Six O’Clock Lyrics By The Lovin Spoonful

    there’s something special about six o’clock
    in the mornin’ when it’s still too early to knock
    and the dusty light shines down on the block
    and reflects up and down on the hands of the clock
    six o’clock six o’clock

    a few hours ago she was standin’ here
    just watchin’ the stars in our eyes and the lights as uptights disappear
    and i could feel i could say what i want
    that i could nudge her and call her my confidante
    and now i’m back alone with just my shadow in front
    at six o’clock six o’clock

    i went home and found that tryin’ to sleep was a laugh
    just watchin’ my eyelids knowin’ my brain bids the night not to pass
    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 be like that again
    guess i’ll just have to wait ’til tomorrow
    but what can i do ’til then

    guess i’ll go back home and just wait until dawn
    guess i had to learn goin’ back where we were wouldn’t help at all
    and i wish my head had been workin’ right
    we’d have gone for coffee and talked all night
    but now i’m back alone feelin’ twisted up tight
    six o’clock six o’clock

    now i’m back alone
    yes now i’m back alone
    i’m back alone
