Mornington Crescent 2012

Take the tube to Mornington
Crescent, Camden Town
Charlie's Sun Orbit Amusements
turn you upside down

Amy Winehouse is on her own
star now, Orpheus' place
in the constellation of the
Lyre's sound embrace

This year won't be like a-
riding on the gloom tube
't will be run in a love train
’t won’t be spent in a blue mood
’t will be like a-speeding up again

On the 6th of June to come
Venus will in time
make her 2nd transit journey
'n make my verses rhyme

A transition through whatever the
crescent moon may tell
Yes, the crescent moon will tell us
if we're doing well

This year won't be like a-
riding on the gloom tube
't will be run in a love train
’t won’t be spent in a blue mood
’t will be like a-speeding up again

And December 21st
won't be The World's End (2)
Old Mother Red Cap says that
you'll survive, my friend!
