You're so late getting home from the office
Did you miss your train?
Were you caught in the rain?
No, don't bother to explain

Can I fix you a quick martini?
As a matter of fact I'll have one with you
For to tell you the truth
I've had quite a day too

Guess who I saw today, my dear?
I went in town to shop around for something new
And thought I'd stop and have a bite
When I was through

I looked around for someplace near
And it occurred to me where I had parked the car
There was a most attractive French cafe and bar
It really wasn't very far

The waiter showed me to a dark, secluded corner
And as my eyes became accustomed to the gloom
I saw two people at the bar who were so in love
That even I could spot it clear across the room

Guess who I saw today, my dear?
I've never been so shocked before
I headed blindly for the door
They didn't see me passing through
Guess who I saw today?
Guess who I saw today?
Guess who I saw today?
I saw you!
