Mysterious lost weekend in a land
Where time stands still
Where people fall in love again
Just for one more thrill
My girl and I went walking
By the Caribbean sea
Someone snorkled by raised her head up high
And my girl said who's she?

[Chorus:]
Pre you a friend of mine who's old not new
Pre you she's just another girl that I once knew
A pleasant smile a pretty face
Another time another place
Pre you what's a guy supposed to do?

We'll blame it on the weather
And the stars that shine above
For bringing us together and
Filling us with love
So don't you fret my lady,
'cause what we have is strong
Let her swim away
Out into the bay
Your place is here with me

She's pre you just a friend
So don't be blue
Pre you she's only yesterday
Just passing through
Another page in history
A stepping stone for you and me
Pre you what's a guy supposed to do?

[Instumental]

Long ago we were close but the fire went out
She's a tease can't you tell
That's what she's all about
Like an old brokenclock on the wall
She's got nothing to say
She was long ago she's so yesterday

She's pre you just a friend
So don't be blue
Pre you she's only yesterday
Just passing through
Another page in history
A stepping stone for you and me
Pre you what's a guy supposed to do?
