Another Opportunity Missed (M.Brooks) Another true story, well pretty much. Tells of my lack of female conquests despite chances I've had. Life's like that at times.
I remember back in form one or two On another trip to Bristol Zoo Saw the black panther, saw the white tiger Saw a girl called Rosie drinking cider Time quickly passed as we laid on the grass But the meeting was fleeting as I went back to my class We nearly touched we nearly kissed It was just an opportunity missed
I'd just left school I was starting late When I went out on my first date She drank Baileys I drank Dark And we watched Wales win in the Cardiff Arms Park Went back to her flat in Riverside I never never knew where to start so I never tried If she was tempted by my body she managed to resist So another opportunity missed
CHORUS Cupid you're a bastard can't you ever get it right? Are you just a lousy shot or do you do it out of spite? I ask you to help me but you fail to assist Your arrows miss their targets and another opportunity's missed
Once at an arty farty party I was yapping to a yank about contact karate We talked of Wales and the USA She talked of leaving the very next day Phoned all the way from Omaha “Hello” “Hi” “Goodbye” “tara” I wanted her to stay but I couldn't insist So another opportunity missed
In Milton Keynes was a girl called Estelle We were never ever lovers but we got along well Down Downhead Park we'd take her dogs for a walk I didn't like her accent but I liked the way she talked Nearly getting close till one weekend I went off on my tod she went off to meet a friend From then on in her mind I ceased to exist And another opportunity missed
The closest I got to a love at first sight Was with a girl that I met on a bus one night We were getting on great we were getting on fine But I never got her number 'cause I never found time I was sure I'd see her again But that changed when I changed my job around then Now I suppose she'd top my list Of opportunities missed
The other day after a session in the pub I met a nice girl in a night club I stared into her eyes she stared into mine We shared a conversation and a bottle of wine I made made sure with care I took Her address down in my address book Lost the address book when I walked hoe pissed So another opportunity missed
