Jimmy McGregor, hey, Jimmy, come here!
Jimmy you son of a gun!
What 'cha been doin'? How long has it been?
Sseven years if it's been one.
How's the preacher? How's Don, did he go back to school?
(No kidding, I thought he was gay!)
Who me? Oh, I'm great! I'm a father you know.
Yeah, two of 'em and one on the way.
Oh, well, she couldn't make it, she gets pretty tired,
She started her last month today.
I only came up for a couple of minutes,
Believe me, I wish I could stay.
Oh, and yeah while I think of it, do you remember,
Not for myself, for a friend.
A girl that I brought here, before I got married
A couple of times at the end.
Whatshername? She hardly knew me;
Now her name means something to me.
I wonder if she ever got over me?
Anyway I should be flattered
For yesterday at least I mattered
Where did it go?
Jimmy I tell you we're two lucky guys
You've got everything that you've planned.
And all things considered I've done fairly well
I mean God's honest truth, man
I love Ruth and Whatshername...
I thought I knew her, Whatshername...
What happened to her,
I don't know why I'll never forget
