From the album the hurdy gurdy man

Hi, it's been a long time, you're looking fine,
Proud as any woman should be, proud of womankind.
My, your hair is longer now, it's prettier by far,
Hope you don't feel too unusual riding in my flash car.
Hi, it's been a long time, you're looking good,
Proud as any woman should be, proud of womanhood.
Changes, many I've been through, pretty much like you,
Now as then I feel it would be pretty to touch you.
Hi, it's been a long time, you're looking fine,
Proud as any woman should be, proud of womankind.
Changes, many I've been through, pretty much like you,
Now as then I feel it would be pretty to touch you.
Hi, it's been a few years, you're looking down,
Dragged as any hippie should be in old hippie town.
My, your eyes are sadder now, it's understandable,
I'm amazed you spend your days keeping up all the "cod".
Hi, it's been a long time
Hi, it's been a long time
Hi, it's been a long time
Hi, it's been a long time
Hi, it's been a long
