Carlene Lyrics

by Phil Vassar

I was lousy at math, failed historian
Carlene was the valedictorian
I was quarter back in the back of classes
She was the whiz kid in horned rim glasses

Its been a long time since Ive been around
Since I stepped foot on my old stomping ground
I ended up by the old school yard
And this red head pulled up in a blue sports car and said
"I bet you dont remember, I guess its been forever"
It took a second to put it all together and I said

Ooh la la la la la looking good Carlene
Woh my my my my my times been good to you
If you know what I mean, and girl you glitter like Hollywood
Good God Carlene you sure are lookin' good

And she said, "Hop in lets go for a spin
Tell me whatcha been doing boy and where you been"
I said, "I write songs, you probably didn't know and I
Finally got a couple out on country radio"

She said, "What a switch, ain't life funny
Ive got a P H D now Im modeling for money"
Imagine little miss 4.0 just smiling for the camera on the cover of vogue
I said, "Youve come a long way since graduation"
Let me say without reservatition
Youve surpassed everyones expectations now

Ooh la la la la la looking good Carlene
Woh my my my my my times been good to you
If you know that I mean, and girl you glitter like Hollywood
Good God Carlene you sure are lookin' good

I said, "I hope to see you again someday"
She said, "Another ten years is too long to wait"
And pick me up at my my mommas at eight
And I said

Ooh la la la la la looking good Carlene
Woh my my my my my times been good to you
If you know that I mean

Ooh la la la la la looking good Carlene
Woh my my my my my times been good to you
If you know what I mean

Ooh la la la la la looking good Carlene
Woh my my my my my times been good to you
If you know what I mean

Alright, Carlene you're lookin' good baby
Alright
