Default I Remember Her The Way She Was


I Remember Her The Way She Was
The way she was in sixty-nine
Long hair parted in the middle
So beautiful, and she was mine
I Remember Her The Way She Was
She had that twinkle in her eye
And to quote the great Bob Seger
Points all her own firm and high

I Remember Her The Way she Was
The way she was on our first date
I took her to the Kenwood Drive-in
To see Romeo and Juliet
And when I came home for Christmas
She gave me Crosby, Stills & Nash
We lay together in my bed
Whispering low, talking trash

Time takes its toll
I'd hate to see her now
I know her beauty faded
I bet she's big as a cow

I Remember Her The Way She Was
The way she was in sixty-nine
Long hair parted in the middle
So beautiful, and she was mine
But we often tend to forget
Romeo and Juliet was a tragedy
Yes, we had our night of love
Then had to face reality
