I remember the thirty-five sweet goodbyes
When you put me on the Wolverine up to Annandale 
It was still September
When your daddy was quite surprised
To find you with the working girls in the county jail
I was smoking with the boys upstairs when I
 Heard about the whole affair, I said oh no
 William and Mary won't do

Well, I did not think the girl
 Could be so cruel 
And I'm never going back
To my old school 

 Oleanders growing outside her door
Soon they're gonna be in bloom up in Annandale 
I can't stand her
 Doing what she did before  Living like a gypsy queen in a fairy tale
Well, I hear the whistle but I can't go, I'm gonna 
Take her down to Mexico, she said oh no
 Guadalajara won't do

Well, I did not think the girl
 Could be so cruel 
And I'm never going back
To my old school 

 California tumbles into the sea
That'll be the day I go back to Annandale  Tried to warn you
 About Chino and Daddy Gee
But I can't seem to get to you through the U.S. Mail
Well I hear the whistle but I can't go,  I'm gonna 
Take her down to Mexico, she said oh no
 Guadalajara won't do

Well, I did not think the girl
 Could be so cruel 
And I'm never going back
To my old school
