lyrics

You used to come and see me,
About the same time everyday
When the birds would start to sing,
And the sun would fade away,

You never returned my conversation,
Maybe that’s why it worked so well,
I haven’t seen you lately,
But I hope you’re doing swell,

I used to tell my wife,
When you’d drop down in the evening,
I’d say hey there look who’s back
And he’s sure looking pretty good,

Used to make me smile, for a little while,
I’d say hey my friend I like your style,
And then I’d go and ask my wife if we should

I’d say
Do you think he should come inside,
Seemed like a pretty good idea at the time,
But on reflection I didn’t think it through,
She said,
Don’t worry man he’s where he’s meant to be,
The outside’s in his biology,
I said geez your right I really should have knew,

Over time you visits became a little more inconsistent,
And I wondered if you’d fallen out with me,
But then one day I saw you again and it soon became extraordinarily plain,
That by the size of your belly it was obvious that you were a she,

So I said,
Do you think she should come inside,
Seemed like a pretty good idea at the time,
But on reflection maybe I didn’t think it through,
She said,
Don’t be crazy, if she’s gonna have babies she’s gonna wanna be at home,
But don’t worry love that little spot she’s got it’s like a penthouse that she owns,

I said I know you’re right she’s gonna be alright,
In the little spot above the window I know,
I was just a little concerned that she’d be up there all alone,

And for some time I watched for you,
Hoping that you’d come bouncing down,
But after quite some time had passed I knew I wouldn’t be seeing you around,
My wife would ask me what’s the issue,
I said I can’t talk now just pass the tissues,I honestly don’t know what I’m gonna do,

But then I saw out my corner eye,
A beautiful sight it nearly made me cry,
I saw 3 little friends drop down just then and they looked a lot like you,

Do you think they should come inside,
Seemed like a pretty good idea at the time,
But on reflection maybe I didn’t think it through,
She said don’t worry man they’re where they’re meant to be,
They’ll never be lonely now there’s 3,
But at least they know they’ve got a friend down here in you,

So goodbye friend just know I’ll miss you,
And I’ll think about you now and then,
I know I’ll never have another buddy like you come bouncing down again
