A letter from America!

The postman must have wondered who was sending a letter to Liverpool,
From Hollywood, California, USA!
Back in the nineteen fifties, that sort of thing just didn't happen every day.
Not to an ordinary terraced house in Walton, anyway!
The mother took the letter in, and she went back into the parlour to listen again to Dean Martin singing 'Sway!'

The schoolboy came home and he opened up the letter.
If he had just won the football pools-he couldn't have felt any better!
He stared at the contents in a mixture of wonder and disbelief!
For inside the envelope were two signed photos!
From Universal Studios-Of his favourite movie villain!
The one and only-Lee Van Cleef!
