|GRETA GARBO ON THE BLACKPOOL BUS|
met Greta Garbo on a Blackpool bus
going to visit a friend
"Ee luv, you do look like her;
I've seen all her films, you know;
I think I must be one of her biggest fans!"
"Have I many fans in Blackpool?",
biting her lips at the utterance of "I"
"0 hundreds, luv, and I reckon on
there must be at least a million
in the whole of Lancashire
will you come to tea with me tomorrow?"
She scribbled her address
on the back of a brown envelope
that had had her gas-bill in;
"Must dash this is my stop
see you tomorrow".
George told her she was daft
but enjoyed the ham and ate the cake.
Two weeks later
a letter arrived
with two complimentary tickets
for the film premiere in London.
where she could find
the money for the train-fare
