Wishing The Days Away  - Billy Bragg

    On Monday I wished that 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 its time to put on these stinking clothes
    And get out there and stink

    On Friday I wished that there was something more
    To be seen in the letters you send
    On Saturday I wished that it was Sunday
    Oh will this torment ever end
    Sometimes I take a notion to put a torch
    To the tools of my trade
    Here I am in the Hammersmith Hotel
    Wishing the days away.
