I had nothing to do on this hot afternoon
But to settle down and write you a line
I've been meaning to phone you, but from Minnesota
Hell it's been a very long time

You wear it well
A little old fashioned but that's all right

Well, I suppose you're thinking I bet he's sinking
Or he wouldn't get in touch with me
Oh, I ain't begging or losing my head
I sure do want you to know

That you wear it well
There ain't a lady in the land so fine, oh my

Remember them basement parties, your brother's karate
The all day rock 'n' roll shows
Their homesick blues and the radical views
Haven't left a mark on you

You wear it well
A little out of time but I don't mind

But I ain't forgetting that you were once mine
But I blew it without even tryin'
Now I'm eatin' my heart out
Tryin' to get a letter through

Since you've been gone it's hard to carry on
I'm gonna write about the birthday gown that I bought in town
When you sat down and cried on the stairs
You knew it didn't cost the earth, but for what it's worth
You made me feel a millionaire

And you wear it well
Madame Onassis got nothing on you, no, no

Anyway, my coffee's cold and I'm getting told
That I gotta get back to work
So when the sun goes low and you're home all alone
Think of me and try not to laugh

And I wear it well
I don't object if you call Collect

'Cos I ain't forgetting that you were once mine
But I blew it without even tryin'
Now I'm eatin' my heart out
Tryin' to get back to you

I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
Oh, yeah

After all the years I hope it's the same address
Since you've been gone it's hard to carry on, oh no, oh no
