The One That Got Away  Steve Goodman

There were [D]two old [A7]middle aged [D]men,
They were [D]sittin , in the [A7]corner [D]bar.
They were all [Bm]lying about what [G]wonderful lovers they [D]are.
Bending each [F#m]other's ears,
Bending their [D]elbows too.
Holding their [Bm]arms apart
The way that [E7]fishermen do, singin'
You s[D]hould have seen the [A7]one that got away,
Oh you s[D]hould have seen the [A7]one that got [D]away.
There were two old middle aged women,
And they were sitting in the beauty salon.
Waiting for their nails to dry,
And puttin' each other on.
Trading their recipes,
All of the ways to save
A hundred and one night stands
With a brand new permanent wave, singin'
Hindsight makes the heart grow fonder,
But that's what it costs
When you run around sayin' "I love you"
With your fingers crossed.
And it's too late to go back now
And that's just about as good as it gets,
For Rock'N'Roll Romeos and their juke box Juliets.
And you can see them out on the street
Trying 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.
