Lyrics
We're gon' call it stormy Monday, baby
Lord Lord, love Tuesday's just as bad
Wednesday's worse, Lord Thursday's also sad
Too sad

The eagle flies on Friday, all Saturday I go out and play
Oh the eagle flies on Friday, but Lord on Saturday I go out and play
And on Sunday I go to church, get on my knees and I pray

This is what I gotta say boy
Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy,
Lord Lord Lord Lord, Lord have mercy on me
Yes, I know it's true
Now good Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy
You know my hearts a misery, oh yeah Lord have mercy baby
Gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta find my baby
You got to find my honey chow
Send her back, back home to me
Because, because

My room has got two windows
And the sunshine never comes through
So so dark and lonely
Since I, broke it off girl with you

I live on a lonely avenue
Little girl wouldn't say I do
And I'm oh so sad and blue
It's all because of you

I wanna cry, I wanna cry
Lord I wanna die
I live on a lonely avenue
Lonely avenue

My feet they feel like lead
And my pillow it feels like stone
Well, I keep on tossing and turning every night
It's no good being alone

I live on a lonely avenue
Girl don't say I do
Well, I feel so sad and blue
It's all because of you

I could cry, I could cry
Lord I could die, see me die
I live on a lonely avenue
A lonely avenue

Well my room has got two windows
And the sunshine never comes through
So so dark and lonely
Since I, broke it off with you

I live on a lonely avenue
Girl don't say I do
And I'm so so sad and blue
It's all because of you

I wanna cry, I wanna die
But I live on a lonely avenue
A lonely avenue

Lonely avenue
I've gotta get through it now
Oh the days were mine
You gotta be with you
I'm gonna leave this town baby
Yes, I wanna leave the town
Tomorrow night that's true

I wanna cry, I wanna cry
I wanna die
I live on a lonely avenue
A lonely avenue
