Remember? performed by Tom Rush

I hate to admit it, but this certainly applies to me more days than I care to admit!

 

[I’m] looking for my wallet and my car keys–
Well, they can’t have gone too far,
And as soon as I find my glasses
I’m sure I’ll see just where they are.

[I’m] ‘s’posed to meet someone for lunch today

“Beeeeeeeeeep”
[Tearfully spoken]
“Steve, this is Bambi,
and I am trying not to cry,
but I’ve been waiting for over an hour!
I thought you loved me! This is goodbye!

[Play a bar or two without singing, then:]
The voice it sounds familiar…
and the name, it rings a bell …
Now let’s see, — where was I?
[Play a bar or two without singing, then:]
Oh, well….

[Brief instrumental break]
I’m looking for my wallet and my car keys–
Well, they can’t have gone too far,
And as soon as I find my glasses
I’m sure I’m …
