When it comes to names my confidence wanes
I know it’s so lame and I blame my brain
Your name! Your name! I don’t recall
I just don’t remember at all
I know your face but your name escapes me
You name! Forgetting it sucks I agree.
Names of trees I am good at recalling
Can’t name thee, which is pretty appalling
Your name! Your name! I think I know
I won’t say it, my doubt will show
It’s a weakness of mine to be certain
Your name! Will you please remind me again?
