The carmichaels by Al Stewart


Mr Carmichael says that he loves his wife, I believe he does Gives her everything that a man can give But Mr Carmichael beggars himself on the altar of his love And you can tell him that that's not the way to liveAnd oh how the wind has blown The leaves from the linden tree And oh when the night grows free Why does Mrs Carmichael come to me?Mrs Carmichael rises at ten, takes her timeIs at her ease Drinking coffee in slippers and negligee Opens the door and the milkman brings her dreams, there's no-one sees Except the statue of Venus and she won't sayAnd oh how the wind has blown The leaves from the linden tree And oh when the night grows free Why does Mrs Carmichael come to me?Oh Mr Carmichael, captain and star of his office billiards team Smiles to greet the applause as his ball goes in Hurrying back, bringing his victory home but there's no-one here And supper waits on the table inside a tinAnd oh how the linden leaves Lie tossed as the night wind blows And struck in his silent pose Mr Carmichael weeps and there's no-one knows
