you're welcome? Thank you? Please? Me being cynical. We had a thread on this sort of thing a good few months ago, and I can't remember who was involved, but a saying I hadn't heard in decades - but some had fairly recently 'Well! I'll go to the foot of our stairs!'

Thank you for the days, the days you gave me
