By the way did I hear you say
If some night I seem too lonely
You would stay
Oh and by the way
Have I told you yet that only recently
He moved out on me
Took the towels we stole
From some motel in Tennessee
He was gone long before he really left
I knew it ...
By the way he began to say:
Love takes time, I'm in a hurry
Anyway that's all yesterday
Let's get back to us
Why worry?
If you try calling by and by
Oh, and by the I thought I mention
You can't stay...
Neath the lights
You don't look a thing like he did
And it's time to play
It's another day
Why can't we make love fall
By the way?
