Lyrics

    I had nothing to do on this hot afternoon
    But to settle down and write you a line
    I've been meaning to phone you, but from Minnesota
    Hell it's been a very long time

    You wear it well
    A little old fashioned but that's all right

    Well, I suppose you're thinking I bet he's sinking
    Or he wouldn't get in touch with me
    Oh, I ain't begging or losing my head
    I sure do want you to know

    That you wear it well
    There ain't a lady in the land so fine, oh my

    Remember them basement parties, your brother's karate
    The all day rock 'n' roll shows
    Their homesick blues and the radical views
    Haven't left a mark on you

    You wear it well
    A little out of time but I don't mind

    But I ain't forgetting that you were once mine
    But I blew it without even tryin'
    Now I'm eatin' my heart out
    Tryin' to get a letter through

    Since you've been gone it's hard to carry on
    I'm gonna write about the birthday gown that I bought in town
    When you sat down and cried on the stairs
    You knew it didn't cost the earth, but for what it's worth
    You made me feel a millionaire

    And you wear it well
    Madame Onassis got nothing on you, no, no

    Anyway, my coffee's cold and I'm getting told
    That I gotta get back to work
    So when the sun goes low and you're home all alone
    Think of me and try not to laugh

    And I wear it well
    I don't object if you call Collect

    'Cos I ain't forgetting that you were once mine
    But I blew it without even tryin'
    Now I'm eatin' my heart out
    Tryin' to get back to you

    I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
    Oh, yeah

    After all the years I hope it's the same address
    Since you've been gone it's hard to carry on, oh no, oh no
