SECOND LETTER HOME
(Andrew Lloyd Webber (m) Don Black (l) )
as recorded by Marti Webb
with the London Philharmonic Orchestra
Mom, I know you'll think I'm potty, but at last I think I've found him!
He's young but he's mature and you will love him, I can tell!
He says one day we'll marry and I don't think I should rush him,
But if he gets his skates on we can have some kids as well!
There are lots of things I miss, mom, no-one makes a normal sandwich,
You need Goliath's mouth to eat the ones New Yorkers buy!
I long to find a drink that hasn't got an ice cube in it,
And for an English sausage I swear I would gladly die!
Anyway, as I was saying, he can't sit still a minute,
He's not like Neville Braithwaite, this one likes to dance all night!
He does a lot of travelling and when he goes I miss him,
For once I think it's safe to say I'm doing something right!
