    Thanks for the memory
    Of things I can't forget, journeys on a jet
    Our wond'rous 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 didn't 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 laugh's on me

    But, thanks for the memory
    Of every touch a thrill, I've been through the mill
    I've 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 we'd go to a great show
    But now I begin with the Late Show
    And wish that you were watching, too

    I know it's a fallacy
    That grown men never cry, baby, that's a lie
    We had our bed of roses, but forgot that roses die
    And thank you so much
