I took the time to write to my old friend
I walked across that burning bridge
I mailed my letter off to Dallas but
Her reply came from Anchorage, Alaska

She said, "Hey girl it's about time you wrote
It's been over two years now my old friend
Take me back to the days of the foreign telegrams"
And the all night rock n' rollin', hey Chel we was wild then

Hey Chel you know it's kinda funny
Texa's always seems so big
But you know you're in the largest State in the Union
When you're anchored down in Anchorage

Hey girl I think the last time I saw you
Was on me and Leroys wedding day
What was the name of that love song you played
I forgot how it goes, I don't recall how it goes

Leroy got a better job so we moved
Kevin lost a tooth, he's starting school
I got a brand new eight month old baby girl
I sound like a housewife, I think I'm a housewife

Hey girl what's it like to be in New York
New York City imagine that
What's it like to be a skateboard punk rocker
Leroy says, "Send a picture" Leroy says, "Hello"
Leroy says, "Keep on rocking girl, yeah keep on rocking"
