SqueezeRose I Said

(difford/tilbrook) Yes I cried the moment that her hand slapped my face A mouth full of sandwich went all over the place She left like a tornado the door of course slammed I stood in the kitchen a very confused man The thump thump of her foot steps went right up the stairs The cat ran for cover to the living room chairs But what was the problem what on earth could be wrong To deserve a slapped face it all seemed far too strong Rose I said, heaven knows what we've done Rose I said, water flows under the bridge Rose I said, heaven knows is this love Rose I said, curtains close back to read the script Up to the bedside where she lay in tears The drawers were left half open, her clothes laying near A suitcase tipped sideways at the end of the room I swallowed my sandwich and picked up her boots She turned just like an actress, a glare came my way I said what's the matter, what have I done today She spat out the name of the girl across the road I'll never forget the way she flared her nose Rose was the girl who some days I'd drive to work She worked in the office as an articled clerk Sometimes we had lunch in the pub along the street There was nothing between us, just good company I admit that I liked her but that's all it was I stood at the bedside in a state of shock She heard it different from a friend she met today Who says she saw us kissing down an alleyway I felt like two people a jekyll and a hyde I'd really made my bed to lay in this time I picked with my tongue at the bread stuck in my teeth There through the window, her house on the street I knew I was guilty, I told myself to lie It seemed to make no difference, on the bed she cried I left with my head bowed I felt the curtain drop Rose stood in the wings looking pretty in a frock
