Where do you go when I'm not around?
Who do you love when I'm out of town?

The butcher, the baker
The thin undertaker who makes not a sound?
Who do you love when I'm out of town?

Have all my dreams come tumbling down?
Who's in your arms where I used to drown?

The old money-lender
The lonely bartender, the carnival clown?
Who do you love when I'm out of town?

Don't say "it doesn't matter anyway,"
Because it doesn't matter what you say

All of our pages are turning to brown
We're breaking up, and I'm breaking down

The man in the forest, the dashing young florist
The nurse musclebound?
Who do you love when I'm out of town?
