lyrics

It was late in the day
It was late in the day
and everybody makes mistakes, but I still did a bad thing.

I had too much to drink
I was so high I could not think
and the moon was winking his shimmering shink, I did a bad thing.

And the dogs were howling the je m'accuse blues.
Stumbling home I kept on losing my shoes,
I ain't got no excuse, mea maxima culpa.

I had nowhere to go
I had nowhere to go, and nobody could know, that I did a bad thing.

And the dogs were howling...

I got lost down a dark back street,
found a doorway, crawled in, curled up and fell asleep
to be awoken by the smell of a man and the sound of his booted feet,
I ran, and ran until I could not breathe

And the dogs were howling...
