His Latest Flame

This song is by The Residents and appears on the album The King & Eye (1989).

Some kind old friend came by today
And he'd been telling everyone in town
Of the love that he had found
And Marie's the name of his latest flame

He talked and talked and I heard him say
That she had the longest, blackest hair
The prettiest green eyes anywhere
And Marie's the name of his latest flame

Though I smiled deep down inside I was hurting
I wished him luck and then he said goodbye
He walked away but still his words kept returning
What else was there for me to do but cry

Would you believe that yesterday
This girl was in my arms and swore to me
That she'd be mine eternally
And Marie's the name of his latest flame
Yeah, Marie's the name of his latest flame

He said I had the longest, blackest hair
Prettiest green eyes anywhere
And Marie's the name of his latest flame
Yeah, Marie's the name of his latest flame
Yeah, Marie's the name of my eternal flame
