Cecily

You pack it up, you pack it in, you go home again.
All the doors are locked, I can't get in.
Another family lives there now
with 25 years of my kids' drawings.
I wonder if they've got kids of their own.
But it's time I made off like a bandit.

So welcome to my new home.
No screaming neighbors, no telephone.
Last night it was cold so he shared his bag with me.
This hotel is free.
But it's time we made off like bandits.

There's so much I'd give to live the way you live.
You've got heat, don't you?

I earned a Masters Degree, Harvard 1973.
There's so much you don't know about me,
like my name - it's Cecily.
And it's time I made off like a bandit.

There's so much I'd give to live the way you live.
You've got heat and a door on a great, big house, don't you?
But it's time I made off like a bandit.
Would that set your mind at ease?
It's time I made off like a bandit.

You pack it up, you pack it in, you go home again...
