“You Wear It Well”

I had nothing to do on this hot afternoon
but to settle down and write you a line
I’ve been meaning to phone you but from Minnesota
hell it’s been a very long time
You wear it well
A little old fashioned but that’s all right
Well I suppose you’re thinking I bet he’s sinking
or he wouldn’t get in touch with me
Oh I ain’t begging or losing my head
I sure do want you to know that you wear it well
There ain’t a lady in the land so fine
Remember them basement parties, your brother’s karate
the all day rock and roll shows
Them homesick blues and radical views
haven’t left a mark on you, you wear it well
A little out of time but I don’t mind

But I ain’t forgetting that you were once mine
but I blew it without even tryin’
Now I’m eatin’ my heart out
tryin’ to get a letter through

Since you’ve been gone it’s hard to carry on
I’m gonna write about the birthday gown that I bought in town
when you sat down and cried on the stairs
You knew it did not cost the earth, but for what it’s worth
You made me feel a millionaire and you wear it well
Madame Onassis got nothing on you

Anyway, my coffee’s cold and I’m getting told
that I gotta get back to work
So when the sun goes low and you’re home all alone
think of me and try not to laugh and I wear it well
I don’t object if you call collect
‘cos I ain’t forgetting that you were once mine
but I blew it without even tryin’
Now I’m eatin’ my heart out tryin’ to get back to you

After all the years I hope it’s the same address
Since you’ve been gone it’s hard to carry on
