"(when I) box the days (up)" as written by and Michael Doughty....
I fell in love with the day drunk
yeah, the whole day long
well, she kissed the (bulb?)
on the morning through
and then she sang out the words to the wrong song

Oh, your love grips me like a golden vise
or, the clenches of a champion
I dreamed I'm in a ring at the Grand Palais
and then I sang out the words to the wrong song

and when I box the days up
yeah, when I box the days up
oh when I box the days up
when I box the days

Dreamed I was the king in Nampam
and I was giving up my throne
all the people chatting on the muddy banks
said I'm an okay king, and I sure can play the saxophone.

Then I woke up in a motel
I was not so far from there
heard the shower running through a closed door
and saw a dress laying across the desk chair.

yeah when we round the strays up
oh when we round the strays up
yeah, the asphalt soaks the rays up
