Bromheads Jacket lyrics : "Poppy Bird"

He spied her on the tube
And she was wearing a bright red poppy
Her beauty it shone through the silence

As the commuters they tried not to make eye contact
He'd never seen such a beautiful thing
Except for in movies or up on billboards

He never seen such a beautiful thing in
All his years of travelling these trains


Her shiny brown hair was tucked behind her ears
And her big blue eyes pierced right through her glasses
The book she was reading was of an interesting nature

He knew that he would surely like to date her one day

A few more stops to Walthamstow

It's just a few more stops to Walthamstow
It's just a few more stops to Walthamstow
And poppy bird I wonder what your name is


He was a child of a difficult nature
It was compulsive disorder related

Sometimes he would do silly little things
Like turn the key in the door 5 times before he went to bed
In the past he got in some silly situations

With girls from school making some silly accusations
He was through all that and he knew what to do to not
Get himself into trouble


He wanted to walk past and just ask her her name
And say she's so pretty he's been watching her on the train

He was a child of a difficult nature
He was a child of a difficult nature


A few more stops to Walthamstow
It's just a few more stops to Walthamstow
It's just a few more stops to Walthamstow

And poppy bird I wonder what your name is

A few more stops to Walthamstow

It's just a few more stops to Walthamstow
It's just a few more stops to Walthamstow
And poppy bird I wonder if I'll ever meet you


He can't believe his luck coz he's in Walthamstow
And she's leaving the train or so

He follows her onto the platform
Up the stairs and through the barriers
He gets a bit too close and she looks behind

He takes control of himself and walks further behind
Now they're out and they're onto the street
And they walk past the top of his road


It sure is dark and yes it sure is cold
And so he plucks up the courage

And starts to make his approach
She can hear his footsteps
Her hearts in her throat

She turns starts to run

No don't be dumb

No don't be dumb
No don't be dumb
No please don't be dumb


He's so close now she waits to be grabbed
And she prays to god that she won't get stabbed

So close now she can feel his breath
And he grabs her on the arm and says
"Missus, this is your book that you left"
