Thanks For The Memories

Writer(s): leo robin/ralph rainger

Thanks for the memory
Of things I canít forget
Journeys on a jet
Our wondírous week in martinique
And vegas and roulette
How lucky I was

And thanks for the memory
Of summers by the sea
Dawn in waikiki
We had a pad in london
But we didnít stop for tea
How cozy it was

Now since our breakup I wake up
Alone on a gray morning-after
I long for the sound of your laughter
And then I see the laughís on me

But thanks for the memory
Of every touch a thrill
Iíve been through the mill
Iíve lived a lot and learned a lot
You loved me not and still
I miss you so much

Thanks for the memory
Of how we used to jog
Even in a fog
That barbecue in malibu
Away from all the smog
How rainy it was

Thanks for the memory
Of letters I destroyed
Books that we enjoyed
Tonight the way things look
I need a book by sigmund freud
How brainy he was

Gone are those evenings on broadway
Together weíd go to a great show
But now I begin with the late show
And wish that you
Were watching, too

I know itís a fallacy
That grown men never cry
Baby, thatís a lie
We had our bed of roses
But forgot that roses die
And thank you so much
