Wednesday Week Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

The movies save on conversation
And the TV saves on sight
We met in a head-on collision
So I would say our chances would be slight

You can lead and I will follow
See us dancing cheek to cheek
You'll remember me tomorrow
But you won't give a damn by Wednesday week

Say you love me until you do so
Joso singing just like Caruso
Three little words roll off your tongue
Somehow your face just doesn't look so young

You say you want to strike a bargain
Now, there is no need to speak
You say you want to learn the jargon
But you won't give a damn by Wednesday week

You start acting like a zombie
Someone wants your piece of cake
You think you want to jump upon me
But you won't give a damn by Wednesday week

Oh, what a letdown when the battle was finally won
One little breakdown and then it was over and done
I wish I had your confidence, it's love and not coincidence
Do you say these words to everyone?

You're fantastic, you're terrific
Your excellence is almost scientific
You took the words out of my mouth
You put the tongue into my cheek

But I'd better lose my memory
By Wednesday week, Wednesday week
Wednesday week, Wednesday week
