Janis Ian - Boy, I Really Tied One On Lyrics



Boy, I really tied one on
I spent the night away from home
I know you're not to blame
If I can't recall your name
And I'm sorry if it causes you pain

Boy, I really lost my head
I woke up in a double bed
Allow me the pleasure of taking your measure
Though I'm sure you ain't nobody's treasure
And I know it isn't ladylike
To do what I've done tonight

Wake up, I've got news for you
Nobody's knocking at your door
Nobody's gonna pull you through
Nobody needs you any more
Nobody's knocking at your door

Boy, I went around the bend
Thought I'd made a life-long friend
Imagine my surprise when I looked into your eyes
And I saw the kind of friends you meant

I think I'm gonna take the cure
I'm going on the wagon for sure
I may feel a fool for a Sunday or two
But it's better than a Sunday with you
And I know it isn't ladylike
To do what I've done tonight

Wake up, I've got news for you
Nobody's knocking at your door
Nobody's gonna pull you through
Nobody needs you any more
Nobody's knocking at your door

    If you like this then check out "I Would Like to Dance." Very happy tune. I've been a big fan since the 60's. She was or is one of the first to sing about a black and white couple.

    I found this on a reel to reel tape. I was wondering who it was. Googled the lyrics... Bam!
