It was three in the morning when she took me apart She wrecked the furniture, she wrecked my heart She danced on my head like Arthur Murray The scars ain't never gonna mend in a hurry Just when I thought I could learn to forget her Right through the door come a tear-stained letter Oh, oh, oh, lord, lord Cry and cry if it makes you feel better Set it all down in a tear-stained letter Oh, oh, oh, lord, lord Cry and cry if it makes you feel better Set it all down in a tear-stained letter Well my head was beating like a song by the Clash It was writin' cheques that my body couldn't cash Got to my feet, I was reelin' and dizzy I went for the phone, but the line was busy Just when I thought that things would get better Right through the door come a tear-stained letter Oh, oh, oh, lord, lord Cry and cry if it makes you feel better Set it all down in a tear-stained letter Oh, oh, oh, lord, lord Cry and cry if it makes you feel better Set it all down in a tear-stained letter Well I like coffee and I like tea But I just don't like this fiddle-di-dee It makes me nervous, it gives me the hives Waiting for a kiss from a bunch of fives Just when I thought I could learn to forget her Right through the door come a tear-stained letter Oh, oh, oh, lord, lord Cry and cry if it makes you feel better Set it all down in a tear-stained letter Oh, oh, oh, lord, lord Cry and cry if it makes you feel better Set it all down in a tear-stained letter Oh, oh, oh, lord, lord Cry and cry if it makes you feel better Set it all down in a tear-stained letter (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2017)
