Sometimes I like to think that we're married
Livin' in a lived in home
Our kids have grown up and they've moved out
And they've got kids of their own
Sometimes we laugh and sometimes we fight
But we always go to bed in love
Even though we've been married for thirty odd years
We still can't get enough

Sometimes I like to think we're divorced
And the child support is eatin' me alive
Workin' three jobs, tryin' to find a fourth
Just so I can try and get by
You took the kids and you took the house
And I'm livin' in my car
Sleepin' in the Wal-Mart parkin' lot
Wonderin' how'd I let it get this far

Then I remember that we never met
I just saw you walkin' by one day
I don't even know what kind of music you like
Hell, I don't even know your name
We coulda been happy, we coulda been miserable
But we'da been somethin' that's true
We'da left our mark on this ol' world
Together both me and you
