Thank You Much


 

Don’t be knockin’ on my door;

            The little girl you knew don’t live here anymore.

Don’t be callin’ on my ‘phone;

            The one you want,
she’s long gone.

 

She’s out from dusk till dawn

            Dancin’ on tables, getting’ it on.

She found herself a brand new world.

            I found myself,
I’m a brand new girl.

 

Don’t be tellin’ me how you care,

            If you did, you’d still be here.

Don’t you need to be free?

            Thank you much,
 it’s the life for me.

 

No, I don’t want to keep in touch.

            I gotta go now, but I thank you much.

No, I don’t want to keep in touch.

            I gotta go now, but I
 thank you much.

 

 

Don’t be thinkin’ it makes me glad

            To hear your life’s turned out so bad.

Don’t be thinkin’ you’ll hear me say,

            I hope you live
 to regret the day.

 

The day you went out that door

            You said you didn’t need me anymore.

You stole my sleep for a night or two

            But I want you to know,
I’m over you.

 

Don’t be thinkin’ you’ll hear it from me

            How I miss your company.

Don’t be thinkin’ you’ll hear me complain.

            I told you once,
but I’ll tell you again.

 

No, I don’t want to keep in touch.

            I gotta go now, but I thank you much.

No, I don’t want to keep in touch.

            I gotta go now, but I
thank you much.

Dropped by for a listen, and you have an interesting bluesy folk sound going for you. Nothing quite like being dismissed by a former lover.

A poetic song with a lyrical feel that leaves little doubt that the "thrill is gone". Very nice.

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
