It Never Entered My Mind


I don’t care if there’s powder on my nose
I don’t care if my hairdo is in place
I’ve lost the very meaning of repose
I never put a mud pack on my face
Oh, who’d have thought that I’d walk in a daze
Now I never go to shows at night
But just to matinees,
Now I see the show and home I go.


Once I laughed when I heard you saying
That I’d be playing solitair
Uneasy in my easy chair
It never entered my mind.

Once you told me I was mistaken
That I’d awaken with the sun
And order orange juice for one
It never entered my mind.

You have what I lack myself
And now I even have to scratch my back, myself

Once you warned me
That if you scorned me
I’d sing the maiden prayer again
And wish that you were there again
To get into my hair again
It never entered my mind.
