Cross the table over coffee just this mornin'
My woman caught me by surprise without a warnin'
She said, "Honey, you talked in your sleep"
And then she began to weep
As she said, "Tell me now and tell me truly
With a blank look on my face I searched my mind
For an answer or excuse of some kind
But the words wouldn't come and my mind was blank
Slowly my head just sank
When she said, "Honey, you know I love you truly
But who's Julie?"
Oh Julie, what's this hold you've got on me
On my mind, in my dreams
You know you shouldn't be there Julie
I'd like to say Julie's just a friend of mine
But I know that would not satisfy your mind
You see Julie gave me somethin' you did not
She remembered what you forgot
And honey, I'm sorry I have to tell you so cruely
But now you know and don't you ever ask me again
