Lyrics:
My old flame
And I can't even think of his name
It's amazing now and then
How my thoughts go wandering back again
To my old flame

My old flame
All my new lovers seem so tame
And I've never met a gent
So magnificent or eloquent
As my old flame

I've met so many who had fascinating ways
Or fascinating gaze in their eyes
Why some who took me up to the skies
But their attempts at love were only imitations of
My old flame

And I can't even think of his name
And I'll never be the same
Until I discover what became
Of my old flame
