lyrics

All the people that I never had sex with in college…
I wonder what they’re doing now.
Would they even be aware that they have the distinction?

College days, oh, college days.

All the people that I never had sex with in college…
They’re probably busy right now, getting on with their lives.
Seldom giving thought to what might have been, but never was.

(This is your life.)
And you better remember it
(This is your life.)
And you better not forget it.

All the people that I never had sex with in college…
And the one I almost did.

What a very close call.
I would have missed Miss Right.
I’d have thrown my life away,
and all in just one night.

What a small price to pay:
idle moments of regret.
And it’s actually a comfort
to savor what you never get.

Because of all the people that I never had sex with in college,
I’m really glad you weren’t one.

Just the notion of you being out among the wide array…
O perish the thought! Throw the possibilities away:
To have never ended up in the arms of the one I love,
in the arms of the one I love.

Every wild oat sown
is one more that can’t be grown.
Wondering what you’ve never known
sure beats ending up alone.

All the lips I never kissed,
every chance I ever missed
that felt like weakness to resist,
but this life would not exist.

It’s a small price to pay.
And I’m grateful every day
for the ones who got away.
They are grateful too, I pray

to all the people that I never had sex with in college…
And if they know who they are, I hope they can sing along
with this song, and they know who they are
and they’ve ended up with the one they love,
in the arms of the one they love.

(This is your life.)
And you better remember it.
(This is your life.)
And you better not forget it
and all the people that I never had sex with in college…
