If Only…..

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 If only I’d got to the shop one hour later,
If only I’d used the correct escalator,
If only I’d spotted that huge alligator,
If only, if only, if only.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 If only old Adolf had been a Hispanic,
Or sailed to America on the Titanic,
Or worked all his life as a motor mechanic,
If only, if only, if only.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 If only our marking had been watertight,
If only our Packie had punched it that night,
If only Schillachi had been on the right,
If only, if only, if only.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 If only my Dad had worked harder in life,
And taken a millionairess for a wife,
I wouldn’t have all of this trouble and strife,
If only, if only, if only.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 If only – two words so pathetically small
Can make a sane man bang his head off a wall,
But, if you look closely, they mean bugger all,
If only, if only, if only.
