I met her on probation all hunched over;
I can still recall that little hat she wore;
She was chewin' on a hangnail in the twilight,
and I knew I'd have to scrape her off the floor;
Her rabbi said I'd hate her dog forever;
She said to me she loved my one blue eye;
But who'd have thought she'd run off on 'The Gong Show';
I now can kiss my credit cards goodbye.
