Opportunity Shops

Saw me in the pub tonight.
Still not a bad place to be, rainy days.
Saw me with the women around me,
still keeping the second-hand shops alive.

So much for fancies and thrills.
Fancies win out, I suppose.
Nostalgia is keeping their image alive.
Opportunity shops are keeping them in dresses
and I was never one to miss an opportunity.
