Herman's Hermits: No Milk Today

NO MILK TODAY
/Herman's Hermits/

No milk today
My love is gone away
The bottle stands forlorn
A symbol of the dawn
No milk today
It seems a common sight
But people passing by
Don't know the reason why

How could they know
Just what this message means
The end of all my hopes
The end of all my dreams
How could they know
A palace there had been
Behind the door
Where my love reigned as queen

No milk today
It wasn't always so
The company was gay
We turn'd night into day

But all that's left
Is a place dark and lonely
A terraced house
In a mean street back of town
Becomes a shrine
When I think of you only
Just two up two down

No milk today
It wasn't always so
The company was gay
We turn'd night into day
As music played
The faster did we dance
We felt it both at once
The start of our romance

How could they know
Just what this message means
The end of all my hopes
The end of all my dreams
How could they knowm
A palace there had been
Behind the door
Where my love reigned as queen

No milk today
My love is gone away
The bottle stands forlorn
A symbol of the dawn

But all that's left
Is a place dark and lonely
A terraced house
In a mean street back of town
Becomes a shrine
When I think of you only
Just two up two down

No milk today
My love is gone away
The bottle stands forlorn
A symbol of the dawn
No milk today
It seems a common sight
But people passing by
Don't know the reason why

How could they know
Just what this message means
The end of all my hopes
The end of all my dreams
How could they know
A palace there had been
Behind the door
Where my love reigned as queen

No milk today
It wasn't always so
The company was gay
We turn'd night into day

But all that's left
Is a place dark and lonely
A terraced house
In a mean street back of town ...
