Lyrics

[Verse 1] I had nothing to do on this hot afternoon But to settle down and write you a line I've been meaning to phone you but from Minnesota Hell, it's been a very long time [Refrain] You wear it well A little old-fashioned but that's all right [Verse 2] Well, I suppose you're thinking, "I bet he's sinking Or he wouldn't get in touch with me" Oh, I ain't begging or losing my head I sure do want you to know [Refrain] That you wear it well There ain't a lady in the land so fine, oh, my [Verse 3] Remember them basement parties, your brother's karate The all day rock and roll shows Them homesick blues and radical views Haven't left a mark on you [Refrain] You wear it well A little out of time but I don't mind [Bridge] But I ain't forgetting that you were once mine But I blew it without even tryin' Now I'm eatin' my heart out Tryin' to get a letter through [Verse 4] Since you've been gone it's hard to carry on I'm gonna write about the birthday gown that I bought in town When you sat down and cried on the stairs You knew it didn't cost the earth, but for what it's worth You made me feel a millionaire [Refrain] And you wear it well Madame Onassis got nothing on you, no, no [Verse 5] Anyway, my coffee's cold and I'm getting told That I gotta get back to work So when the sun goes low and you're home all alone Think of me and try not to laugh [Refrain] And I wear it well I don't object if you call collect [Bridge] 'Cause I ain't forgetting that you were once mine But I blew it without even tryin' Now I'm eatin' my heart out Tryin' to get back to you [Outro] I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you Oh, yeah After all the years I hope it's the same address Since you've been gone it's hard to carry on
