She said, "Who answered the phone, I don't understand,
I thought you'd be alone tonight? "
I said, "... The girl who lives here,
She said the band could stay if we bought the beer. "
She said. "I don't like the sound of that,
Tell me what she looks like - thin or fat? "
I said, "Uh... I can't really say.
What does it matter anyway? "
I said, "It's good to hear your voice,
I really do miss you but we made the right choice. "
She said, "I hope you're eating well,
And living here without you is living though hell. "
I said, "... Well I may be home early,
It'll be a few days before I know surely. "
"Shirley! Is that her name?
Is she in love, and do you feel the same? "
No I don't feel the same.
I cannot find a way to make peace with you today.
So where will be we tomorrow?
I busted my ass to make it home
And when I got there she wasn't alone.
She said, "You're home so soon!
I didn't get a chance to clean the room. "
I said, "... Forget this house...
Road cheese calls both man and mouse. "
She said, "Don't end it this way!
I really did miss you every day... Well...
Almost every day... In every way.
