Wow.
It's really good to see you again, baby.
And I must admit you're looking very, very, very nice these days.
I guess life must be treating you well.
Oh me?
Well, I've just been doing the same ol' thing I've always been doing, you know.
I've got a new lady now and it's a little different than it was when I was with you.
You know, I think back to when we met, the way I used to be and the cold way I used to act.
But more than that, I think of how you changed me with your love and sensitivity.
Remember when I used to

Love them and leave them
That's what I used to do Use and abuse them
Then I laid eyes on you
It was pain before pleasure
