Yes, I know I'm late gettin' home tonight
Can supper wait, I quess I lost my appetite
Yeah you can fix me a drink, oh anything's okay

And I introduced myself and you should have seen his face
Oh what a shame I met a friend of yours today

Please don't cry woman 'cause it's much too late for tears
Yeah, I'm sorry too 'cause it hurts after all these years

And ain't it sad a love like ours should end this way
And all because I met a friend of yours today
