Phil Vassar — Carlene lyrics

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

It's been a long time since I've been around
Since I stepped foot on my old stomping ground
I ended up by the old school yard
And this red head pulls up in a blue sports car
And said, "I bet you don't remember, I guess it's 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
Time has been good to you
If you know what I mean
Girl, you glitter like hollywood
Good gosh Carlene
You sure are lookin' good"
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/phil-vassar-carlene-lyrics.html ]
She said hop in let's 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, I've got a PHD,
Now I'm modeling for money."
Imagine little miss 4.0 just smiling for the camera on the cover of Vogue
I said you've come a long way since graduation
Let me say without reservation
You've surpassed everyone's expectations, now

Ooh la la la la la
Looking good Carlene
Woh my my my my my
Time has been good to you
If you know what I mean
Girl, you glitter like hollywood
Good gosh 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.
Pick me up at my Momma's at eight!"

I said,

"Ooh la la la la la
Looking good Carlene
Woh my my my my my
Time has 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
Time has been good to you
If you know what I mean
