Lyrics Thanks For The Memory

Thanks for the memory of sentimental verse nothing in my purse
And chuckles when the preacher said for better or for worse
How lovely it was thanks for the memory of Shubert's serenade
Little things of jade and traffic jams and anagrams and bills we never paid
How lovely it was we who could laugh over big things
Were parted by only a slight thing
I wonder if we did the right thing? oh well that's life I guess
Hey I love your dress
Thanks for the memory of faults that you forgave rainbows on a wave
And stockings in the basin when a fellow needs a shave thank you so much
Thanks for the memory of tinkling temple bells alma mater yells
And Cuban rum and towels from the very best hotels
Oh how lovely it was thanks for the memory
Thanks for the memory of cushions on the floor
Hash with Dinty Moore that pair of gay pajamas that you bought and never wore
I wonder what ever happened to those
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
No tears no fuss hooray for us and thanks for the memory
Strictly entre nous darling how are you?
And how are all those little dreams that never did come true?
Awfully glad I met you
Cheerio and toodleoo
Thank you
So much
