The air is grey but the temperature’s warm
Late afternoon in an old Kent town
My mood is neutral, kind of brown –
Suddenly feel that it might storm
And I’ve no brolly but never mind
On the whole I feel fate’s been kind
Who minds getting wet when you’ve got a Rose
A treasure, a pleasure past all dreaming?
The sun might just as well be beaming
Everything’s gleaming where she goes
The world transformed is my life with my Allie
Come dark or distress she’ll always rally
Oh, let it soak me to the skin
I’ll soon be home – and she’ll be in.
