As viewers of Channel 4's `The Fame Factor' will be aware, rock stars also have partners in life...

The Rock Wife

She had pouted by his side

In a hundred dodgy bars

They were spliced in holy deadlock

Through an archway of guitars

She emerged into the sunlight

In suspenders, veil and train

In the parish of St Charlie

The patron of cocaine

She honeymooned in Harrods

With her sisters and her Mum

While his lordship and his cronies

Turned their house into a slum

On returning with her lawyer

And a writer from Hello!

He said, "Yes, we'll keep the horses

But the leopard has to go."

Then she named her child Gandalf

And she made her last decisions

She would not stay with a maniac

Who could sleep-throw televisions.
