 Its so nice to meet
       an old friend
  and pass the time of
               day
  And talk about the
         home town
  a million miles away
       Is the ice still
           on the river,
  are the old folks
       still the same
     And by the way,
  did she mention my
         name
   Did she mention my
                   name
       just in passing
And when the morning
       came,

                   do you remember if she dropped a name or two
Is the home team still on fire,
                   do they still win all the games
And by the way,
                   did she mention my name

Is the landlord still a loser,
                   do his signs hang in the hall
Are the young girls still as pretty in the city in the fall
Does the laughter on their faces still put the sun to shame
And by the way,
                   did she mention my name

Did she mention my name just in passing
And when the talk ran high,
                   did the look in her eye seem far away
Is the old roof still leaking when the late snow turns to rain
And by the way,
                   did she mention my name

Did she mention my name just in passing
And looking at the rain,
                   do you remember if she dropped a name or two
Wont you say hello from someone,
                   theyll be no need to explain
And by the way,
                   did she mention my name

Gordon Lightfoot

(1938)

Did she mention my name?

Mount Sinai,

also known as Mount Horeb, Mount Musa, Gebel Musa or Jabal Musa ("Moses' Mountain") by the Bedouins,
is the name of a mountain in the Sinai Peninsula.
At 2,285 metres high, it is the second highest mountain in the Sinai, after Mount St. Catherine

The steep, more direct route (Siket Sayidna Musa) ascends the 3,750 "steps of penitence"
directly up the ravine behind the monastery and may not be ascended by night.
At the summit also is "Moses' cave" where Moses is supposed to have waited to receive the Ten Commandments.
