trouble @ mill

Diane went against society and married out of her class.
Jimmybob was delighted with his child bride, 
a wee posh lass
Mr Prentice watched the sea through European 
dune grass
Whilst Mrs P smashed the vase of 
Venetian glass

Happy families, happy families, hey ho

They shortened their names to Jim and 
Di
And she learned to cook steak and 
kiderly pie
Mr P continued to walk by the sea and 
spy
Whilst Mrs P was barely getting 
by

Happy families, happy families, hey ho

Jim got a job went into scientific re
search
Di took work in the parish 
church
Mr P found an interest in silver 
birch
And Mrs P began a campaign to be
smirch

Happy families, happy families, hey ho

Mr P in t' Mill continued to spin the 
yarn
Di was pregnant cooking chilli con 
carne
Jim was meeting Sylvie in the tithe 
barn
But Mrs P's friend saw them - 
darn

Happy families, Happy families, hey ho

Di moved unhappily 
home
Jim got himself in more and more 
loam
Mr P at the Mill polished all the 
chrome
And Mrs P she drizzled a rose water 
foam

Happy family, happy family, hey ho
