I thought that it might be you…

27 01 2010

I thought that it might be you…
I THOUGHT THAT IT MIGHT BE YOU…
There was a knock on the door;
I thought that it might be you.
But I had no clue,
That it was the neighbor’s boy,
With a dish in his hand saying:
‘Happy new year to you’

The phone rang – I jumped from my seat;
I thought that it might be you.
But I was in for a surprise…
It was the telephone company,
Telling me in a melodious voice:
‘Your bill is overdue’

I got a letter in the mail;
I thought that it might be you.
I was mistaken once again,
It was a letter from MIT,
Breaking in the best way they could:

I got a ‘New Mail’ pop-up on MSN;
I thought that it might be you.
O’ what a fool I was,
It was the Hotmail Staff,
Sending me that typical junk-mail note:
‘We have a great summer surprise for you’

The pager beeped in my pocket;
I thought that it might be you.
How lost in your memory I was,
It was A.B.S. Jafri Saab,
Asking me that ‘Monday morning’
‘Where the hell are you>’

Someone called my name in the market;
I thought that it might be you.
It couldn’t have been worse,
It was Azhar Saab,
Telling me (what I already knew),
‘Beta Nadir, physics mein paidal hay tu’

Then someone touched my shoulder;
I thought that it might be you.
But …. AaaAaaaaaaAhhhhhh
WHY? Why didn’t I realize?!!
A stupid pigeon had pooped on me,
And when I looked up, it simply flew!
