I sat down and wrote this letter
Since you'd gone and I was free
I have so little time to spare now
I make out like Casanova
Signed my name as if I meant it
The letter had improved my mood
But halfway home I changed my tune
The mirror caught my eye
Big lie small world
I had to intercept that letter
I raced to catch the postman's van
I miss the bus I miss the train
Big dog chased me down the street
Feeling sorry for myself
I walked across the city
Big lie small world
The place you live looks opulent
Than our cozy little room
The landlord says you're out of town
The hour was getting late
Here's the postman with my letter
Give that thing to me
Begging doesn't do the trick
And then who comes upon the scene
I hit the postman, hit your lover
The police arrived in time for tea
I can only curse my fate
It hasn't been the best of days
Big lie small world
