I saw your hat,
On the street,
Today,
And I wondered,
Would you go for me
Or go the other way?

I heard your voice,
In the street,
Today,
And I wondered,
Would you talk of work,
Or would you talk of play?

I waited at the bus stop,
For you to catch up to me,
But You Went The Other Way.

I saw your picture,
In the paper,
Today,
And I wondered,
What the caption
Beneath it might say.

I saw your fingers,
Throw the ring
away,
And I wondered,
What your momma
would say.

'Cause she's one for a,
Platitude.
She,
Likes to keep a good,
Attitude.
She,
leaves a lot of,
Latitude for play.
She's good with a,
Quick cliche'.
Her
Smilin' face is a sweet bouquet.
I
wonder if she knows,
You Went The Other Way.

I bought a pistol,
At the pawn shop today.
I wonder if I'll use it,
Or just put the damned thing away.
If I'm going to be lonely,
I'll be lonely
alone.
And I wonder,
Will I have to pay?

It's not just a matter,
Of melting hearts of stone,
And I wonder,
Can I rock and roll it,
Can I rock and roll it away?
I waited at the bus stop,
For you to catch up with me,
But You Went The Other Way.

I saw your sister,
On the street,
Today,
And I wondered,
Would she go for me,
Or go the other way?
She called me 'Mister,'
And asked me to play,
And I wondered,
What her mother would say.

'Cause she's one for a,
Platitude. She
Likes to keep a good
Attitude. She
Leaves a lot of
Latitude for play.
She's good in her
cliques and cliches. Her
smilin' face is a
Sweet bouquet. I
wonder if she knows,
You Went The Other Way.

I bought a pistol,
At the pawn shop today.
I wonder if I'll use it,
I threw the damned thing away.
If I'm going to be lonely,
I'll be lonely alone,
And I wonder,
Will I have to pay?

It's not just a matter,
Of melting hearts of stone,
And I wonder,
Can I rock and roll it,
Can I rock and roll it away?
I waited at the bus stop,
For you to catch up with me,
But You Went The Other Way.
