Andy went back to school
He got sick of Newbury Comics
Aaron still rides a lot,
Except now he's just fatter

Alex took over for Alex Van Halen,
After his major surgery
Jon, well, he got married to Laura
And I teach their kid in first grade

Thought I saw you on the road last night
I need to get my eyes checked
Can't believe I love something as yellow as you
"He's gone so deal with it man."

"Wait, afer all, he did get us
Across the world and back."
Weren't you parked at the station?
I need to rub my eyes

We keep your door like
It's a postcard from you from camp
Maybe we'll see you in a junkyard soon
Oh man I really hope not
Maybe you're in auto heaven
Oh man I really hope so
Now it's all the same.
