Seals & Crofts – Goodbye Old Buddies lyrics

(lyrics and music by Parker Mcgee, 1975)
From the albums get closer (1976) and the seals & crofts collection (1979).

Where it started, can't even remember, just one day you were there.
Funny little girl in your tied-dyes and cutoffs, wondering who you were.
Well I was gonna blow you clear down to Miami with my cool and social art.
But I ended up awkward and I guess in the struggle I must have lost my heart.
So goodbye old buddies, and goodbye runnin' wild.
I'm makin' some room for a certain young lady, and I guess she's gonna stay awhile.

Walks in the country, sleepin' bag weekends, and fumblin' in the night.
Now look at me plannin' my life 'round this stranger, such a sorry sight.
So goodbye old buddies, and goodbye runnin' wild.
I'm makin' some room for a certain young lady, and I guess she's gonna stay awhile.

Now here we sit in our only night bedroom, all legal and settled down.
Talkin' 'bout light bills and diapers and T. V., and watchin' this world spin around.
So goodbye old buddies, and goodbye runnin' wild.
I'm makin' some room for a certain young lady, and I guess she's gonna stay,
I guess she's gonna stay. She's gotten all moved in, for awhile.
