Verse -same chords as before-:
I feel so much old now, you're much older too.
How's the husband, how's the kids? 
You know that I got married too.
Lucky that you found someone who makes you feel secure.
We were all so young and foolish, now we are mature.

Verse -same chords as before-:
I was always so impulsive, guess that I still am.
All that really mattered then was that I was a man.
Guess that our bein' together wasn't meant to be.
Martha, Martha, I love you, can't you see.
