I Was Rarely On Your Mind

When you said that you loved me, though you knew it wasn't true, had you planned your betrayal, as a thing you had to do? Wasn't even your second best, how could I've been so very blind? I was rarely on your mind, (I was rarely on your mind) I was rarely on your mind. Maybe I was in the wrong place, at the lonely, lonely times, but you never once told me, you were happy I was yours. And those things you should have said and done, guess you just never made the time. I was rarely on your mind, (I was rarely on your mind) I was rarely on your mind. Tell me, tell me how you lived with me and lied, and give me, give me from your grave the tears I have so cried, that I so cried. And those things you should have said and done, guess you just never made the time. I was rarely on your mind, (I was rarely on your mind) I was rarely on your mind. I was rarely on your mind. (I was rarely on your mind) I was rarely on your mind.

A nice parody of the song Always on my mind ... Perhaps it would be wise to categorise it as lyrics and credit Elvis for the inspiration:-) hugs jan x

Thank you, Jan Allison. I will take up your suggestion regarding the lyrics. I do know the Presley version, though I prefer Willie Nelson's, and it was Willie Nelson's that I based mine on.
