Fiver's Destiny - Part 1

There once was a man, brave and kind was he,

His head was in the clouds while the world was at his feet,

There once was a girl, strong and sweet and tough

They didn’t have much money, but what they had was enough


They went along to the car boot sale, to see what they could buy

And through the crap and clutter, something caught their eye

Excited crowds got in their way but a shining star did glow

A stall with toys for children was the only place to go!


They parted ways with the fiver, when they bought some baby shoes

Then a man called Bill came along, with a ten pound note to use

He said ‘got change for a tenner?’ and got more than he bargained for

When a fiver that we know and love, changes hands once more


He slid it in his pocket pressed up against his cheek

All lonely and forgotten, it remained there for a week

Thrown aside collecting dust, no longer clean

Until one day it ventured inside the washing machine


Oh the places it has been

Oh the things that fiver’s seen

From the car boot sale to the washing machine

That’s a fiver’s destiny


Bill found the note when he was buying a pint and he said ‘It’s my lucky day’

‘Cause he’d only left his wallet at home so was struggling to pay

The barmaid took the note, and said ‘Here’s your pint, Bill’

But the landlord wasn’t looking, so she stole it from the till


She lent it to her gran who spent it on some food

Then it was given as change to a weird old man, who was shopping for some lube,

He took it to a strip club, and in a hazy drunken whirl

It ended up in the G string of a nearly naked girl


Oh the places it has been

Oh the things that fiver’s seen

From the car boot sale to the washing machine

From the trousers of a drunk to the barmaids granny

From an old perv’s wallet to a stripper’s…

That’s a fiver’s destiny


She used it as a vessel to put powder up her nose

But when she heard a knock on the cubicle door, she froze

She flushed the away evidence, which wasn’t very clever

For now our story can’t go on as the Fiver was lost… FOREVER
