Foul Play (Live At The BBC)

Foul Play (Live At The BBC)

Robert Cray

It's Wednesday night, my woman's out
Once again I'm home alone
Lately every Wednesday night
She's late getting home

She phoned from work at quittin' time
Says the bossed asked her to stay
She says she's makin' double time

I suspect foul play
I suspect foul play

This makes five straight Wednesday nights
And that's no coincidence
Sitting here and thinking back
It all starts making sense

Her old boss quit two months ago
She came home all smiles that day
She says they hired a younger man

I suspect foul play
Said I suspect foul play
I suspect foul play
Oh, I suspect foul play

Something in her voice
Alerted my suspicious heart
I've heard that warning sign before
Just before love fell apart

This is my last Wednesday night
Waiting like a fool
I won't stand for another man, no, no, no
That's my hard-fast rule

She'd better have some kind of evidence
Of all this extra pay
She'd better have some cold, hard facts

'Cause I suspect foul play
Said I suspect foul play
Oh, I suspect foul play
I suspect foul play

Yeah, yeah
Something's gone wrong

Foul play, yeah
