  • Echoes of reggae comin' through my bedroom wall
    Havin' a party up next door but I'm sittin' here all alone
    Two lovers in the bedroom and the other starts to shout
    All I got is this blank stare and that don't carry no clout at all

    Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby Soho

    He's singin and she's there to lend a hand
    He's seen his name on the marquee but she will never understand
    Once again he's leavin' and she's there with a tear in her eye
    Embraces with a warm gesture it's time, time to say goodbye

    Ruby's heart ain't beatin' 'cause she knows the feelin' is gone
    She's not the only one who knew there's somethin' wrong
    Her lover's in the distance as she wipes a tear from her eye
    Ruby's fading out, she disappears, it's time, time to say goodbye
