"Twenty Girls Ago" as written by and Bill Demain David Mead....
I was young and Bon Vivant
Twenty girls ago
When love was born on city nights
Under falling snow
How I played the same charade
Drunk on first hellos
A vagabond dream, hey that was me
Twenty girls ago

I was quick to turn the page
Thirteen girls ago
When love could live on lucky breaks
And favorite episodes
But tempers flared and teeth were bared
Whenever things got slow
Stuck in a rut, pushing my luck
Thirteen girls ago

Others may have measured time
In accolades and dollar signs
I had but one concern
Another year, another love
And the question
Was it me or was it her

Time was running out the door
Seven girls ago
We signed the lease and bought the rings
Honeymooned in Rome
As pigeons flew one afternoon
I found myself alone
Pining for youth, avoiding the truth
Seven girls ago

Well I was lost, hit the wall
Desperate nights of alcohol
Wondering what I should do
Another year, another love
Never answered
Then at last there was you

Time was turning back again
Just one girl ago
The soft impression of your eyes
My favorite first hello
Now these are days of serenades
Whispered sweet and slow
Believing in love just like it was
Twenty girls ago
Believing in love just like it was
Twenty girls ago
