Lover Boy Is Tired Tonight

Today has run its course with its turmoil and remorse,
and hassles at work like a man sent to the front.
It’s a battle I never win, and I come home all caved in.
A good meal and some sleep is all I want.

So if you’re thinking of me as an opportunity
just because I’ve turned out the lights,
I’m sorry to say, it’ll have to be another day,
because Lover boy is tired tonight.

I’ve been hard at it all day, with the bossman on my case,
thinking anywhere else is where I ought to be.
When I’m feeling like this, even hunger doesn’t exist.
I might fall asleep watching TV.

So if you’ve made some plans to attack your man,
after the kids have disappeared out of sight,
better suppress them for now, postpone them for now,
because Lover boy is tired tonight.

It’s not anything of you, just something I’m going through,
so drop your guard and know that I still care.
But my ship came in and it sank, I’m riding on empty tank,
and coming into home for repairs.

So if your love lights’ on and you see mine is gone,
don’t be upset, I’m sure there’ll be other times,
maybe tomorrow, let’s say, but for now, there’s no way,
because Lover boy is tired tonight.
