That's When You Fall - #1

Down Cyprus Avenue
With a childlike vision leaping into view
Clicking, clacking of the high heeled shoe
Ford & Fitzroy, Madame George

Marching with the soldier boy behind
He much older now
With hat on drinking wine
And that smell of sweet perfume
Comes drifting through
The cool night air like Shalimar

And outside they're making all the stops
The kids out in the street collecting bottle-tops
Gone for cigarettes and matches to the shops
Happy takings Madame George

That's when you fall
That's when you fall
Yeah, that's when you fall.
