every time I took your call lately,
it was partly for you, mostly for me,
to let you take me;
but that seemed alright,
'cause we were tight,
like a pair of brass fittings;
so imagine my surprise,
when you turned up in disguise,
and not for the long haul;
things change, lives rearrange,
and that's all;
just a little depressed,
don't feel like getting dressed:
since I'm over forty --
and you turned out like the rest,
just a shorty --
just a shorty.
