From the recording The Procrastinators
EVERYTHING I’VE BEEN DOING
© 1985 By David T. Green
I don't know what you thought about
Me calling you when I'd been drinking,
I don't know if you went so far as to
Hear what I'd been thinking.
You mumbled something about
How surprised you were to hear from me,
Well I'm surprised that you're surprised,
I would have thought you knew me.
(chorus) Everything that I've been doing
Has been an effort to get back to you.
I talked to that friend of yours,
The one you said was fond of me.
I heard about how good you're doing and
How it's best that you're apart from me.
She said she was headed your way
And intended to look you up,
I asked her to say Hi for me,
She said she would and wished me luck.
I just got back from spending some time
Down in the piney woods.
Friends there asked a lot about you,
I answered them as best I could.
They were asking things like how in the world
Is it you and I never wed?
I told them about you finding out
I'd had another woman in our bed.
