She did yoga way back in the sixties
It was an eastern thing
She was ahead of her time

He met her some time around eighty-two
He wore a business suit
She made fun of his tie

Divorced twice but doin’ alright
Was this girl’s attitude
Yeah this girl had attitude

She got into some stuff in the seventies
She met a professor, there was a law suit
She didn’t have money to pay the bill

Eighty-two read it afterwards
“Who the hell cares,” he said
They take on the world together

There’s a special kind of sunlight
That creeps through the windows
In nineteen eighty-two
Yeah nineteen eighty-two

Quebec City, nineteen eighty-two
They rented a loft apartment
And drank Pepsis

He took her to parties
She didn’t have money, she didn’t have money
So he helped buy her groceries
They steamed mussels for New Years

“Don’t worry, I’ll go back to school
And then we’ll be happy.”
She said in eighty-three
Yeah nineteen eighty-three

One day his mother called
She was a crazy one
He had to go back home

She didn’t know just where he was from
Somewhere in Europe maybe
No, she didn’t really know

In nineteen eighty-three

She hasn’t seen him since eighty-three
She said she might look him up on Facebook
But somehow I doubt it
Yeah somehow I doubt it
