Turnabout -  Jimmy Buffett

    As large as life she stood there
    Kissed my cheek and called my old nickname
    And though several years had passed
    Both of us still looked quite the same
    I said hi relaxed a bit
    Then asked her how she'd been all these years
    She told me she was feeling fine
    And came to see a friend who lived up here

    She told me she had finished school
    And then went on to college for a year
    I asked if she had married
    Slowly down her cheek there came a tear
    She said just an itchy eye
    It must be the weather way up here
    I told her I can't stand the cold
    It freezes me and I can't feel my ears

    We talked a bit about Mobile
    And thought about how it has never changed
    I told her I was a comin' home
    To spend some time and hoped it wouldn't rain
    She asked if she could see me then
    And we could spend some time now and then
    Because I lived so far away
    Was still no chance why we could not be friends

    I drove her to the waiting plane
    Watched that big jet streaking through the sky
    Thought about the sad young girl
    And the time that I just saw her cry
    That flame must still be burning bright
    I think I'll catch a later flight today
    It's time for me to go on home
    And spend a day or two down by the bay
