DO YOU REMEMBER

Do you remember . .
The first time
I saw you
and you saw me

And that was that?


Do you remember . .
The first time
I showed up
from out-of-town

And coincidences were fat?


Do you remember . .
The first time
I called you
and you acted

Like a brat?


Do you remember . .
The first time
You sang to me
but I couldn't see you

From where I sat?


Do you remember . .
The first time
I sang along
with you

And it came out flat?


Do you remember . .
The first time
I dressed for you
and they loved

The Sinatra hat?


Do you remember . .
The first time
I longed for you
in bed alone

On wasted slat?


Do you remember . .
The first time
I said 'I love you'
and you ignored me

Like a cat?
