No matter what the weather (What the weather. What the weather) We were always together. Then we grew up And time went on We became separated. Sad day Toby went away Sad day Toby went away. I came home from spring vacation Expected to find my Toby waiting Called her on her private phone She didn't answer Something was wrong. I ran all the way to her house Rang her bell Her mother answered and told me To come and sit a spell. I sat down to try to be prepared For what she'd say And what she said Brought tears to my eyes I couldn't push away. Toby left on a cloudy, rainy day She went to sing with the angels Toby's gone away. It was a sad day Oh, oh, Toby went away It was a sad day When Toby went away.
