Lyrics

An afternoon nostalgia

Television show You spoke in silhouette But, they couldn't name you Though the panel were very polite to you

But I remembered you Friday nights 1969 ATV - you murdered every line Too old to be a child star Too young to take leads Four seasons passed And they AXED you

Nervous juvenile - WON'T SMILE! - What became of you? Did that swift eclipse torture you? A star at eighteen and then-suddenly gone Down to a few lines on the back page Of a faded annual Oh, but I remembered you I remembered you
