An old ska song originally written for and performed by the Toronto punk band "Dirty Movies". True story.


I was standing on a corner
In my old neighbourhood.
Somebody called my name.
I looked around,
I had to look again,
she didn't look the same.
A few years of marriage and a couple pairs of kids
She really looked like Hell.

I'm so confused
I don't know what to do Love.
I guess I hope
You're happy with your new love.

I was standing on a corner
waiting for a bus.
She came walking by.
She was so fine
So beautiful it hurt
It made my throat run dry.
I took my courage,
And I said, if she was lonely,
We could make a try.
I nearly choked,
cause when she talked to me,
She was another guy.

I'm so confused,
I don't know what to do love,
I'm afraid
I'll never find a new love.

I was siting in a corner
At a party down my block.
When she caught my eye.
She was young and she was pretty
A walking fantasy
with another guy.
He was my friend,
but when he passed out on the couch,
I had to make a try.
We talked a while,
But when the party ended,
We didn't say "good-bye!"
I'm not confused,
I know what to do love.
I guess you guessed
I'm happy with my new love.
