Late in the night
And it followed behind me
I would hold my bags
While you held my gaze
A tune was troubling me

Ooh hoo hoo
Sign on the line
A request for the guest to show
But the notes I wrote
Were not the notes I left
A tune was troubling me

Down to the guest room
I’ll be gone here tomorrow
She’s humming a tune
So sophis-ti-ca-ted
As she points to my room

She switches the light on
I’m electric beside her
She cuts to the bone
So sophis-ti-ca-ted
Then she’s gone from the room

Ooh I sit like a stone
Gazing out of the window
Got a pen in hand
I’m searching for the song that
Reminds me of you

Oh, how it’s changed
With the note from the stranger
He left his soul
A little ink on paper
For the jazz boy to see

Down to the bedroom
Need a room ’til tomorrow
The sweet entrepreneur
So sophis-ti-ca-ted
She’s the light in the room

She switches the light on
I’m electric beside her
She cuts to the bone
So sophis-ti-ca-ted
Then she’s gone from the room

I’m down in the bedroom
And I’m lost in tomorrow
The sweet entrepreneur
So sophis-ti-ca-ted
Then she’s gone from the room

She switches the light on
I’m electric beside her
She cuts to the bone
So sophis-ti-ca-ted
Then she’s gone from the room
