BOB AND ME

Words and Music by JOHN VITZ

 

I came home late from working on the second shift

And the house was looking darker than a tomb.

I knew somethin’ wasn’t right, and I was getting pretty miffed

When I stumbled over somethin’ in the room.

 

As I turned on the bedroom light, I was startled by the sight

Of a note where my old lady should have been.

I picked it up and I read it, and I nearly died that night.

She had up and run away with my best friend.

 

My heart sunk to the floor.  I fell back against the door.

I asked myself, “How did this come to be?”

Well, I guess it doesn’t matter; but, what makes me feel so bad is

We had so much fun together, BOB AND ME.  

BOB AND ME.  

BOB AND ME.  

We had so much fun together, BOB AND ME.

 

Oh, I learned a lot from life and especially from my wife

That love can be a fickle, fleeting thing.

Now, I’m hopin’ and I’m wishin’ that soon we will be fishin’

In our boat with bait and beer and BOB AND ME.

 

So much fun to be around, always acted like a clown

Watchin’ Super Bowls since 1983.

No more poker.  No more bowlin’.  No more basketball and trollin’.

Life just won’t be the same for BOB AND ME.  

BOB AND ME.  

BOB AND ME.  

No, life won’t be the same for BOB AND ME.

 

Yeah, it’s funny how things go.  It’s not what; but, who you know.

I guess I should be happy ‘cause I’m free!

Well, it’s gonna take a while;  but,  it always makes me smile.

When I look back on the days of BOB AND ME.   

BOB AND ME.

BOB AND ME.  

When I look back on the days of BOB AND ME.

BOB AND ME. 

BOB AND ME. 

We had so much fun together, BOB AND ME.

 

Spoken: (“I’m really gonna miss that guy!”)
