Two Fat Lovers

The 2 fat lovers are smoking in silence
They stand apart they gaze into the distance
They could be young but most probably older
They could be looking over your shoulder

They work together here in this building
And they’re not going anywhere
And if they’re happy they don’t ever show it
No gym club membership no weight watchers and no keep fit
For the 2 fat lovers…

He reads a magazine and she reads the echo
They look not unlike a biblical tableau
Will they get married and live close by?
Will they have babies grow old and die?

They work together here in this building
And they have nothing to declare
And if they’re happy they don’t ever show it
No gym club membership no weight watchers and no keep fit
Not the 2 fat lovers

Always seen together
Everyday lasts forever
Through all incumbent weather
And they look into each others eyes but not very deeply

They’re going home to bacon and eggs
They can’t buy their clothes off the pegs
And as the years pass them by they’ll get a nasty friction burn to the thigh
The 2 fat lovers…
