Doctor You’ll Have to Take Me Word


You’ll Have to Take Me

Word For It Doctor


The Beatles played

me wedding.

They really did.

Before they were The Beatles

mind ya.

Just a pub band then.

Before Ringo

and all that druggy stuff.

Me husband couldn’t stand

the music.

They went on o’ course

though we didn’t.

If I’da known the future

I’da saved a picture.

Might be

worth something now.
