when we first met
i was smoking popeye cigarettes
you were dancing so holy in the rain
never gave too much thought
to love, marriage, babies and what not
but here we go

grade school seems so long ago
we’ll raise up young children
and off to class they’ll go
I could have told you so

when we first met
you were wearing that purple polka dot dress
and I was giving you the eye
never gave too much thought about
back seats romance making out
but here we go

high school seems so long ago
our teenagers may take the bus
but they’ll cut them classes you know
i could have told you so

when we first met
i was dealing with some old regrets
you were seeing some other guys
never gave much thought at all
getting jobs paying debts family portraits on the wall
but here we go

university seems so long ago
i swear i never learned a thing
but hope like hell our kids can go
i could have told you so
