  • From inside a phone booth
    And it began to astound me
    I tried to keep my couth
    I said it must be Sunday
    'Cause ev'rybody's tellin' the truth
    And then again it might be Monday
    Yeah it might be Monday
    'Cause ev'rybody's drinkin' vermouth
    She lent her hand
    At the kissing stand
    But she gave 'em away for free
    With an acid joke and a box of smoke
    She can barely see
    She drives her bus at dusk
    With headlights off
    And headphones up
    And for tomorrow
    She has planned a shopping spree
    There's a man who loved so hard
    He was like a billboard grin
    He toasted life and beauty
    'Til his head began to spin
    He pressed his cheek
    On rainwashed streets
    And he wept into his gin
    And he came back as himself again
    December thirty-first
    Is the very worst time of the year
    You got to think of people
    That you like enough
    To share your beer
    Just when you're having fun
    It's January one
    And you wait for explanations
    To appear
