An afternoon nostalgia
You spoke in silhouette
But, they couldn't name you
Though the panel were very polite to you
But I remembered you
Friday nights 1969
ATV - you murdered every line
Too old to be a child star
Too young to take leads
Four seasons passed
And they AXED you
- WON'T SMILE! -
What became of you?
Did that swift eclipse torture you?
A star at eighteen and then-suddenly gone
Down to a few lines on the back page
Of a faded annual
Oh, but I remembered you
I remembered you
