Donkey Talk   
    (Difford/Tilbrook)  
     
      Donkey talk  
      I can hear the donkey talk  
      Words chained out in a line  
      Loads of reason not much rhyme  
      Finger drumming beats behind  
      Donkey talk most of the time  

      The conversation peters out  
      So you stare down at your shoes  
      There's not much more to talk about  
      When the silence is confused  
      Then our eyes suddenly meet  
      And we choose to look away  
      That's just where we are today  

      There's no sense in hanging round  
      But we stand there all the same   
      You find a verb I pluck a noun  
      As the patience starts to strain  
      Then our words suddenly clash  
      As if there's so much to say  
      That's just where we are today  

      We used to stay up all night  
      With our eyes all bloodshot and wonky  
      We would hold each other tight  
      And talk the back legs off a donkey  
      But now I'm wearing its hat  
      We can't even laugh at that
