Lyrics: (my own interpretation, NOT perfect!)
(Verse): Bent shyly, hundreds of miles away my bed is warm it waits for me. Lost in Chicago, no money in my pocket and the rain on my face.
(Chorus): And carry on they say to me. And carry on they saaayyyyyy.
(Verse): The Elroys lost my flyer 'till they picked up the show and wouldn't you know that, No-one can tell me, and even if they do well I don't understand, no.
(Verse): Drunk in Belmont, she laughs at something in a doughnut shop, well I like her smile, yeah. Coffee sounds good, but that kiss has me changing my mind, no.
(Bridge): You don't know nobody, no but still they go on and I know it's so blind.
End on a B, bass does the outro.
