Farewell then Bev
Mother to Steve and Andy (where did he go?)
Wife of jailbird Jim
One time Queen of the street
Your abdication has shaken us
To your foundation.
No skirt was too short
No blouse too low.
Your earrings always dangled
Your smile always sparkled
Your advice was always better than your example
We wish (ed) you the happiness
You never quite found.
(Slightly) less brassy than Bet Lynch
(Alot) more glamorous than Annie Walker
The Rovers and the Street will miss
The rap of your heels on cobbled stones ( now gone)
And your humour-
Your reason for Jim’s tardiness?
“There must have been a hold up.”
