Pocketbooks - Fireworks At Midnight lyrics

I started the year in a heated marquee
Working time and a half to an affluent crowd
And it’s drinks from the left and it’s food from the right
Where the platters that matter run clockwise all night
And I’ll try and remember your order
If you try and remember your wife
And I’ll try to forget
I’m working time and a half at the start of the year
Try working time and a half when you don’t have a choice

The fireworks start so it’s midnight I guess
And the couples embrace like they’ve only just met
And I long for the frisson of passion they share
Not just sweethearts hand-holding, but total immersion
I’m trying to capture the feeling
To replay it at will, but for now I’m stuck waiting here
For the first kiss of the start of the year
I’m stuck waiting for the first kiss of the start of the year
