He Married a Woman Twenty Years His Junior

His eyes are filled with whiskey fumes and tears

He sits beside the phone and waits its ring

His wife has left him for another man

But she still loves him yes he’s sure of that

 

His wife has left him for another man

She’s taken all the furniture she liked

At first he felt a sense of great relief

But now the house feels empty cold and bleak

 

He sits beside the phone and waits its ring

New boyfriend left for Washington this week

Perhaps she’ll still call in they’ll have a drink

Perhaps she’ll come back home to him he thinks

 

Yes she still loves him, he’s quite sure of that

Why only yesterday she called him up

She’s taken all the furniture she liked

Perhaps there’s one small thing that she forgot

 

Eyes filled with whiskey fumes he sits and waits

Perhaps she’ll call him up today he thinks

And then the phone rings and she’s on the line

There are a few small things she’s left behind

 

Perhaps she’ll still come back to him he thinks

She’s still in love with him he’s sure of that

She’ll come to fetch her things and they’ll embrace

They’ll have a drink and talk about mistakes

 

His wife has left him for another man

And there’s a suitcase that she left behind

She’ll come to fetch her things he thinks, embrace

Get it delivered quickly she requests

 

He sits beside the phone and waits its ring

He’s sixty five and feels like seventeen

His wife has left him for a younger man

His eyes are filled with whiskey fumes and tears
