I left town two years ago and moved on up to Idaho
But swore that I'd be back again - Pick up where I left off, oh man
Grown up sexy Texas babies I got back in town tonight
Anticipating much delight
I pulled out my black book and called up my old lovers
I got five newlyweds and two expectant mothers

All my old flames have new names
There's a lot of girls in town
Who tied the knot and settled down
I thought I'd start a fire with one of my old flames
But they've all got new names

My sexy little dirt road sport is now called Mrs. Davenport
My pretty little black-eyed Susie's now Mrs. Susan Van Der Hoosie
Rosie who could blow my mind is sister Rose on channel nine
The wildest lover of my life is now a federal judges wife
They don't want to recognize this old familiar face
I'm just a bad reminder of their wild and woolly days

All my old flames have new names
There's a lot of girls in town
Who tied the knot and settled down
I thought I'd start a fire with one of my old flames
But they've all got new names
