  • Lyrics: I don’t want to make the coffee • I don’t want to make the bed • I don’t want to open my eyes • I don’t want to raise my head •• Cause the moment I arise and rub my eyes I will start to think of you • How you like your coffee and all the morning things that we used to do • And I’ll look out the window hoping for a ray of sun but see clouds instead oh no, no • I'd rather stay in bed •• I don’t want to open my mail • I don’t want to read a book • I don’t want to peruse the paper • I don’t want to even look •• Cause the minute I start looking at the black ink there I will see your name • Or come across your favorite book and that will only serve to re-ignite the flame • And my heart will start burning for you more than it is now and feel twice its size oh no, no • I’d rather close my eyes •• I don’t want to answer the telephone • I don’t want to see a friend • I don’t want to go out on the town • I don’t want to pretend •• Cause the second I start hearing bout how wonderful you’re doing I will start to cry • And that will get me missing you and wanting you and feeling I would rather die • And I might even try to call and tell you that I love you and to please come home oh no, no • I’d rather be alone
