All day I'm doing fine
'Cause there are things to pass the time
Smoke a cig and drink some tea
Watch a program on TV

I just don't care where you are now
'Cause I'm sorted out and how
I've got it all set up you see
But when I close my eyes it happens to me

You're a nightmare and you've made it all wrong
You're a nightmare to me, oh, oh
You're a nightmare, oh and I just can't see
Why you should keep on happening to me, oh, yeah

Well, it stopped some time in May
Whilst you were still away
Was I in bed or on a bus
Doing something pathetically ridiculous?

I never noticed it at first
But when you came back it got worse
It's the idea of you, you see
When I close my eyes it happens to me

Oh, you're a nightmare and you've got it all wrong
You're a nightmare to me, oh, oh
You're a nightmare and I just can't see
Why you should keep on happening to me

You're a nightmare and you've got it all wrong
You're a nightmare to me, oh, oh
You're a nightmare and I just can't see
Why you should keep on happening, happening to me, oh, oh

And there were hotel bedroom birthdays
Asleep in factory hallway, I remember always, yeah
There were hotel bedroom birthdays
And sleep in factory hallway, I remember always

Why do you keep on hanging 'round
Oh, can't you see it gets me down?
'Cause when I look at you I see
Somebody I just don't want to be

Oh, oh, you're a nightmare and you've got it all wrong
You're a nightmare to me, oh, oh
You're a nightmare and I just can't see
Why you should keep on happening to me

You're a nightmare and you've got it all wrong
Yeah, you're a nightmare to me, oh, oh
You're a nightmare, oh and I just can't see
Oh, why, why you should keep on happening to me

You're a nightmare and you've got it all wrong
Oh, you're a nightmare to me, oh, oh
You're a nightmare, oh and I just can't see
Why you're, why you're, you're always hanging around

You're always hanging around
You're always hanging around
You're always hanging around
You're always hanging around
Always hanging around
You're always hanging around
