  • "We're upwardly mobile don't you know?
    We can't possibly talk to you!
    Does your child have a pony?
    Do you have a gold card?
    Have you heard of Jimmy Choo?"

    "Look! We drive a 4x4.
    I bet you don't. You can't, you're poor!
    High and mighty we sit, as we drive down the road.
    So far up our arse, that we nearly implode!"

    "With a fat city bonus, we're incredibly smug.
    We're currently having our basement dug.
    We've got Polish builders installing a spa,
    Brand new kitchen, a gym, and a home cinema."

    "We now have an old maid, where we had an Au Pair,
    I suspect she and Hubby, did have an affair.
    He said he was having a mid-life crisis,
    So I bought him a Harley, to quell future vices."

    "I did have a career, once was fully employed,
    But I now look for ways, to fill up this void.
    So I'm fully paid up, at the smartest health club,
    And my trainer joins me, for some fun in the tub."

    "My husband works late, so we can afford,
    The house and three cars, plus our holidays abroad.
    To the women out there,with whom this strikes a chord,
    Deep down inside, I am terribly bored.
