2nd September 1972


You Wear It Well - Rod Stewart


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 that's all right

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 a lady in the land so fine, oh my

Remember those basement parties, your brother's karate
The all day rock 'n' roll shows
Them homesick blues and the 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've 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 didn't cost the earth, but for what it's worth
You make me feel a millionaire and you wear it well
Madame Onassis got nothing on you, no no

and when 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'll wear it well
I don't object if you call collect
'cos 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 back to you

I love ya, I love ya, I love ya, I love ya

After all this it's still the same address
Since you've been gone it's hard to carry on
