See her candle
Waver in the window of her summer night
Lying on the breeze
She tries to fall asleep

Flights of fancy
Dancing through her memories like Arabian Nights
He is riding on his wings of fire
And flies away

She can still hear him say
If you'll be wise
If you'll be smart
Don't let a traveling man take your heart

Take my advice
Don't let it start
You'll think you're different from the rest
You'll try to do your part
Until he breaks your heart

Lunch for the lonely
Looking at picture postcards of someone else's scene
Somehow they don't seem real
The sea's too green

Somebody calls her
Giving out information
About the boy on the moon
Suddenly it's all too much
To be told
What she already knows

If you'll be wise
If you'll be smart
Don't let a traveling man take your heart
Take my advice
Don't let it start
Because you've been told too many times


If you'll be wise
If you'll be smart
Don't let a traveling man take your heart
Take my advice
Don't let it start
Because you've been told too many times

If you'll be wise
If you'll be smart
Don't let a traveling man take your heart
Take my advice
Don't let it start
Because when he comes and needs a friend
He'll do it all again

Better be smart
He's breaking your heart
Find you another lover
Better be wise
And open your eyes
This time
