Yeah, said it’s all right
I won’t forget
All the times I’ve waited patiently for you
And you’ll do just what you choose to do
And I will be alone again tonight my dear

Yeah, I heard a funny thing
Somebody said to me
You know that I could be in love with almost everyone
I think that people are
The greatest fun
And I will be alone again tonight my dear

And I will be alone again tonight my dear

Yeah, I heard a funny thing
Somebody said to me
You know that I could be in love with almost everyone
I think that people are
The greatest fun
And I will be alone again tonight my dear

And I will be alone again tonight my dear

    General CommentI think this song is about a man who loves a woman who is very outgoing and loving… She's off having relationships and having fun with lots of other people, while he's alone wishing she would settle down with him. He says, "All the times I've waited patiently for you, and you'll do just what you choose to do…" I think the other quote is coming from her: "You know that I could be in love with almost everyone, I think that people are the greatest fun." So she's having fun meeting lots of people and is not ready to settle down with him, and that's why he's "alone again tonight."

    General CommentI prefer the original, but probably only because I'm mad about Love. They're fantastic. Seriously, try Da Capo, I think it's way better than Forever Changes.

    But I also love Calexico, one of the best modern bands around, and who are strangely under-appreciated.

    General CommentThank you ThomYorkeGuy, for bringing me to listen to the original as well.
    This song is so beautiful, very few melodies thouch me like this (actually more than the lyrics, even though I like them too). Both versions are beautiful, though less different than I expected

    General CommentYeah, I heard a funny thing
    Somebody said to me
    You know that I could be in love with almost everyone
    I think that people are
    The greatest fun
    And I will be alone again tonight my dear

    one thing..: it just fits me...and so many other people... although it's a cover it's great
