Pre-You LyricsArtist: Jimmy Buffett
Album: Hot Water
By: Jimmy Buffett, Ralph MacDonald, William Salter
I was standing in an elevator in San Diego listening to two sailors talking. One had just returned from his honeymoon where he had run into his ex on the beach. The other sailor asked "What did you do?" and the first sailor replied "After she left I told my new wife that 'she was pre-you', and it worked."
Mysterious lost weekends in a land where time stands still
Where people fall in love again just for one more thrill
My girl and I went walkin' by the Caribbean Sea
Someone snorkeled by, raised her head up high
And my girl said, "Who's she?"
A friend of mine who's old not new
She's just another girl that I once knew
Pleasant smile, a pretty face
Another time, another place
What's a guy supposed to do
We'll blame it on the weather and the stars that shine above
For bringing us together and filling us with love
So don't you fret my lady 'cause what we have is strong
Let her swim away, out into the bay
Your place is here with me
Long ago we were close but the fire went out
She's a tease can't you tell that's what she's all about
Like an old broken clock on the wall she's got nothin' to say
She was long ago
She's so yesterday
She's just a friend so don't be blue
Only yesterday just passin' through
Another page in history
Steppin' stone for you and me
