Back when you, when you were my darling
I didn’t mind to lose a little sleep
I didn’t mind to do a little walkin
Reputation never meant that much to me

How do I find that old failure feeling?
One that carried me so many years ago
Fun was dominos and seven up and Seagram’s
Thing were simple then just movin nice and slow

Ain’t it strange?
Well, ain’t it strange?

Well I had no clue, I’d be the boy how
Your momma warned you about
Well I had no clue, I’d…be the boy how
Your momma warned you about

Well, that old seen is always coming to me
I see you standin with your husband and your child
And you’re a picture of strength, grace and beauty
And me I’m just a fools in a super market aisle

Well I know, know hello would surly end up awkward
I never had the knack for talkin any way
You’re not the kind for bending over backwards
Smile and turn my shopping cart around and walk away

Ain’t it strange
Well, ain’t it strange

Well I had no clue, I’d be the boy how
Your momma warned you about
Well I had no clue, I’d be the boy how
Your momma warned you about

Ain’t it stange how well I knew you back when I was 17
Lovin you was easy baby but I was just a child
And these days you aint nothing just an interstate daydream
Folks were sleeping and we were runnin wild

And I still do my share of sleeping on the floor
Not sure if anybody knows me anymore

Well I had no clue, I’d be the boy how
Your momma warned you about
Well I had no clue, I’d be the boy how
Your momma warned you about
