All the time, we missed the bus,
when we were in our prime.
I was taller then, and more
handsome. You fixed me
once more, and that was just
fine. You never told your mother.
Now I notice you and wonder,
is there any special way
we could shut the door
and miss that bus again?
After George Jones and Tammy Wynette’s “Did You Ever?” I know I’m on a country jag … I have a big decision to make, so initially I was thinking of “Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind?” But I thought maybe that was a little too on the nose. So I put “Did You Ever” in the YouTube search window and got this funny, semi-dirty song. I love how he says, “Alllllll the time.” Enjoy, and please leave me a request if you have one.

I love the long narrative implicitly conveyed in these five short couplets. Nifty!
Thanks! Clearly, the couple in the song has a lot of history — and a lot of mileage — separately and together.
