See her candle
Waver in the window of her summer night.
Lying on the breeze
She tries to fall asleep.
Flights of fancy
Dancing through her memories like arabian nights.
He is riding on his wings of fire
And flies away.
She can still hear him say.

If you’ll be wise
If you’ll be smart
Don’t let a travelin’ man take your heart.
Take my advice
Don’t let it start
You’ll think you’re different from the rest.
You’ll try to do your part
Until he breaks your heart.

Lunch for the lonely
Looking at picture postcards of someone else’s scene.
Somehow they don’t seem real
The sea’s too green.
Somebody calls her
Giving out information
About the boy on the moon.
Suddenly it’s all too much
To be told
What she already knows.

If you’ll be wise
If you’ll be smart
Don’t let a travelin’ man take your heart.
Take my advice
Don’t let it start
’cause you’ve been told too many times.

(instrumental)

If you’ll be wise
If you’ll be smart
Don’t let a travelin’ man take your heart.
Take my advice
Don’t let it start
’cause you’ve been told too many times.

If you’ll be wise
If you’ll be smart
Don’t let a travelin’ man take your heart.
Take my advice
Don’t let it start
’cause when he comes and needs a friend
He’ll do it all again.

Better be smart
He’s breakin’ your heart
Find you another lover.
Better be wise
And open your eyes
This time.
