I never should have sent you that silly letter
Yes, I miss you, but I could have done so much better
Driving back from the post office
In my golfcart this morning
Something struck me from above
Without too much warning
'Twas a badminton racket
That had hit my head
But when I saw where it came from,
I wished I was dead.
I looked across the street
And there you were
And out of all the people on earth,
You were standing with her.
You had your arm around her,
The two of you facing away from me
But if you had only turned around
Then you could have seen
The expression on my face.
I felt like I'd been trampled by a stampede
And if fate would allow it,
I'd get on my knees and plead
For you to take me back
But there's no saving what we had.
