"Hello, and how are you today?
Oh gee, that's great. I miss seeing you around
This is the first time since you went away
I heard a new love you have found"

"Did she light a new fire in your heart?
The ashes of our love were hardly cold
Oh, I see, you felt that it was time that we should part
That our unforgettable fire had grown old"

"Does she fan the flame of love the way I could?
Does her fire keep you warm on winter nights?
Oh no, I can tell you that she never could
And your night is lacking in love's sweet delights"

"Oh well, I think perhaps it's you that's not so hot
In retrospect, you weren't that great a catch
Compared to the flame my new love's got
I've found that you're just a burnt out match"
