BEST SMELL IN THE WORLD

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Not fish and chips as a sea front lunchtime treat.
Not a rose that, by any other name, would still smell as sweet.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Not the smell of hops as you pass the brewery door.
Not the whiff of balti that leaves you wanting more.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Not the most delicate or expensive of perfumes.
Not the most fragrant of pot pourri in posh living rooms.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Not the freshness of the air, in the aftermath of rain.
Not the smell of a loved one, so imprinted on your brain.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 But the Saturday afternoon rush, the matchtime wee dram,
the intoxicating first inhale of freshly-purchased programme.
