The One That Got Away Lyrics

There were two old middle aged men
And they were sitting in the corner bar
They were lying about what
Wonderful lovers they are
Bending each other's ear
They were bending their elbows too
And they were holding their arms apart
Just the way fishermen do, singing
You should have seen the one that got away
And you should have seen the one that got away

There were two old middle aged girls
They were sitting in the beauty salon
Waiting for their nails to dry
They were putting each other on
They were trading the recipes
And all of the ways to save
One hundred and one night stands
With a brand new permanent wave, they were singing
You should have seen the one that got away
Oh, you should have seen the one that got away

Hindsight makes the heart grow fonder
That's what it costs
When you run around saying I love you
With your fingers crossed
And it's too late to go back now
OH that's just about as good as it gets
For rock'n roll Romeos and their jukebox Juliets

And you can see them out on the street
Tryin' to figure out what it all means
When they try to make their lives complete
In the safety of their dreams
By putting their arms around the one that got away

And you should have seen the one that got away
Oh you should have seen the one that got away
And you should have seen the one that got away
