Wrapping Paper
Cream Lyrics


Wrapping paper in the gutter
Moving slowly as the wind on the sea,
(Faces calling, waves moving)
In your picture on a wall of a house of old times.
(Can you hear me) Can you hear me
(Can you hear me) Wandering sadly?

In the city, feeling pretty,
Down and out and making love to you on the shore,
(Ruined buildings, faces empty)
In the picture as I gaze ahead and don't see
(That they're calling) That they're calling.
(That they're calling) Wandering sadly.

Shattered windows, stairs to nowhere.
(Hear you calling) Hear you calling
(Hear you calling) As I wander sadly.

Wish I knew what you'd done to me;
Turned me on to things I never knew.
It's all broken, weeds are growing.
Wish I was going home to the house by the shore
(Where you loved me) Where you loved me,
(Where you loved me) Loved me so sadly.

Someday I'll get back, somehow I'll do it.
I'll arrive there and you'll be there to meet me.
(Walk together, tread the weeds down)
Kiss again in the picture on the wall
(Where I loved you) In the old house.
(Where I loved you) Loved you so well.

An oddball track but one of my favs by Cream. Drums are so tasteful and vocals just spot on

My favourite thing about Cream was this kind of eccentricity...quirky little ditties on record versus loud, raw, blues in concert.

xtc1957

Ridiculously cool song. A timepiece... You know, we're never going back. This was all there was, it's all there is, and there will not be another time like this. You lose... I am eternally grateful to have lived during the sixties and seventies. The music was irreplaceable.

Mellow Elephant

Why does this have 450 dislikes vs 605 likes? I mean it's not the most typical Cream song, but apparently these people sought it out.

Marcus Bradley

Strange song to start off a ‘best of’ compilation 😂😂. I would have gone with ‘I feel free’.

Mr. Peter

I mean, IT WAS THEIR FIRST SINGLE. But naah...

Greg Holman

Ginger absolutely hated this song.

Sluff Adlin

Not sure why, he proved that he out swung Mooney and Bonzo in before Cream even took off.
