We went from being the toast of the town

to being the TOAST of the town

We were jamming at the blue note with the Guess Who

you took me to your zoo

asleep upon your couch

when the party turned to cards

You asked me to move there, but I was too afraid to change

I'd rather do nothing, I'd rather stay the same

    G
So sweet and pure
