men wander
women weep
from on my way to where
by Dory Previn
men wander
women weep
women worry
while men are asleep
men wander
while women weep
and that's the way
it goes

i waited for you love
all last night
i listened to music
and kept on the light
i watched the morning
and walked the floor
till i heard your key
in my open door

men wander
women weep
women worry
while men are asleep
men wander
while women weep
and that's the way
 it goes

as soon as i thought love
i heard your key
i put out the light love
so wouldn't see
i shut off the music
and faced the all
but it wasn't your key
i'd heard at all

men wander
women weep
women worry
while men are asleep
men wander
while women weep
and that's the way 
it goes

tonight i am certain
i'll wait some more
till i hear your footstep
at my front door
if you don't show up love
i'll curse all men
and tomorrow might
i'll be waitin' again

men wander
women weep
women worry
while men are asleep
men wander
while women weep
and that's the way
it goes

love with women
is very deep
love with men
is a thing
that can keep
they won't admit it
but ev'ry woman knows
that's the way
it goes
