"How We Used To Live" as written by and Bob/wiggs Stanley....
A rose scented June
A rose he pulled in June
They're full upon the lawn
The doctor came at dawn

An old daily care
And Suzie Banana Stand
Through frosted windowpane
Your father's middle name
>From a train
And everywhere the snow falls
Sail away (x4)

A veil (pale(?)) faded blue
A Ruben's old curfew(?)
One windy Winter's day
A Windsor market day
People say
Everywhere the snow falls
Sail away (x8)

She's moving down the seaside
'Cause that's where he comes from
He gave away all of her records
Is that where she belongs?

Better think it through
Remember who
Is there something new?
Or is it you again?

Sail away (x12)

So take your red gown
And go down to the dam
To do as you please
On the streets of your town

The whistling kind
Shake it out of your mind
It could be the day
When you finally say
Sail away (x6)
On and on (x7)

Sarah speaks (2 lines missing):
Up the riverbank, land that dried up
The causeway full of nice cars
The sand a distant dream
_____________ (?) ______________
_____________ (?) ______________
Across the riverbank
Cross the riverbank, don't look back

Background sings:
To sail away
And on and on

Sarah sings:
I sail, you sail
I sail, you sail
Do you remember how? (x4)
Do you remember how we used to live? (x3)
