Wishing The Days Away Lyrics by Billy Bragg 



Wishing The Days Away by Billy Bragg


On monday I wished it was tuesday night
So I could wish for the weekend to come
On tuesday I wished that the night would pass
So I could call you on the phone
Now a man can spend a lot of time
Wondering what was on jack ruby's mind
And time is all I have without you here

On wednesday when you hung up
It was as much as I could do
To stop from wishing thursday
Would pass so quickly too
They're out there making history
In the lenin shipyards today
And here I am in the hammersmith hotel
Wishing the days away

There's always room for one more soul
Down in the human zoo
I don't want you to come here though
I want to come home to you
Somebody's knocking at the door
Its later than I think
And it's time to put on these stinking clothes
And get out there and stink

On friday I wished there was something more
To be seen in the letters you send
On saturday I wished it was sunday
Oh will this torment ever end
Sometimes I get a notion to put a torch
To the tools of my trade
Here I am in the hammersmith hotel
Wishing the days away
