Boy, I Really Tied One On

Janis Ian

* Also recorded by Esther Philips

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, nyah nyah
Nobody's knocking at your door
Wake up, I've got news for you
Nobody's knocking at your door
