Every blue song in the world has the answer
So I'll tell you in the morning,
The words I mumbled into soft white pillows
On a sleepy autumn dawn
Oh well, we'll go to the market
Go to the market
Where the good weather goes
We leave our prints in a dusty closet
Oh we'll steal each other's clothes

There's a streetlamp on in the middle of the day
It's not too far out of our way
It's such a lovely day
What do you say?

Or I can always
Pay the woman on my way back home
Pay her on my way
Pay the lady on my way
Pay her on my way
Pay the woman on my way back home
If you let me go

    General CommentPay The Lady

    Every blue song in the world has the answers
    Well can I tell you in the morning?
    Words mumble into soft white pillows
    In that sleepy autumn dawn

    We'll go to the market
    (We'll go to the market)
    When the good weather goes
    We'll leave prints in the dusty books
    And we'll steal each other clothes

    There's a streetlamp on in the middle of the day
    Not too far out of our way
    And it's such a lovely day
    What do you say?

    There's a streetlamp on in the middle of the day
    Not too far out of our way
    It's such a lovely day
    What do you say?

    Well I can always
    Pay the woman on my way back home
    Pay her on my way
    Well I'll pay the woman on my way
    Well I'll pay her on my way
    I'll pay the woman on my way back home
    If you let me go home

    Well every blue song in the world has the answers
    Well can I tell you in the morning?
    Words mumble into soft white pillows
    In that sleepy autumn dawn

    We can climb the hill
    (We'll climb the hillside)
    And look over our town
    We'll sit and smoke and drink some tea
    And watch the sun go down
    We'll let the drink surround

    There's a streetlamp on in the middle of the day
    Not too far out of our way
    It's such a lovely day
    What do you say?

    There's a streetlamp on in the middle of the day
    Not too far out of our way
    It's such a lovely day
    What do you say?

    I can always
    Pay the woman on my way back home
    Pay her on my way
    I'll pay the woman on my way
    Well I'll pay her on my way
    Pay the woman on my way back home
    If you let me go home

    There's a streetlamp on in the middle of the day
