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!

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!

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

And thank you so much.
