"I Once Knew A Woman" as written by and Shel Silverstein....
Well now, I once knew a woman
Listen while I tell you all about her
And the first time I seen her
I knew I couldn't live without her

Well now she swore shed love me all of her life
And I knew I'd do the same
God damn I don't even remember her name
I don't remember her name.

Hey! I knew another woman,
Listen while I'm tellin' it to you
She had big brown eyes,
The kind that could look right through you
Now when she looked in my soul with those big brown eyes,
I got a feelin' like I never knew,
Hey, come to think of it,
Those eyes were blue...
I think those eyes were blue.

You end one love then on to another
Never thinkin' back at the past
Never stop to think, Oh brother,
That the next one gonna be just like the last one.

I once knew a woman,
Listen while I cry you my story
She had a heart like the world
And lips like a morning glory
Well, I knew at last I met my fate
And I was bound to settle down
Hey I wonder if she's still in town.

Yeah, I knew another woman,
Listen while I tell you some more, boys,
Hey, come to think of it,
I think I told you about her before, boys,
Well, she is the one who gets my heart,
She sets my heart aflame
Goddamn, I still don't remember her name
Mm, Come to think of it,
Those eye were blue (or were they green)
Mm, you know I'm really not to blame
Damn, I still don't remember her name.
