That's always annoyed me a wee bit.

Maybe it shuid be 'sitting...' as opposed to 'sat...'. It's ambiguous as, with the rest of the sentence that the artistic licence (and meter) leaves out, it *cuid* be correct, grammatically, that the two had been 'sat' there like bookends, but 'sitting' would be more likely, as if they had free will to do so.

But - free will, history, and two old 'divorcees', still with hot and vastly separate agenda (agenda being plural, another Denz-grammaticism) being what they are, I guess someone did have tae sit the two of 'em there together.

There's goes the licence of artistry.

And - eat my words - (soon) here comes S+G's 2004 tour details!!

Wuidnae ye jist think tha' sich a stickler for grammatical accuracy cuid spell 'license'?

Me, I'll take the capricious sense of licentiousness and say 'licence' is English for 'license'...

The whole song sort of waffles around between the present and future tenses... so maybe this is a venture into the past.

And aren't they both men? Then they would be divorcs rather than divorces.

Poor S&G. So picked-apart.

I really did believe that 'licence' was a British spelling.

'licence' is the British spelling.

I have now lost all understanding of the English language and have no idea how it's spelled in either.
