Private Affair
by Garfield



Penny for your thoughts
Mister, penny for your thoughts
You look so far away
It must be nice to drift that way

Maybe it's a lady you’re missing
My, I hope not
You see I've been watching you
Well you don't seem impressed

Jenny is my name
And pleasure is my game
And I keep a tidy home

And I was good once as I ever once was
'bout as good as one night should be
But not really quite as good as in years gone by

Yes I'm as good once as I ever once was
'bout as good as one night should be
But not really quite as good as in years gone by

Time fly now
Well time fly

Actually I was thinking
You see it helps me to relax a bit
I'd just eaten dinner in Paris
And I walked along the Champs-Élysées

Well Jacob is my name
And the butcher is my trade
Yet I haven't seen work
For quite some time

And I'm not as good as I once was
Or as good as one night should be
Yet I haven't really thought about it in a long, long time

No I'm not as good as I once was
Or as good as one night should be
Yet I haven't really thought about it in a long, long time

It's been a long time
Been a long time now
Been a long time

But I could use some conversation
If you care to stay a while
That'd be fine Jacob, she said
But not here

So they walked for a while
And they spoke that little truth
You see there's no need to lie
When talking to a stranger

Yeah Jacob had been a butcher
For some twenty-two and a half years
Until in times when there was difficulty
And so little business

And Jenny she was a housewife
For only three years
When her man had been killed
In a political battle

Now when Jacob heard this
He looked at Jenny
And he called out
Yes he called out

Jenny this world
It's a private affair
For those out there
For those with the power

Oh Jenny this world
It's a private affair
For those out there
For those with the power

That may be so Jacob
But if it wasn't for ones like you and I
They'd not be there now

Ain't no sense to bitch about it ‘cause you all know what's gone wrong
Late at night, when you’re in your bed, the bad don't seem so wrong

There ain't no sense to bitch about it ‘cause you all know what's gone wrong
Late at night, when you’re in your bed, the bad don't seem so wrong

There ain't no sense to bitch about it ‘cause you all know what's gone wrong
When it's late at night, and you’re in your bed, the bad don't seem so wrong

There ain't no sense to bitch about it ‘cause you all know what's gone wrong
When it's late at night, and you’re in your bed, the bad don't seem so wrong

So damn wrong
So damn wrong

You know it seems I've been fighting since the day I was born but I know that I can move on
And it looks like I'll be fighting till the day that I die but I don't let it bring me down

It seems I've been fighting since the day I was born but I know that I can move on
And it looks like I'll be fighting till the day that I die but I don't let it bring me down

There ain't no sense to bitch about it ‘cause you all know what's gone wrong
When it's late at night, and you’re in your bed, the bad don't seem so wrong

There ain't no sense to bitch about it ‘cause you all know what's gone wrong
When it's late at night, and you’re in your bed, the bad don't seem so wrong

There ain't no sense to bitch about it ‘cause you all know what's gone wrong
When it's late at night, and you’re in your bed, the bad don't seem so wrong
