    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 Schubert'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,
    I love your dress.

    Thanks for the memory
    Of faults that you forgave,
    Of 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
    Of cushions on the floor,
    Hash with Dinty Moore,
    That pair of gay pajamas
    That you bought
    And never wore.

    We said goodbye with a highball,
    Then I got as high as a steeple,
    But we were intelligent people,
    No tears, no fuss,
    Hooray for us.

    Strictly entire nous,
    Darling, how are you?
    And how are all
    Those little dreams
    That never did come true?

    Awfully glad I met you,
    Cheerio and toodle-oo
    Thank you,
    Thank you so much.
