"Never Knew Your Name"

Chord diagramA minorAm
 It was very late in the discotheque
 Chord diagramG+G
 I was feeling blue as I sometimes do
 Chord diagramD MajorD
 I turned around it was time to go
 Chord diagramE minorEm
 Chord diagramA augmentedA face in the crowd a face I didn't know

We got to talking for a little while
 You said it's not the sort of thing you usually do
 Talking to strangers so late in the night
 These days you never know

Well I thought you were nice I even told you so
 But you smiled so shyly and said to me
 I bet you say that to all the girls you meet
 But it isn't so
 Yes, the club was closing so we had to leave
 We walked out together just a little ill at ease
 I would have liked to have walked you home
 But you said you'd catch the bus so I ended up alone

 I never knew your name nor your telephone number

 Will I ever see you again? I wonder?

It wasn't any longer than an hour or two
 That lonely street I said goodbye to you
 You glanced back at me as I turned the corner
 Was the last I saw of you

Oh I wanted to call, call out your name
 But stupid pride and idiot shame
 Hesitated, scared of playing the fool
 So you walked away, from Mr Cool

I never knew your name nor your telephone number
 Will I ever see you again? I wonder?
 No, I never knew your name nor your telephone number
 Will I see you again? Oh girl I wonder?
 It was very late in the discotheque
 I was feeling blue as I sometimes do
 I thought you were nice I told you so
 But I ended up alone

No, I never knew your name nor your telephone number
 Will I ever see you again? Girl, I wonder?

It's so very late in the discotheque and I'm feeling blue
 As I always do
 I turn around 'cause its time to go
