Eighty six Charlie came over
He asked me for a favor
Asked me a question
Asked me to make an exception
Ooooh, oooh

Eighty six Charlie he came back
Said he'd been thinking it over
Says he's had a change of heart
He thinks he's made a grave mistake
But I, I'll never forget you
I'll never forget you
You make things so easy
I'll never forget you

Eighty six Charlie, he came back, he came back
Sat down at the table and for the last time
Said he's finally made up his mind
He wonders if its not too late
Because I'll never forget you
I'll never forget you
You make me so angry
I'll never forget you

    Song MeaningI'm new to this, I know this is useless and obvious.
    I'm not sure about the whole song, but by the end:

    Eighty six Charlie, he came back, he came back
    (I am guessing that he left for some time while being unsure)
    Sat down at the table and for the last time
    (He will be leaving again, since it is 'for the last time')
    Said he's finally made up his mind
    (This line speaks for itself)
    He wonders if its not too late
    (He has spent a lot of time pondering something although I am not sure what)
    Because I'll never forget you
    (He has finally made up his mind and gone)
    I'll never forget you
    You make me so angry
    (She is angry that he left and went through with the other choice, whatever it may be.)
    I'll never forget you.

    General Comment'Eighty six' refers to a loose term used sometimes in restaurants meaning 'to remove an item off the menu'. It likely has it origins to the Article 86 New York Liquor Code of the 40's wherein circumstances were described when alcohol was not to be served to a customer.
    This song deals with the ending of a complicated love affair. 86 Charlie removed himself as an available option on her love 'menu' likely due to it being a type of love triangle or extra-marrital affair.
    They both have had this discussion with each other before and knew the moment was inevitable when the relationship was finally going to be ended. She's not really angry or hurted. Nor is she disappointed. She is just depressed that she may never again refer to him again as her lover - He's not available to her anymore.
