  • Met him on a Monday
    And he said he loved me so
    Walked me to my door
    Before I knew it to my living room

    I thought there was no need for worry
    When he took me in his arms
    Drank some whisky
    Hung his coat upon the stand

    That's when the music started
    I heard the light switch click
    I stumbled on a lost shoe
    The fever's starting
    This man was getting hot
    I got no strength to make him stop
    I guess it's too late
    But I'll know next time
    To mix some water with the wine

    The sun came pouring in at
    Five upon my face
    I felt the taste of last night's love
    Upon my lips
    I wasn't sure if I had dreampt it
    Or had not
    But there across the pillow
    Was the face I had forgot

    That's when he said he loved me
    Could be the truth this time
    He put his arms about me

    Fever's starting
    This man was getting hot
    I got no strength to make him stop
    I guess it's too late
    But I'll know next time
    To mix some water with the wine Writer/s: JOAN ARMATRADING
