( simples )



i am an inflatable man

yes - just like a tyre or a chair

or sort-of dinghy

thingamijiggy

so just pump us up with some air


we stick like glue to our own kind

aye - my wife is a blow-up doll

our children: balloons

with faces like moons

but we too have hearts, minds & souls


these things aint debatable man

oh no - so don't be so stroppy

sometimes i'm punctured

there's a hole somewhere

then i wilt & go all floppy


i am an inflatable man

yet nevertheless i'm a man

we're just like you but

struggle in high winds

so please accept us if you can
