Someone woke me up this morning and I lit a cigarette
Found myself when I stopped yawning, started getting myself dressed
Then I felt that I had a dream, I remembered the things that I'd seen
I could still hear the things you said from that bad dream in my head

It was a sad day, bad day
Sad day, bad day

So I called you on the phone and your friend said "She's not home"
So I told her where I'd be at and that you should call me back
Then I looked at the morning mail, I was not even expecting a bill
Your letter started "Dear" and it left me with these tears

Think of the times that we had rows but we patched them up somehow
Think of the times I tried to go but you screamed and told me no
There is only one thing in this world that I can't understand, that's a girl
I keep reading the things you said like a bad dream in my head

Oh what a sad, sad, old day
A sad, old day, it was a sad, old day
A sad, old day, it was a bad, old day
Sad, old day, a bad, old day

If there is one awful thing in this world that I can't understand, that's a girl

It was a sad, sad old day
Sad old day, it was a sad, old day
