After the applause had died down
And the people drifted away

She climbed down off the bar
and went out the door
To the hotel
that she called home
It had greenish walls
a bathroom in the hall

And I said no, no, no

And I said no, no, no
oh, Lady Day
And I said no, no, no
oh, Lady Day
I said no, no, no
oh, Lady Day
And I said no, no, no
oh, Lady Day
And I said no, no, no
oh, Lady Day
