When I Was With You

Performances (1)

Do you remember when we were younger, 
All those crazy things that we used to do? 
You'd play my hips like drum sets 
And sing all your favorite Stevie Wonder tunes 
When I was with ya.

Do you remember we did everything together? 
I'd share my otter pops with you. 
And we would sing in all the slimy slimy barrooms 
We'd watch for your cousin Ed on the evening news 
When I was with ya

I'd warm your tootsies up, they're always so cold 
And I'd fix you supper from leftovers two weeks old 
And I'd read you the classified ads in bed 
And you would point out all the miserable lives 
That I could have had instead of being with you

Could've been Whoopi Goldberg's breasts

Do you remember when you wrote all those letters? 
Though I admit they were kind of sick 
But still I knew I was your honey sugar dumpling 
And just like a good lime you'd always be there to lick 
When I was with ya

Do you remember when you took all those classes? 
All those crazy gadgets you would fix 
I hated how cluttered our apartment was 
I hated our landlord Harry, he was such a dick 
When I was with ya

I'd warm your tootsies up, they're always so cold 
And I'd fix you supper from leftovers two weeks old 
And I'd read you the classified ads in bed 
And you would point out all the miserable lives 
that I could have had instead of being with you

Could've been Richard Nixon's last pair of 
Clean underwear going down the river

Do you remember when we went to Mexico 
and stayed in that cute little place 
We were honin' our fine love-makin' skills 
and you tattooed "I love you" on your face 
When I was with ya

I still remember the last time that I saw you 
You left me with a hotdog in my hand 
Was it cause I didn't want a pickle or was it a pretty senorita 
Oh well, there was always stuff that I didn't understand 
When I was with ya

I'd warm your tootsies up, they're always so cold 
And I'd fix you supper from leftovers two weeks old 
And I'd read you the classified ads in bed 
And you would point out all the miserable lives 
that I could have had instead of being with you 
Being with you 
Being with you

When I Was With You
