“By my Name Jehovah I was Not Known”

A name above the shop door
A manufacturer’s sense of pride
Businesses are called by a name
That emanates far and wide.

But broke into a million pieces
Changed to suit every need
God’s Name keeps disappearing
Under a mountain of greed.

In a church you’ll find a name
Sometimes several or more
But look above the altar
But look above the door.

His name, a sign of quality
Just like a Saville Row suit
You know that it’s been tailored
With a skill that’s absolute

The body beneath the clothing
That dances like Fred Astaire;
But the makers Name is forgotten
Though his work is everywhere.

Song: She’s just the Girl in the Adverts

Once again I’m asked – who’s that by your side?
Who is that girl I saw you with? Are they being paranoid?
She’s is just a friend of mine we’re sharing the same hurt
I’m the boy from the looking glass crowd, and she’s the girl in the advert

Look and you will see her on posters everywhere
don’t ask me who she is now, you must surely know
She’s the lonely girl in the adverts at every port of call
The lonely girl in the adverts who looks from every wall

They wonder whom I’m seeing, they must not use their eyes
I’m the boy in the looking glass, She’s the girl on wall
She’s the girl in the adverts who’s walking by my side
She’s the girl from the adverts So don’t be paranoid

She’s the girl in the adverts Selling the thing you like to eat
Please don’t be so paranoid When you see her walking with me
She’s the girl in the adverts the girl in the camera lens
She’s the girl in the adverts and we’re just very good friends

She’s just from the advert There’s nothing going on
She’s just the girl from the adverts She’s just the girl in my song
You see her on the billboards at every port of call
You see her in the bus stop she’s posted on the wall

She’s just the girl in the advert Please just use your eyes
She’s just the girl in the adverts So don’t be paranoid
She’s in the ice cream advert The chocolate bar one too
She’s just the girl in the adverts Those advertise to you

Chocolate bars and ice cream in a tropical paradise
She’s just the girl in the advert The one who always looks nice
Surely you have seen her Why don’t you use your eyes?
She’s just the girl in the adverts So don’t be paranoid

And if you see her out with me don’t be so surprised
She’s just the girl in the adverts So don’t be paranoid
Surely you must know her By now she’s everywhere
She’s just the girl in the adverts The one with the long straight hair

She’s the girl in the adverts who never speaks aloud
She’s just the girl in the adverts And I’m the boy from the looking glass crowd
She’s the girl in the adverts She doesn’t want to offend
She’s just the girl in the adverts And she’s really  my friend

You don’t know who she is This girl who’s by my side
Now you think what you want to think and you being paranoid
She’s just the girl in the advert Why don’t you use your eyes?
She’s just the girl in the advert that here by my side

She’s advertising ice cream and of chocolate too
She’s the girl with the long straight hair Who advertises to you
She’s the girl in the advert there’s no beginning, there’s no end
She’s just the girl in the advert And she really is my friend
