BETWEEN THE LINES

Today I got a letter from you-
a letter saying goodbye.
It was a real nice letter it's true.
Didn't even make me cry.
Said that you were needing some time,
to go and sort out your head.
You wished me well. You'd keep me in mind.
That's what the letter said.

Guess what,Baby, you'll be surprised,
when I tell you'thanks for the time'.
I've got some special kind of eyes.
They can read between lines.
That was a real nice letter from you -
real nice the way it was said.
That is - the first time I read it through.
The second time, here's how it read.

Chorus
'Now that I've worked on you for awhile.
I'll go wait for the rain.
I'll drift away till you lose your smile.
Then I'll come yanking your chain.
When you've spent awhile thinking it through,
caught in tormented mind;
when you're weary, and lost, and feeling blue,
I'll come tugging your line.'

Guess what,Baby, you'll be surprised,
when I tell you 'thanks for the time'.
I've got some special kind of eyes.
They can read between lines.
That was a real nice letter from you,
to set me up on the shelf,
but I'll tell you this, and I know it's true,
it was written by the Devil himself !

Chorus
Guess who's got better things to do,
than sit on the shelf and whine !
Don't need friends who can't speak true !
I'm pulling in my line.
Bye-bye, Baby, don't expect sighs !
Thanks for the warning in time !
Thanks to the Lord, Who gave me eyes
able to read between lines !
