On Monday I wished that it was Tuesday night
So I could wish for the weekend to come
On Tuesday I wished that the night would pass
So I could call you on the phone

Now a man can spend a lot of time
Wondering what was on Jack Ruby's mind
And time is all I have without you here

Wednesday when you hung up
It was as much as I could do
Stop from wishing Thursday
Would pass so quickly too

They're out there making history
In the Lenin Shipyards today
And here I am in the Hammersmith Hotel
Wishing the days away

There's always room for one more soul
Down in the Human Zoo
Don't want you to come here though
I want to come home to you

Somebody's knocking at the door
It's later than I think
It's time to put on these stinking clothes
And get out there and stink

Friday I wished that there was something more
To be seen in the letters you sent
On Saturday I wished it was Sunday
Oh, will this torment ever end?

Sometimes I take a notion
To put a torch to the tools of my trade
Here I am in the Hammersmith Hotel
Wishing the days away
Here I am in the Hammersmith Hotel
Wishing the days away
