Milkshake Flavour – Written Monday 14th November 1994 (Aged 19)

Milkshake Flavour

do your own thing
if you care
do yourself a favour
do something with your hair
get a different milkshake flavour
do your own thing
do not sink, just swim
you can bounce
on something that gives you space
you can shout
and watch your words go to waste
get up and leave
but do not pack your case
you have got to believe
you have got to know
do your own thing

James Garratt – Monday 14th November 1994
