My old flame I can't even think of his name But it's funny now and then How my thoughts go flashing back again To my old flame My old flame My new lovers all seem so tame For I haven't met a gent So innocent or elegant As my old flame I've met so many men With fascinating ways A fascinating gaze in their eyes Some who sent me up to the skies But their attempts at love Were only imitations of My old flame I can't even think of his name But I'll never be the same Until I discover what became Of my old flame I've met so many men With fascinating ways A fascinating gaze in their eyes Some who sent me up to the skies But their attempts at love Were only imitations of My old flame I can't even think of his name But I'll never be the same Until I discover what became Of my old flame (Contributed by Bette Carl - November 2002) ***** As recorded by: Spike Jones & his City Slickers (vocal: Paul Judson & Paul Frees) - 1947 My old flame I can't even think of her name But it's funny now and then How my thoughts go flashing back again To my old flame I've met so many who had fascinating ways A fascinating gaze in their eyes Some who took me up to the skies But their attempts at love Were only imitations of My old flame I can't even think of her name But I'll never be the same Until I discover what became Of my old flame (In the voice of Peter Lorre) My old flame I can't even think of her name (I'll have to look through my collection of human heads) But it's funny now and then How my thoughts go flashing back again To my old flame My old flame My - my new lovers all seem so tame (They won't even let me strangle them!) For I haven't met a girl So magnificent or elegant As my old flame I've met so many who had fascinating ways A fascinating gaze in their eye (I saw this eye! So I remove the other eye, that eye that kept winking and blinking at other men!) Some who took me up to the skies But their attempts at love Were only imitations of My old flame I can't even think of her name What was what was her name? (Doris, Laura, Chloe, Mannie, Moe, Jack? No, it couldn't have been Moe... I can't stand it, I tell you! This is driving me sane!) She would always treat me mean So I poured a can of gasoline And struck a match to... My old flame (Contributed/Transcribed by Bill Huntley - October 2005) *****
