Six O Clock

Lovin' Spoonful

         v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v

        There's something special 'bout six o'clock
        In the morning when it's still too early to knock

        And the dusky light shines down on the block
        And reflects up and down on the hands of the clock

Fsus2 (as above, 4X; alarm clock enters 3rd time)
Six o'clock, six o'clock

Verse 1:

        A few hours ago she was standing here
        Just watching the stars in our eyes and the lights as the tights
        And I could feel I could say what I want
        That I could nudge her and call her my   confidante
        But now I'm all alone with just my shadow in front
Fsus2/G (2 bars)
At six o'clock, six o'clock

Verse 2:

I went home and found that time to sleep was rare
Just watching my eyelids, knowing my brain bids the night not
to care
I got up and got scufflin' around
But somehow it just wasn't the same happy town
And the bells didn't ring with the same happy sound
At six o'clock, six o'clock


           If I go back where we parted
           Could I ever feel like that again
           Guess I'll just have to wait 'til tomorrow
          But what can I  do 'til then

Verse 3:

Guess I'll go back home and just wait until dawn
Yes, I had to learn going back where we were wouldn't help at all
And I wish my head had been working right
We'd have gone for coffee and talked all night
And now I'm back alone, bein' twisted up tight
Six o'clock, six o'clock


        Now I'm back alone     
        Yes, now I'm back alone      
        I'm back alone
