Remember the day I borrowed your brand new car and dented it?I thought you’ d kill me, but you didn’ t.
And remember the time I dragged you to the beach, and you said it would rain, and it did?I thought you’ d say, “I told you so.” But you didn t.
Do you remember the time I flirted with all the guys to make you jealous, and you were?I thought you’ d leave, but you didn’ t.
Do you remember the time I spilled strawberry pie all over your car rug?I thought you’ d hit me, but you didn’ t.
And remember the time I forgot to tell you the dance was formal and you showed up in jeans?I thought you’ d drop me, but you didn t.
Yes, there were lots of things you didn’ t do.
But you put up with me, and loved me, and protected me.
There were lots of things I wanted to make up to you when you returned from Vietnam.But you didn’ t.
