you were in my dreams last night

you were in my dreams last night

you were a sad sack city gorilla / leaping pillar to pillar
a hairy tormentor / swearing, tearing up the shopping centre
and me? I was the hapless, hatless alligator / tumbling backwards down the escalator
straight into a screaming waiter / who said he’d get my drinks order later

you were in my dreams last night

you were a crazy aunt / trying to brain me with a potted plant
buffed and bouffant / totally trenchant, brutally unrepentant
and me? I was the toad on your toilet seat / a lascivious, amphibious meet n’greet
with an eye for surprise and a taste for meat / a schlubby old tub with webby feet

you were in my dreams last night

you were a striking, holiday Viking / horns in, thumbs out, hitchhiking
curling your plaits, looking inviting / but the traffic wasn’t biting
and me? I was half man, half midwife / wading through a midlife crisis
losing my shit with laryngitis / outside of the party ‘cos you wouldn’t invite us

you were in my dreams last night

you were a robot mother in disguise / spanners for hands and cans for eyes
who fed me nails and said they were fries / and raced away for more supplies
and me? I was the blinking lighthouse kid / foghorning all the dumb things I did
planning a takeover bid / hitting the skids / dragged off screaming by a giant squid

yeah?

okay

so – what does THAT all mean?
