The Independent Culture

The barnet always faultless

The sidemen on the case

His stroppy fifth-form visage

Screwed into a grimace

With fireglow Rickenbacker

And easy-payment suit

In early days were gawky

With boxer's voice to boot

Like Henry Cooper singing

A serenade to Brut

He later found refinement

Became a francophile

Through Kinks and Curtis Mayfield

Took counselling in Style

In Euro chic and suntan

He still refused to smile

Through Winwood out to Wild Wood

Then back to Stanley Road

As handsome as a racehorse

Po-faced as a commode

The ravages of stardom

Unwritten on his face

He's not the smile council

Mind you he's no disgrace
