The Back Room lyrics, Van Morrison

Lyrics:

In the back room (in the back room)
In the back room (in the back room)
I waited for you (waited for you)
Ya waited for me (waited for me)

Rain came down, pitter-pat
Say, 'What'd you think, it's raining outside?'
You said, "So what"

You turned the record player on
Had a smoke, stood up
Walked across to the john
In a cloud of mist, couldn't resist

A kitty stepped into the hall
An' she rapped the door
Found the key in the letter box
She turned the door
Walked into the room
And said, 'What's goin' on?'
'I just got back from down the road

I gotta couple a-bottles a-wine
Somethin' to turn you on'
What-a ya think of that?

(In the back room)
(In the back room)

I said, 'Sit down cat, pull up a seat
You're soakin' wet'
Take off your coat n' hat
Wipe your feet on the mat

In the back room (in the back room)
In the back room (in the back room)
I waited for you (waited for you)
Ya waited for me (waited for me)

I said, 'What time is it, Charlie
Where did we go all day?"
We seem to get no where and do nothin'
But sit lookin' at each other
He said, 'I know'
'I been doin' the same thing for weeks'

I look at the clock
And all of a sudden I'm hypnotized
It speaks to me, it goes
'Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock'
Ah-huh

The kitty said
'I don't know what you guys do
But I been workin' so hard, lately
That I can just only just fall asleep in bed'

So he played some more sounds
And grooved awhile
Somebody brought out some
Cherry wine, cherry wine

And we talked about what was goin' on
In the music world, and other things

A-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha

The rain outside came down
Like it came never before
Down it came, down it came, rain rain rain

And I said
'Baby what time is it, what time is it
'Tell me, what time is it?

'A-four-thirty'

So I peeked 'round the corner, the blind
An' there ya go
'There's another girl that's comin' home from school
Lookin' so cool, just learned her A's to Z's

And said, 'Hey man, don't look funny
All the little girls comin' home from school
And they're sittin', talkin' and drinkin'
