Young Girl Blues Lyrics

Artist: Donovan


YOUNG GIRL BLUES
Donovan


It's Saturday night, it feels like a Sunday in some ways
If you had any sense, you'd maybe go away for a few days
Be that as it may, you can only say you are lonely
You are but a young girl working your way through the
phonies

Cafe on, milk gone, such a sad light and fading.
Yourself you touch, but not too much. You hear it's
degrading.

The flowers on your stockings wilting away in the midnight
The book you are reading is someone's opinion of moonlight
Your skin is so white, you'd like maybe to go to bed soon
Just closing your eyes if you're to rise up before noon

High heels, car wheels, all the losers are groovin'
Your dream, strange scene, images are movin'

Your friends they are making a pop star or two every evening

You know that scene backwards, they can't see the patterns
they're weaving
Your friends they're all models but you soon got over that
one
You sit in your one room a little brought down in London

Cafe on, milk gone, such a sad light and fading.
Yourself you touch, but not too much. You hear it's
degrading.

It's Saturday night, it feels like a Sunday in some ways
If you had any sense, you'd maybe go away for a few days
Be that as it may, you can only say you are lonely
You are but a young girl working your way through the
phonies

it's not "cafe on", it's "coffee on"

Sorry Brick It is "cafe on"
listen to the song, also in the line "The book you are reading is someone's opinion" its "one man's opinion"

uh...no, he's right. It's "coffee's on, milk gone"...cafe on doesn't make any sense.
Also, it's "certain people out there tell you it's degrading". But you are right it is "one man's opinion of moonlight".

noo, it is ''cafe on'' not coffee on, try listening to it carefully, the two don't sound alike at all mate.
