Pre-you By: jimmy buffett, ralph macdonald, william salter 1988 I was standing in an elevator in san diego listening to two sailors talking. one had just returned from his honeymoon where he had run into his ex on the beach. the other sailor asked what You do? and the first sailor replied after she left I told my new wife that 'she was pre-you', and it worked. Mysterious lost weekends in a land where time stands still Where people fall in love again just for one more thrill My girl and I went walkin' by the caribbean sea Someone snorkeled by, raised her head up high And my girl said, who's she?
Chorus: Pre-you A friend of mine who's old not new Pre-you She's just another girl that I once knew Pleasant smile, a pretty face Another time, another place Pre-you What's a guy supposed to do
We'll blame it on the weather and the stars that shine above For bringing us together and filling us with love So don't you fret my lady 'cause what we have is strong Let her swim away, out into the bay Your place is here with me She's pre-you
Long ago we were close but the fire went out She's a tease can't you tell that's what she's all about Like an old broken clock on the wall she's got nothin' to say She was long ago She's so yesterday
Chorus: She's pre-you She's just a friend so don't be blue Pre-you Only yesterday just passin' through Another page in history Steppin' stone for you and me
