Come in! Come in!
Look around, take your time.
You’re sure to find what you’re looking for.
A chair, a table?
Take it, cheap at twice the price.
A desk, as good as new, not a mark on it.
Nobody ever sat here and wrote their heart out.
There’s the lamp to go with it.
What more could you possibly want?
Have you seen the armchair?
Take a pew, take the weight off, read a book;
books we have too, the best authors, writers you will find in no bookstore;
snapped up they were, long ago, classics well hidden from view.
You want toys?
Posters for your walls?
You came to the right place, it’s all here.
An Aladdin’s cave of treasure.
I can see you’d love to splurge,
furnishing your own little nest, are you?
setting up home together?
Don’t be shy, tell me what you want
and you shall have it.
And just for you,
I’ll throw in the planter.
A fool to myself, that’s what I am.
Never could resist young love.
