"I Knew You When" as written by and Joe South....
Yeah yeah ueah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah ye-ah
I knew you when you were lonely
I knew you when you were only

A boy all alone without love
I knew you when
I knew you when
You were sad and all alone

You didn't have anyone
That you could call your own
I knew you when
Your heart belonged to only me

But that was many tears ago
Now your love is just a memory
Yeah yeah yeah ye-ah

I knew you when you were lonely
I knew you when you were only
A boy all alone without love

I knew you when
I knew you when
We used to have a lot of fun
But someone came and offered more

Now I'm the lonely one
I knew you when
I was just a scared little girl
I used to be your only love

Before you came up in the world
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah ye-ah

I knew you when you were lonely
I knew you when you were only
A boy all alone without love
