or
Gordon Lightfoot

I'm not some long lost someone
Just dropped in to say hello
It's that same old lover man
Baby you lost so long ago

'Cause I was born to believe
I never could deceive, believe me

I hear no children's voices
Have they gone back to school
And that same old lover man
Is still acting like a fool

I guess I was born to bring you grief
Though I never was a thief, believe me

It's cold outside your window
Please let me in, the night is wild
It's that same old lover man
Not some lonesome winsome child

An' I was born to believe
I never could deceive
