There's a picture that I carry
One we made some time ago
If they ask who's in the picture with me
I say just a girl I used to know.

Just a girl I used to spend some time with
Just a friend from long ago
I don't talk about the nights I cry without her
I say just a girl I used to know.

--- Instrumental ---

I say she's just another girl now
Just a flame that's lost it's glow
And I say her name has slipped my mind now
Just a girl I used to know.

Just a girl I used to run around with
Just a friend from long ago
I don't talk about the night I cry without her
I say she's just a girl I used to know.

Just a girl I used to know...

Moderator note: This song has several versions where the
Wording may say "a girl" in place of the word "someone" and
The versing sequense may differ. But the basics are the same.
See the song titled "Just Someone I Used to Know."
