Intro: The kids are driving and Saturday afternoon just passed me by I'm just savouring familiar sights We shared some history, this town and I And I can't stop that long-forgotten feeling of her In time to book a room and stay tonight Number 1 is to find some friends and say "you're doing well -- After all this time you boys look just the same" Number 2 is the Happy Hour at one of two hotels And settle in to play "Do you remember so-and-so" Number 3 is never say her name CHORUS: And oh the flame trees'll blind a weary driver And there's nothing that can set fire to this town There's no change, there's no pace, everything within its place, Just makes it harder to believe that she won't be around Oh, who needs that sentimental bullshit anyway It takes more than just a memory to make me cry And I'm happy just to sit here at a table with old friends And see which one of us can tell the biggest lies And there's a girl, she's fallin' in love near where the pianola stands With a young local factory auto worker -- just holdin' hands And I'm wondering if he'll go or if he'll stay Do you remember, nothing stopped us on the field in our day CHORUS
