Young Girl Blues

Music and lyrics by Donovan P. Leitch


It's Saturday night
It feels like a Sunday in some ways
If you had any sense
You'd maybe go away for a few days
Be that as it may
You can only say you were lonely
You are but a young girl
Working your way through the phoneys

Cafe on, milk gone
Such a sad light unfading
Yourself you touch
But not too much
You hear it's degrading

The flowers on your stockings
Wilting away in the midnight
The book you are reading
Is one man's opinion of moonlight
Your skin is so white
You'd like maybe to go to bed soon
Just closing your eyes
If you're to rise up before noon

High heels, car wheels
All the losers are grooving
Your dream, strange scene
Images are moving

Your friends they are making
A pop star or two every evening
You know that scene backwards
They can't see the patterns they're weaving
Your friends they're all models
But you soon got over that one
You sit in your one room
A little brought down in London

Cafe on, milk gone
Such a sad light unfading
Yourself you touch
But not too much
You've heard it's degrading

A Saturday night
It feels like a Sunday in some ways
If you had any sense
You'd maybe go away for a few days
Be that as it may
You can only say you were lonely
You are but a young girl
And you're working your way through the phoneys

Young Girl Blues (Donovan In Concert Version)

Music and lyrics by Donovan P. Leitch


Thank you

It's Saturday night
It feels like a Sunday in some ways
If you had any sense
You'd maybe go away for a few days
Be that as it may
You can only say you were lonely
You are but a young girl
Working your way through the phoneys

Cafe on, milk gone
Such a sad light unfading
Yourself you touch
But not too much
Certain people tell you it's degrading

The flowers on your stockings
They're wilting away in the midnight
The book you are reading
Is one man's opinion of moonlight
Your skin is so white
You'd like maybe to go to bed soon
Just closing your eyes
If you're to rise up before noon

High heels, all those car wheels
All the losers are grooving
Your dream, such a strange scene
Images are moving

Your friends they are making
A pop star or two or three every evening
Well, you know that scene backwards
They just can't see the patterns they're weaving
Those friends are all models
But you soon got over that one
And you sit in your one room
A little brought down in London

Cafe on, milk gone
Such a sad light unfading
Yourself you touch
But not too much
Certain people out there thell you it's degrading

No, no, no, no, no, no...

It's Saturday night
Feels like a Sunday in some ways
If you had any sense
You'd maybe go away for a few days
Be that as it may
You can only say you were lonely
Well, you are but one young girl
Working your way through the phoneys

Young Girl Blues (Rising Version)

Music and lyrics by Donovan P. Leitch


It's Saturday night
It feels like a Sunday in some ways
If you had any sense
You'd maybe go away for a few days
Be that as it may
You can only say you are lonely
You are but a young girl
And you're working your way through the phoneys

Cafe on, all the milk's gone
Such a sad light unfading
Yourself you touch
But not too much
You've heard it's degrading

High heels, all those car wheels
All the losers are grooving
Your dream, such a strange scene
Images are moving

You put the cafe on, and all the milk's gone
Such a sad light unfading
Yourself you touch
But not too much
Certain people tell you it's degrading

It's Saturday night
It feels like a Sunday in some ways
If you had any sense
You would maybe go away for a few days
Be that as it may
You can only say you're lonely
You are but a young girl
And you're working your way through the phoneys

Nice, thank you. Thanks very much, thank you, nice...
