  • Lyrics: MY BROTHER MIKE I was talking to my brother Mike On the telephone the other night Hey, Mike, is everything alright, is everything alright? Did you see the De La Hoya fight? Man, he really punched out that guy's lights What ya up to, working all the time? Just when you get ahead, you slip behind How's Mary, still contrary Yeah, but she laughs at my jokes and let's me smoke You always ended up with the same kind I was talking to my brother Mike I was talking to my brother Mike On the telephone the other night Hey Mike, is everything alright Is everything alright I'm coming up Sunday in my new car I'll take you for a ride '68 Malibu, cherry, man I'll let you take it for a drive Going to the high school reunion? no way Too many faces I'm best off forgetting Besides, I hate being reminded of how old I'm getting Guess I never thought I'd live this long Knock on wood, just like the song I was talking to my brother Mike I was talking to my brother Mike Hey, I'm sorry I smashed up your car when we were kids Don't worry about it, it's water under the bridge Where's the girl who wouldn't marry you 'coz we weren't rich Dad was right stay in school or we'd be digging a ditch School of hard knock, man, hard won, your dignity Man, it sure is hard sometimes Living far away from your family I was talking to my brother Mike On the telephone the other night Hey Mike, is everything alright Is everything alright Is it true a white light passes before us On our way out of this life Everything we ever saw or felt or dreamed Passes before our eyes Hey, maybe I'm just one blurry face In a sea of ten thousand others All of us who loved you, my brother So I pray it's true that love is light So go with love now, I'm saying goodbye I was talking to my brother Mike I was talking to my brother Mike I was talking to my brother Mike On the telephone the other night Hey Mike, is everything alright Is everything alright Hey Mike, is everything alright Is everything alright...
