Real Tuesday Weld – The Day Before You Came lyrics

I must have left my house at eight, because I always do
My train, I'm certain, left the station just when it
Was due
I must have read the morning paper going into town
And having gotten through the editorial, no doubt I
Must have frowned
I must have made my desk around a quarter after nine
With letters to be read, and heaps of papers waiting to
Be signed
I must have gone to lunch at half past twelve or so
The usual place, the usual bunch
And still on top of this I'm pretty sure it must have
The day before you came

I must have lit my seventh cigarette at half past two
And at the time I never even noticed I was blue
I must have kept on dragging through the business of
The day
And without really noticing, I must have she'd a part of
Me away
At five I must have left, there's no exception to the
A matter of routine, I've done it ever since I finished
The train back home again
Undoubtedly I must have read the evening paper then
Oh yes, I'm sure my life was well within it's usual
The day before you came

I must have opened my front door at eight o'clock or so
And stopped along the way to buy some Chinese food to
I'm sure I had my dinner watching something on tv
There's not, I think, a single episode of Dallas that I
Didn't see
I must have gone to bed around a quarter after ten
I sleep so much these days, I need to be in bed by then
Or maybe I read a while
The latest one by Marilyn French or something in that
It's funny, but I had no sense of living without aim
The day before you came

And turning out the light
I must have yawned and dragged my way through yet
Another night
And rattling on the roof I maybe heard the sound of
[I love the rain]
The day before you came
