Martha
Operator, number please

It's been so many years

And she'll remember my old voice

While I fight the tears



Hello, hello there, is this Martha?

This is old Tom Frost

And I am calling long distance

Don't worry about the cost



It's been 40 years or more

Now Martha please recall

And meet me out for coffee where

We'll talk about it all



[Chorus:]

And those were days of roses

Poetry and prose and Martha

All I had was you and all you had was me

And there was no tomorrow's as we packed away our sorrows

And we saved it for a rainy day



And I feel so much older now

And you're much older too

Oh how's the husband and how's the kids?

You know that I got married too?



Oh lucky that ya found someone

To make you feel secure

Oh 'cause we were all so young and foolish

Now we are mature



[Chorus]



And I was always so impulsive

I guess that I still am

But all that really mattered then

Was that I was a man



I guess that our being together

Was never meant to be

Oh, but Martha. Oh Martha, I love you, can't you see...



[Chorus]



And I remember quiet evenings, trembling close to you...
