I performed this song on television in a classroom set with a lot of dry ice. It had a beautiful arrangement by David Firman but when I saw it all I could think was, why did they let me tuck that shirt in. Some people look good tucked in; some donít. More dry ice would have been one solution.
The bus didnít come. It was dead rainy weather,
When it came it was full and we didnít stand together,
I love you so much, all my friends think Iím crazy.
I get told off at school cos I dream and Iím lazy.
You smiled at me once. Donít suppose you remember,
But I know when it was. Was the tenth of September,
Iíve got old souvenirs like your empty crisp packet,
And a blond curly hair from the back of your jacket.
If we went on a date I would just be in heaven.
Well, I know youíre sixteen but Iím tall for eleven.
Iím all muddled up when I think of you.
Iím not really sure what Iím meant to do.
My best friend Louise said, oh, write him a letter,
Cos it canít make things worse, and it might make them better,
It was all like in rhyme and I drew like a Snoopy,
And used all different pens. Did you think I was loopy?
I saw you today. Well, I just saw your blazer,
And Iím hurting inside like Iím cut with a razor,
I wrote that I loved you and I really meant it.
Now I feel really dumb. I should never have sent it.
Cos I think about you right from dawn until dusk. You
Havenít spoken to me. I just stand in your bus queue,
ÓVictoria Wood, 1986
