04 The Trial Of Johnny Temperate (Part 1)
Part 1 - Hotel & Backstory.
In which Johnny tries to betray Angela, whose suspicions are raised when Jenny calls.
In which we learn about Julia’s involvement in the affair.
So Jennifer sits in her room
Her birthdays money spent on French perfume
Not knowing that the number on her suite door had slipped
Where it read nine it should’ve read six
So Johnny goes marching home alone
Wages blown on cologne
And Angela answers
No John is working late, my husband isn’t home
Knowing that this wasn’t a cold call like it claimed
A nervous girl’s voice more pitied than blamed
Will Johnny be good tonight?
He could and he should
And Jonathan sees he’s on trial
Evidence presented but in denial
Not knowing that his sentence would be Angela’s wrath
And Jenny’s necklace bought with holiday cash
So Johnny just sits and smiles for a while
And she remembers the aisle
Jennifer told Julia that John was handsome
Made her cross her heart to keep a secret
Julia was never gonna keep it
Notes were passed behind her back and someone one soon told John
Jennifer was blushing like the bride she wasn’t
John had engineered a random meeting
Thought that he could hear how hard her heart was beting
Heaving breathing caught her eye
No-one needs to know
Hotel, Motel anywhere they’re gonna go
Has to be discrete if they’re gonna meet
But what of Angela
Is she the girl that he loves?
