The Lyrics

A 'charver' is a layabout or good-for-nothing. Romford is a town in the English county of Essex. This parody was inspired by a headline I saw: "Are you Essex?" which I read as "Are you Essexperienced?"
There must be some way out of here
Said the plumber to his mate
I've had far too much lager
I'm in a right old state
My ex wife has got my car
My kids are on the steal
I'm risking regurgitation
Of my last Happy Meal.

No need to get excited,
Said the plumber's mate at last,
There are many people
Need a kick up the arse.
If you need a change of scenery
We could jump on a train
Go wreck some social machinery
Before we both go insane.

All along the Romford road
Drinkers kept the view
While the coppers came and went
Yobs and charvers too.
In the western distance
A Rottweiler did growl –
Out-of-towners approaching
And the wind began to howl.

I liked this, Chris (I live in Wandsworth, but know the Essex stereotypes well)....however, it feels a bit incomplete- there needed to be some kind of resolution at the end, or a knock-out funny line to finish it off. Nevertheless, a solid effort.
