(Carly Simon/Jacob Brackman) The Carter family lived next door for almost 14 years With Gwen and I inseperatable from rag dolls through brassieres Then Gwen began to bore me with her giggles and her fears The day the Carters moved away, I had to fake my tears I told new friends Gwen Carter had become a silly pest And then I found I missed her more than I'd ever have guessed Grandma used to nag at me to straighten up my spine To act respectful and read good books To take care of what was mine I hated being criticized and asking her permission So what if her advise was wise, It always hurt to listen I didn't cry when Granny died, she made me so depressed And then I found I missed her more than I'd ever have guessed You used to make me moan in bed, but that can't be enough My friends complained your jokes were crude, Your manners were too rough Don't know just what I wanted, but I know I wanted more Someone smooth, presentable, to blend with my decor And now at night I think of how you grinned when you undressed And I find I miss you more than I'd ever have guessed.
