Linton Kwesi Johnson: All The Way With LKJ
Deanne Pearson, The Face, July 1980
Whenever it rains/I think of you
And I always remember that day in May
When I saw you walking in the rain
I know not what it was nor why
For usually I'm quite shy.
I asked you your name/You smiled and said Loraine
I asked if I could share your umbrella
You smiled and said 'what a cheeky lickle fellah'
— 'Loraine', from Bass Culture, by Linton Kwesi Johnson
