I can’t remember to forget
The first time that we met
Shivering, your hair was wet
Singing in the rain I bet

Hey girl, look at you

Come inside, its warm and dry
Rest your troubles, ease your mind

Hey hey, If I knew then what I know now
You would not have been my gal

So she stayed for a couple of days
Intrigued by her bohemian ways
Aroused intuition, she touched me deep
Now I’m on the floor in a heap


Things were going from bad to worse
Should be leaving me in a hearse
She stole me tape recorder
Now she’s on a restraining order
