Thanks For The Memory - Lyrics by Maureen Mcgovern


Lyrics

Thanks for the memory
(fade in)
Of candlelight and wine, castles on the Rhine,
Of candlelight and wine, castles on the Rhine,
The Parthenon, and moments on the Hudson River Line
The Parthenon, and moments on the Hudson River Line
How lovely it was!
How lovely it was!


Thanks for the memory
Thanks for the memory
(fade out)
Of rainy afternoons, swinging Harlem tunes,

Of motor trips and burning lips and burning toast and prunes
(fade out)
