Now that you have drunk yourself into a stupor
I will change the month on your calendar
And when you wake you’ll be outraged I let you sleep into November
But you never heard me whisper

But isn’t that the way with us all?
It’s summer then it’s colder
And suddenly it’s fall

Now that you have screwed yourself sufficiently for both of us
I will attempt to walk you home
By the time the nursery rhymes are over you’ll be wide awake and wondering
Why the room is so cold

But I was on the landing listening for the sound
Of a car on the driveway or feet upon the ground
But all I ever heard was yeah the rain kept coming down
When you arrived we went inside and fooled around
When you arrived we went inside and fooled around

But isn’t that the way with us all?
It’s summer then it’s colder
And suddenly it’s fall

Well you were in the kitchen reading about the war
So I came in and kissed you, and it began to pour
So we stayed in our pjs and slept a little more
While the trees blew outside in the storm
While the trees blew outside in the storm

Now that you have drunk yourself into a stupor
I will change the month on your calendar
And when you wake you’ll be outraged I let you sleep into November
But you never heard me whisper
