The Life of Spice
Our own home-grown Madonnabes
Hands posed near naughty places
Their neat Miss Selfridge figures
Their Alliance & Leicester faces
With eyes which give the game away
You sense the smiles straining
When tabloids want bikini shots
Exteriors - and it's raining.
The wit and wisdom of their words
Are trundled past you daily:
"I used to breed chinchillas and
Me uncle lives in Rayleigh.
We're Tories but we're liberal
We're very slightly Labour
Coz Thatcher was a Spice Girl and
The Pope's me next door neighbour."
They're number one in USA
They're all extremely cute
Like pictures sold in Woolworths
Of some kittens in a boot
I bet the gruelling schedule
Can sometimes make them weepy
Geri, Mel, Victoria, Mel,
Er... Grumpy, Doc and Sleepy?
