The Back Room (Van Morrison)

In the back room (in the back room) In the back room (in the back room) I waited for you (waited for you) Ya waited for me (waited for me) Rain came down, pitter-pat Say, 'What'd you think, it's raining outside?' You said, "So what" You turned the record player on Had a smoke, stood up Walked across to the john In a cloud of mist, couldn't resist A kitty stepped into the hall An' she rapped the door Found the key in the letter box She turned the door Walked into the room And said, 'What's goin' on?' 'I just got back from down the road I gotta couple a-bottles a-wine Somethin' to turn you on' What-a ya think of that? (In the back room) (In the back room) I said, 'Sit down cat, pull up a seat You're soakin' wet' Take off your coat n' hat Wipe your feet on the mat In the back room (in the back room) In the back room (in the back room) I waited for you (waited for you) Ya waited for me (waited for me) I said, 'What time is it, Charlie Where did we go all day?" We seem to get no where and do nothin' But sit lookin' at each other He said, 'I know' 'I been doin' the same thing for weeks' I look at the clock And all of a sudden I'm hypnotized It speaks to me, it goes 'Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock' Ah-huh The kitty said 'I don't know what you guys do But I been workin' so hard, lately That I can just only just fall asleep in bed' So he played some more sounds And grooved awhile Somebody brought out some Cherry wine, cherry wine And we talked about what was goin' on In the music world, and other things A-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha The rain outside came down Like it came never before Down it came, down it came, rain rain rain And I said 'Baby what time is it, what time is it 'Tell me, what time is it? 'A-four-thirty' So I peeked 'round the corner, the blind An' there ya go 'There's another girl that's comin' home from school Lookin' so cool, just learned her A's to Z's And said, 'Hey man, don't look funny All the little girls comin' home from school And they're sittin', talkin' and drinkin' And all them other funny things A-ha-ha And Charlie said to me 'Ya know what?' I said, 'What?' He said, "Man, you gotta go out there 'An do somethin' for yourself' 'Ya feel like ya want to make it Or else you gonna be sittin' 'round here Like, nothin' I said, "You're right' I said "You're so right!' He said 'I know' ah-ha I said, 'Do ya?' Said, 'You know, you're cuttin' records 'Cuttin' records right You came through that An', they get through all the time You're gonna be out on the road 'Oh, out in on back street, man On the, on the, highway An' the colors are gonna run All of a sudden, don't ya feel sick? The next gig, you gotta make it 'I said, 'Yeah, I feel sick' I said, 'Yeah, ya know I can't stay here All the time, as much as I'd like to But I just learn about all day and all night An' dig sounds, and go down to the river And once the artists go through the motions Gotta do my thing Aah-ah (in the back room) Aah-ah Gotta do my thing (in the back room) In the back room (in the back room) In the back room (in the back room)
