The first time I ever saw John Smith
He grinned and beamed and said "Hullo" to us:
We were sat on the stairs
Outside the room he was about to talk in.
Not knowing what to say, we said "Hullo"
Back to him.
"Do I go in there?"
And then we turned, and grinned at each other.
Because wed talked to him,
And he was going to be the Prime-Minister.
He seemed lovely
Quite rotund. Beaming.
It was October 1993.
Within a year
He was dead.
