"Do You Remember the Name" as written by Walter Becker and Larry Klein....
Do you remember the scene
Remember the scene of the crime?
The scene of the crime of a love
A crime of a love gone down

Do you remember the time
Remember the time of the year?
The time of the year was the spring
The year was the spring of our ruin

Let's assume that some folks may be expendable
The better is the enemy of the good
Don't'cha ask perfection of your trophy wife
Don't'cha take no chances with your trophy life, your trophy life

Do you remember the one
Remember the one in a million?
The one in a million affair
The one with the glorious prospects

Do you remember the shade
The shade of the sky which is burning?
Black was the shade in retreat
Blue was the color returning

Let's imagine some guy driving a coffee truck
Yet he dares to dream the impossible dream
Better have some answers for your trophy wife
Better not get cozy with your trophy life, your trophy life

Do you remember the face
The face of such graceful dimension?
The one that you wore in the world
It was such a lovely invention

Do you remember the name
Remember the name of the man?
The name of the man who tried hard
'Immemorious' was his name, oh
