Inspired by Red Nose Day 1


I remember the day
And knowing it's coming I couldn't wait
The first red nose day
I asked my mum if I could stay up late

A day at school without a uniform
A plastic nose to keep my real nose warm
Aching to get away back to my home
Then I crash upon the sofa and I turn the TV on and then they say

You know you can't phone now
I know you want to give and I know it's hard
You know you can't phone now
You need to be eighteen with a credit card

Alas you can't phone now
Though Lenny Henry's telling you to give it all
You know you can't phone now
Just wait a decade then you can make that call
