Bob Hope – Thanks For The Memory lyrics

[Refrain 1]
Thanks….for the memory…

[Verse 1]
Of candlelight and wine, castles on the Rhine
The Parthenon and moments on the Hudson River Line
How lovely it was!

[Refrain 2]
Thanks….for the memory…

[Verse 2]
Of rainy afternoons, swingy Harlem tunes
And motor trips and burning lips and burning toast and prunes
How lovely it was!

[Bridge]
Many’s the time that we feasted
And many’s the time that we fasted
Oh, well, it was swell while it lasted
We did have fun and no harm done.

[Refrain 3]
And thanks….for the memory…

[Verse 3]
Of sunburns at the shore, nights in Singapore
You might have been a headache but you never were a bore
So thank you so much.

[Refrain 4]
Thanks….for the memory…

[Verse 4]
Of sentimental verse, nothing in my purse
And chuckles when the preacher said “For better or for worse”
How lovely it was!

[Refrain 5]
Thanks….for the memory…

[Verse 5]
Of lingerie with lace, Pilsner by the case
And how I jumped the day you trumped my one-and-only ace
How lovely it was!

[Bridge]
We said goodbye with a highball
Then I got as “high” as a steeple (Did you?)
But we were intelligent people
No tears, no fuss, Hooray! For us!

[Refrain 6]
Thanks….for the memory…

[Verse 6]
And strictly entre-nous, darling how are you?
And how are all the little dreams that never did come true?
Aw’flly glad I met you, cheerio, and toodle-oo

[Outro]
And thank you so much.
