Suwon City Revisited

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Gaizka Mendieta,
Outside his home in Spain,
Was writing a long letter
To his sweetheart, Elaine.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 At the time, Shay Given,
In Spain on holidays,
In a hired car was driven
By Claude, a friend of Shay’s.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Now Claude and Shay were driving
Around and round and round,
No nearer to arriving,
Destination still unfound.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 They stopped chez Mendieta,
The window open wide,
And hailed the blond goal-getter,
Sitting there outside.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Mendieta listened,
Looked long and hard at Shay,
Then with a smile that glistened,
He sent him the wrong way.
