Dancing by the jukebox
With a lover in her head
It was closing time
She downed my drink
And I knew chivalry was dead
When she said - “Your place or mine?”

Poured me a glass
Of whiskey neat
Make yourself at home
Put up your feet
Oh be my guest
I'm the perfect host
Until I leave you like a gypsy
Until I haunt you like a ghost
Take what you need
And stay the night
But you've a heavy heart
And I always travel light

In the morning
With no make-up
An elegant young dame
Without rouge or heels
She said I wear this mask
To cover up the shame
That the light reveals

Sat on the curb
People threw me change
I felt disturbed
And strange

Head to a bar
Won’t last the night
I've a heavy heart
And she always travels light
And there she is
Old comatose
To the queen of the barflies
All the drunks
They raise a toast
