I MISSED JULY


I don't know why
I missed July

It started this morning
She went to St. Louis
The car was stolen and
It was found in Missouri
I stayed at home so that
The calls would be answered
I was afraid that the
Telephone company would call
Was it already fall?

The phone rang, I got it
The cord was all knotted
I said to hold on, I
Let the receiver spin
The person on the line
Was yelling he had no more dimes

I missed July
I don't know why
I missed July

I missed July
I don't know why
I missed July

He said the car was destroyed
Independence Day
I began to panic
What was this person saying?
St. Louis, why don't you
Leave me alone, give back my car?

I don't know why
I missed July
I don't know why
I missed July
And it's August now

We bought that Chevrolet a year ago
We fell in love at the drive-in movie show
And now they burned it up last month
I know, I know, I know

I know I will have a
Nervous breakdown any minute, and
What is the matter with people today?
I missed you in July
And now you've left forever
I missed you in July
