Under a blue and white beach umbrella

Siting pretty waiting on a fella

Who I’m fairly sure will be a no show

So I pack up my things and trudge home,

Clasping my clutch down the avenues I know

Every tramp casting every shadow

I don’t know why I’m singing this song with tears in my eyes

I’m sure you’ve got my number, suppose I’m saving my surprise

For when you call, this night won’t matter at all

Tell me baby, why’d you go and let me down again?

Swept under the rug acting just as if nothing has happened

And just because my heart can take it

Does not mean you should go out of your way to break it

At the gate I wait ‘neathe the marquee,

That brightly reads From Here To Eternity

Which is about how long I’ve been here waiting

It’s possible that you were asked to work late,

The subway stalled or you took down the wrong date

To a fault I tend to always have faith

Suppose I’ll head in and stare blankly at the movie-screen

And afterwards when I took myself out for ice cream is when I saw

You with someone else, that was the last straw
