“This Just Doesn’t Seem to Be My Day” Lyrics

I guess I should have stayed in bed
My pillow wrapped around my head
Instead of waking up to find
A nightmare of a different kind
She went away
This just doesn’t seem to be my day

She didn’t have to say a lot
Her pretty eyes revealed the plot
’Twas someone else she wanted more
And so I walked her to the door
What could I say?
This just doesn’t seem to be my day

My, oh my
How sad am I
How I wish she would have stayed
This just doesn’t seem to be my day

My whole world is upside down
She turned my smile into a frown
It’s such a pity the shape I’m in
I must get on my feet again
Can’t stay this way
This just doesn’t seem to be my day

[break]

My, oh my (Oh my, oh my, oh my)
How sad am I (How sad am I)
How I wish she would have stayed (I wish she would have stayed)
This just doesn’t seem to be my day

I guess I should have stayed in bed
My pillow wrapped around my head
Instead of waking up to find
A nightmare of a different kind
She went away
This just doesn’t seem to be my day
