10Cc – Under Your Thumb lyrics

I was standing in the station being pounded by the rain
So I chose the last compartment of a stationary train
I felt someone get in behind me but I never caught their eye
But I thought I heard a woman's voice whispering, "Goodbye"

So I lay down in the darkness with the beer and coffee stains
And I stared out at the thunder through the broken window panes
And although the storm was booming like an engine in the sky
I'm sure I heard a woman's voice cry
"Don't wanna be under your thumb forever
Don't wanna be under your thumb forever
Don't wanna be under your thumb
It's over and done
I'll never be under your thumb forever"

So I rolled myself a cigarette and smoked it on my own
But it didn't stop the whispers or the smell of her cologne
Then she rose up out of nowhere and her hair is full of steam
And she stuck her head out the window and screamed, and screamed, she screamed
"Don't wanna be under your thumb forever
Don't wanna be under your thumb forever
Don't wanna be under your thumb
It's over and done
I'll never be under your thumb forever"

So I picked up an old newspaper to read and I noticed something very strange indeed
So I looked a little closer and it chilled me to the bone
"Woman throws herself from speeding train, identity unknown"
But I recognized the picture of the woman who was dead
And underneath the picture it said
"Don't wanna be under your thumb forever
Don't wanna be under your thumb forever
Don't wanna be under your thumb
It's over and done
I'll never be under your thumb forever
Don't wanna be under your thumb forever
Don't wanna be under your thumb forever
Don't wanna be under your thumb"
