The Retired Bloke

Mothers’ Ruin

It used to be mothers’ ruin

To drink a little drop of gin

Well today it’s the done thing 

Certainly a hit when our friend Lynn

Threw a party a success from the first min

Twenty types of tonic, fantastic,  a real win

Plenty of music, including classics from Jeff Lynne

Pulsating rhythms got right under the skin 

The laughter at the girls flossing, took it right on the chin

To express in words the fun we had I simply can’t begin

So remember some may say it may be a sin

But there’s nothing better than a whole lot of gin.
