Latest Flame

A very old friend came back today,
Cause he was telling everyone in town
Of the love that he just found,
And Maries the name of his latest flame

He talked and talked and I heard him say
That she had the longest blackest hair,
The prettiest green eyes his latest flame anywhere,
And Marie is the name of his latest flame

Though I smiled the tears inside were a burning
I wished him luck and then I said goodbye,
He was gone but his words kept returning what else
As there for me to do but cry

Would you believe that yesterday,
This girl was in my arms and sworn to me,
She'd be mine eternally,
And Marie is the name of his latest flame
