Subject: RE: Lyr Req: cockney rhyming slang songs
A song for 'er indoors'.

Me old 'trouble and strife'.

Tried many things and I failed
Patched up the boat and I balled
But all through - my 'trouble and strife'
You were there to share my life.

Well I twisted and I turned
Touched the fire, got my fingers burned
But all through - my 'trouble and strife'
You were there to share my life.

Well I looked but not always found
Been a long way up and a long way down
But all through - my 'trouble and strife'
You were there to share my life.

Felt the pleasure, felt the pain
I fell off of that 'gravy train'
But all through - my 'trouble and strife'
You were there to share my life.

What ever the future brings
In my life, I wouldn't change a thing
For all through - my 'trouble and strife'
You were there to share my life.
