Poem: Fanny by Gaslight

Fanny turn the gaslight up

And tell me what you see

Your vision has been clouded

Do you still remember me?

The lies and old malt whisky

Have poisoned all that’s good

Your captives have been clever

Don’t let us be misunderstood

 

Fanny turn the gaslight up

And cut the wick down low

Your memory has been twisted

And truth returns too slow

The lies and old malt whisky

Have poisoned all that’s good

Your captives have been clever

Don’t let us be misunderstood

 

Fanny turn the gaslight up

Now open the curtains wide

The horizon goes on forever

And I am on the other side

The lies and old malt whisky

Have poisoned all that’s good

Your captives have been clever

Don’t let us be misunderstood

 

Fanny turn the gaslight up

Pack your toothbrush and your comb

The train awaits on platform six

So make your way back home

The lies and old malt whisky

Have poisoned all that’s good

Your captives have been clever

Don’t let us be misunderstood
