clarence thinks about other people
people he used to know
people who were nice to him
a long, long time ago
a waitress in Yuma, Arizona
a schoolteacher in Bangor, Maine
he remembers the faces, 
and most of the places
and although so much has changed
clarence always remembers your name

carence can't tell you about this morning
but he'll tell you about Christmas day
maybe it was a lifetime ago
but it feels half a mile away
with brothers and sisters and mom and dad
and friends coming down by the score
clarence remembers the fun they used to have
now none of them
are around anymore
