Uh...Whatsiz Name?

I wonder what became of
Uh....whatsiz name?
A great buddy of mine
We were so tight
We were team-mates
We shared a locker
We double-dated
We were like brothers
Forty years ago

Wow...FORTY YEARS...!!!
He never sent me a postcard
I'm not hard to find
Not even a phone-call
I'm in the book

To think we were like brothers
Well, that's the way it is
And that's the way it was
With...uh...whatsiz name?

I think this would ring bells with many of us Stan - For the life of me, I was at a party recently and met up with this girl I had been best friends with - could I remember her name? No - the weird thing was she remembered mine and even when my birthday was - sometimes friends just drift apart

gosh this made me laugh. Why? because it is so darn cute and so very telling of how our minds can twist and turn as it ages. I certainly identify with this. Thanks for giving me a smile and a chuckle. : ) kathy
