Her first day at the job, John is the one
Who's told to take her round, to show her things.
Inside, a jubilant alarm bell rings.
This guy is dangerous; this guy is fun;
She likes his casual style; she likes his hair
And predatory grin; she likes the sense
Of "Job's crap but you've got to work somewhere."
He seems to radiate experience,
And when he asks, "Right, d'you feel like a drink?"
She loves that feeling like she's near a brink.
