Raised on a council estate, the only Greeks on the block,
Playing on the green outside where the local kids would flock.
Belinda Carlisle told us, that ‘Heaven Is a Place on Earth’
Only Bucks Fizz swore it was ‘The Land of Make Believe’,
A mixed tape of my musical, spiritual birth.
Confusion reigned in ‘Our House’ still,
‘Teardrops’ drenched my cheeks,
My story behind SMASH HITS poster covered walls,
Memorizing tunes, my world, lyrical geek.
Dancing tall on tip toes, Thursday nights, TOTP,
‘Running Up That Hill’ of teenage life,
‘I Want to Break Free’.
