Song Description

Whimsical look at the world from a late-night hotel bar

Lyrics

I WONDER

I'm sittin? in the bar of this hotel
I?m wonderin' where you are and if you're well
It?s late at night and time I was in bed
I wonder why I?m sittin? here instead
And I wonder if that monster who just staggered in the door
is lookin? for a face to hit or just a place to roar
But most of all I'm wonderin' what to do
Sittin? here alone without you
Most of all I'm wonderin' what to do
Sittin? here alone without you

I wonder who decides what's on the news
and how are we to know if it is true
Murders, wars and famines and disease
we'd rather celebrate celebrities
And I wonder if that lady in the corner over there
is asking me to join her, or just fixing up her hair
But most of all I'm wonderin' what to do
Sittin? here alone without you
Most of all I'm wonderin' what to do
Sittin? here alone without you

Did Armstrong really walk upon the moon
And is the Second Coming coming soon
Does God protect the weak against the strong
Or is it only Might decides what's right or wrong
The monster orders whiskey and he tries to catch my eye
I wonder why the lady in the corner starts to cry
But most of all I'm wonderin' what to do
Sittin? here alone without you
Most of all I'm wonderin' what to do
Sittin? here alone without you

I wonder just who are the powers that be
and why they poison earth, and air, and sea
Oh I wonder if I?ll ever see the light
I wonder where the lion sleeps tonight
The monster calls the lady to join him at the bar
I wonder what you?re doin' now, I wonder where you are
But most of all I'm wonderin' what to do
Sittin? here alone without you
Most of all I'm wonderin' what to do
Sittin? here alone without you
