You Wear It Well Lyrics 

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 thats alright

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 no lady in the land so fine

Remember them basement parties - your brother's karate
The all day rock and roll shows
Them homesick blues - and 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 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 did not 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

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
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
