More wonderful lyrics of the one and only Melanie, the most underestimated songwriter of her generation:

TAKING A BATH
Words and music by Melanie Safka

Oh I feel grotty.
The scent of my body
reminds me of dishwater left overnight.
Old salty eyes lookin’ for light…

Oh this old dress
has been cried in and lied in
and sweated and dried in —
it’s hittin’ the sack.
Now I’m alone,
but it buttons down the back…

And it’s odd;
after all that our love has gone through
I should be sittin’ here cryin’ for you,
but all I can think of is
taking a bath,
cleaning my blue,
bathing my body
and ooo… comin’ out new.

All hopes of getting it straight
left my mind very late in the morning
you left after dawn.
I’m touchin’ the tap
and I’m turning it on.

I’ve already wished I’d expired
and I’m so tired
of cursing your sun sign
and the day you were born.
I’m numb to the heart,
and i’m glad it feels gone…

And reality blazes
and I’m left amazed
that recovery’s already started with basics
and all I can think of is
taking a bath,
cleaning my blue,
bathing my body
and ooo… comin’ out new.

taking a bath (comin’ out new)
taking a bath (comin’ out new)
taking a bath….
