Judy came by and said I’ll fix you something good for dinner
it’s only ice-cream you live on
I said I had a loving mother
she don’t look like you
I know you mean well after all
but most of what you say
reminds me of my wreck
misery is an old friend only finds it hard to say goodbye and move on
and though my life went down the drain
pride hasn’t failed me yet
so thanks for coming by maybe some other time
I can’t shine tonight
I can’t shine tonight
it is no use to try
I can’t shine tonight
Judy turned back and said I hope you won’t regret it
I’ve seen most of the kinds of you falling
I said I’ll call you when I’m landed
right before I’m drowned
I know you mean well after all
but none of what you say
turns me any better
disgrace is my mate has been around so long that can’t just say goodbye
and move on
and though my life went down the drain
pride hasn’t failed me yet
so thanks for coming by maybe some other time
