Don’t wait up for me,
I’ll get my own tea,
Go to bed, don’t hesitate,
I’ll tell you now; I’ll be late…again,

And as the penny drops
I find my meaning lacks sincerity,
Beneath my hard held smile,
You’ve touched my deepest sensitivity…again,

Heat wave, summer last,
It’s gone, not long passed,
Turned water into wine,
Will it be so fine…again?

While you were standing there,
I found a meaning to absurdity,
Tears springing from my eyes,
As I fell backwards to infinity,

Water the flowers please my dear,
Don’t want the weeds to grow in here,

I think, with all this rain,
I’ve got water on the brain,
Turn the tap and let it out,
All things turn about…again,

Lying asleep last night,
I thought I was a man to dominate,
But now I’ve thought again,
I know I’ll just lie here and ruminate,

Prune down the roses, won’t you learn,
Don’t want them growing out of turn…again.
