Maggie looks out her window,
Sees a cab in the street 
Lets out a point-blank whistle,
It stops with a screech 
She picks up the last box,
That sits in the corner 
She turns around to take
A mental photograph
She says to herself,
"I think a toast is in order,"
And she holds up
An invisible wine glass 

"Here's to the fool I was
Here's to the bride I could never be
I've gotta know what's truth and what's fiction 
I gotta feel like my love's got conviction 
So tell me truth  Cause I got me suspicions 
And I tell you if it's the last thing I do
I won't cry over you"

 Maggie sits in the kitchen 
Of Miss Bethany Jones
 Whose pouring the coffee 
And gathering stones
"You gave him ultimatums 
They did not even scare him
He'd walk a plank  Before he'd step down the aisle 
Take care of yourself, girl
He's the one who's gotta change him
Let him ponder bachelorhood for a long while"


 Cause I'm done with that
I'm done with crying  Seems like it's the only thing 
That I've been trying 

They're taking it down
To the heart of the matter  Talking the big picture 
Like it's a little tiny thing  Smaller than a bread box
 Thinner than a whisker 
They split like an atom
Then the telephone rings

He says, 


"I just had to call you
I feel like I've been spinning my wheels 
I just had to tell you how I feel
I'm not asking you to
If only you'd listen 
Don't cry "
