, 2019No Comments

I used to wear a blazer
With a badge sewn on the pocket
To show the school I went to;
A white shirt and a school tie,
A pullover to keep me warm,
Black shoes, grey trousers and a cap,
Completing my school uniform;
A tidy little chap.
But when I was a teenager
I bought a pair of baseball boots
And then a pair of jeans,
A tee shirt with a logo
And I’d wear these at weekends
When I was full of beans.
I’d be a rebel, cause some trouble,
Chat up girls and play loud music.
I would smoke and lounge about,
Sophisticated, cool ……….
And when it came to Monday
I’d get dressed again for school.
