Lifeskills

Jennifer’s mouth is getting tired
But if it’s love that she desires
These are the skills she will require

Late afternoon up at the park
Things kick off soon; it’s getting dark
Kevin McFarland’s got you marked
Behind the hedge down by the swings
That’s where they do all of those things
There’s more than one use for every part

You only met Clare two weeks ago
Said she would teach all you needed to know
About how to win and keep a boy’s heart
Forget about all the boys your own age
They don’t have a clue what to do anyway
It’s two years above is where the fun starts

Jennifer’s mouth is getting tired
But if it’s love that she desires
These are the skills she will require

Kevin was drinking fortified wine
He wasn’t exactly beauty refined
But he was the door you wanted behind
It was your turn; he led you away
You took one last look at where you used to play
Before you got down and focused your mind

All you could smell was Calvin Klein
All you could taste was skin for a time
You gagged at the start but soon you were flying
But it was more work than you had first thought
It started to hurt but you didn’t stop
Until you had crossed the finishing line

And like those future plans you keep
And treasure before you go to sleep
It tasted warm if not as sweet

Talking to Clare the day after that
You asked if she swallowed or whether she spat
She said if she loved him she’d knock it right back
And behind the hedge down by the swings
You’re learning about all of these things
Yeah, Jennifer, you are on the right track

Jennifer’s mouth is getting tired
But if it’s love that she desires
These are the skills she will require
