They Didn't Know The Difference (But I Did)
Jay Ross- Norman Allen -- Golden West Melodies, BMI

Lyrics

 

WHEN I WAS A LITTLE KID

I WAS SWEET AS I COULD BE
MY TWIN BROTHER'S NAME WAS SID
AND HE LOOKED JUST LIKE ME
HE GOT ME IN THE TIGHTEST SQUEEZE
THAT I'VE EVER BEEN BEFORE
HE STUFFED DAD'S PIPE WITH LIMBURG CHEESE
THEN HEADED FOR THE DOOR
NOW DADDY TOOK OUT AFTER HIM
BUT HE CAUGHT ME INSTEAD
HE DIDN'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE
BUT I DID
 
AND THEN ONE TIME HE PUT A TACK
RIGHT IN THE TEACHER'S CHAIR
THEN JUST AS SOON AS SHE CAME BACK
SHE SAW HIM STANDIN' THERE
WELL MY LITTLE BROTHER WALKED AWAY
BUT HE SAT DOWN IN MY PLACE
I REMEMBER 'TILL MY DYIN' DAY
THE LOOK ON TEACHER'S FACE
AND THEN THE TEACHER COLLERED ME
BUT SHE WAS AFTER SID
SHE DIDN'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE
BUT I DID
 
AND A FEW YEARS LATER ON
I FELL IN LOVE YOU SEE
WITH THE SWEETEST GAL I'VE EVER KNOWN
SHE SAID SHE'D MARRY ME
AND SO WE SET THE WEDDIN' DAY
BUT WHEN IT ROLLED AROUND
IT REALLY MAKES ME SAD TO SAY
THAT I WAS OUT OF TOWN
MY TWIN BROTHER COURTED HER
AND MARRIED HER INSTEAD
SHE DIDN'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE
 BUT I DID
 
AND SO I GO TO SEE HER NOW
WHEN BROTHER'S OUT OF SIGHT
I EVEN FIXED HIS JOB TO HOW
HE HAS TO WORK AT NIGHT
AND EVERY TIME I TAKE HER OUT
OR HOLD HER CLOSE TO ME
SHE WONDERS WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT
WHY I LAUGH SO MUCH YOU SEE
I PLAY MY CARDS CLOSE TO MY VEST
LIKE BROTHER USED TO DO
SHE DOESN'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE
BUT I DO
