No Milk Today - Hermans Hermits

 

Strophe) 

No milk today, my love has 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 

 

Refrain) 

How could they know, just what this message means 

the end of my hopes, the end of all my dreams 

How could they know, a palace there had been 

begind the door, where my love reigned as Queen

 

 

Strophe) 

No milk today, it wasn´t always so 

the company was gay, we´d turn night into day 

 

Refrain) 

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

 

Strophe) 

No milk today, it wasn´t always so 

the company was gay, we´d turn night into day 

As music played the faster did we dance 

we felt it both at once, the start of our romance 

 

 

 

Refrain) 

How could they know, just what this message means 

the end of my hopes, the end of all my dreams 

How could they know, a palace there had been 

begind the door, where my love reigned as Queen

 

Strophe) 

No milk today, my love has gone away 

the bottle stands forlorn, a symbol of the dawn

 

Refrain) 

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

 

Strophe) 

No milk today, my love has 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 

 

Refrain) 

How could they know, just what this message means 

the end of my hopes, the end of all my dreams 

How could they know, a palace there had been 

begind the door, where my love reigned as Queen

 

Strophe) 

No milk today, it wasn´t always so 

the company was gay, we´d turn night into day 

 

Outro) 

But all that´s left is a place, dark and lonely 

A terraced house in a mean street, back of town 

But all that´s left is a place, dark and lonely 

A terraced house in a mean street, back of town 

But all that´s left is a place, dark and lonely 

A terraced house in a mean street, back of town......
