Lyrics verse 1:
IT WAS LATE
AND I WAS SLEEPING
WHEN HE CALLED
AND I CAN'T REMEMBER
MUCH HE SAID AT ALL.
JUST THAT
HE WAS LEAVING TOWN
AND MUST
GET OFF THE PHONE
I CAN'T REMEMBER
WHEN HE TOLD ME
HE'D BE HOME.

Chorus:
DID HE SAY,
SUNDAY NOON
OR ONE DAY SOON?
I THINK HE LEFT
WITH DAN
BUT WHAT
IF HE SAID ANN?
DID THEY GO
TO MEET A TRAIN?
OR LEAVE
TO CATCH A PLANE?
I CAN'T REMEMBER,
BUT I CAN'T FORGET
HE'S GONE.

verse 2:
SO I TELEPHONED
HIS HOUSE
AND ASKED HIS MOM
IF SHE KNEW WHERE
HER LITTLE BOY
HAD GONE.
I KNOW
SHE MUST HAVE TOLD ME,
AND I HEARD HER
LOUD AND CLEAR
BUT I CAN'T REMEMBER
ANYTHING BUT TEARS.

Chorus:
DID SHE SAY,
FISHING TRIP,
OR, HE GAVE YOU
THE SLIP?
IS HE OFF
TO SEE THE WORLD
OR SEE ANOTHER GIRL?
DID SHE SAY,
HE TOOK THE CAR,
OR, WHAT A FOOL
YOU ARE?
I CAN'T REMEMBER,
BUT I CAN'T FORGET
HE'S GONE.
