And So Farewell


And so farewell Annie Ross.

You were a well known jazz singer, it says here.

Jazz is similar to music

Except it's rubbish.

People who listen to jazz wear black turtle-neck sweaters

And smoke Gitaines,

Gitaines are similar to cigaraettes

Except they're rubbish and smell like old tyres

Jazz is sued on the soundtrack of French New Wave films

Which are similar to ordinary films

Except they're rubbish

With no car chases, explosions or fights

Just French people sitting around smoking Gitains,

And talking about how miserable they are.
