She wakes up from a dream, checks the mirror for reality
She says "Come on girl, it's all in a day's work"
Gets herself dressed just in time, disappears on the 8:05
Oh the whistle blows and it's all in a day's work
'Til she calls it a day

Oh she smiles as he glances up from the swimsuit issue
Oh she sighs as he walks away into the downtown day

Day after day night after night
Loneliness creeps in her window
She locks the door, turns off the light
Rehearsing a kiss on her pillow, she cries
It's all in a day's work

Turning pages while the memories pass
Familiar faces from her senior class
How the years go by when it's all in a day's work
"Dearest Ruby, hope you reach your star
Don't ever change, stay as sweet as you are"
And when a teardrop falls she calls it a day's work
She calls it a day

Oh she waits by the telephone for the call he promised
Oh it's late
She puts her heart away for another day

Day after day night after night
Loneliness creeps in her window
She locks the door, turns off the light
Rehearsing a kiss on her pillow, she cries
All in a day's work
