Early Wednesday Morning

Lori Lieberman

Early Wednesday morning
I came into this life
Wednesday’s child was full of woe
I guess that they were right

If I’d come here on a Monday
The future in my hand
But I’m just another stranger
In another foreign land

I tried to find the answer
In the stars, the infinite
I was a just a jagged puzzle piece
Looking for a place to fit

But all I got were questions
No one seems to understand
When you’re just another foreigner
In another Promised Land

Just another stranger
In another Promised Land

Another day she lays her heart out on the street
He says he loves her for the things she used to be
Oh fair of face and full of grace and oh so far to go
She’s Friday’s child, so good and mild
Just looking for a home
My home
My home
Going home

Early Wednesday morning
I came into this life
But Wednesday’s child was full of woe
I couldn’t get it right
If I’d come here on a Monday
The future in my hand
But I’m just another foreigner
in another foreign land
I’m just another stranger
In another Promised Land

Monday, Thursday, Friday would be fine
Just my luck, it’s Wednesday all the time
Monday, Thursday, Friday would be fine
Just my luck, it’s Wednesday all the time
In another Promised Land
In another Promised Land
