Theresa

Lots of people liked Theresa, even said she was a clown.
Noone ever hated Theresa; she could never draw a frown.
Then one day we forgot Theresa, didn't notice she was down,
Then we couldn't find Theresa. It seemed she had left our town.

Most of us forgot Theresa, most of us had things to do.
Most of us replaced Theresa with another clown or two.
Noone really tried to find her, noone but Mary Lou.
She had really loved Theresa. But we had other things to do.

Well Mary Lou looked by the ocean where they'd spent so many days.
And Mary Lou asked at the schoolyard where they'd grown so many ways.
And Mary Lou called all her neighbors, but noone had seen Theresa.
Still Mary Lou kept on looking. But we had other things to do.

Even I forgot Theresa though she'd been my steady date.
I soon replaced Theresa, blamed it on the ways of fate.
Yeah everyone forgot Theresa, everyone but Mary Lou.
She had really loved Theresa. But we had other things to do.

We had other things to do.
