Thanks for the memoryOf sentimental verse, nothing in my purseAnd chuckles when the preacher said"For better or for worse"How lovely it wasThanks for the memoryOf Shubert's "Serenade," little things of jadeAnd traffic jams and anagrams and bills we never paidHow lovely it wasWe who could laugh over big thingsWere parted by only a slight thingI wonder if we did the right thingOh, well, that's life, I guessI love your dressDo you?It's prettyThanks for the memoryOf faults that you forgave, rainbows on a waveAnd stockings in the basin when a fellow needs a shaveThank you, so muchThanks for the memoryOf tinkly temple bells, alma mater yellsAnd Cuban rum and towels from the very best hotelsOh, how lovely it was
Thanks for the memoryOf cushions on the floorHash with Dinty MooreThat pair of gay pajamas that you bought and never woreSay, by the wayWhatever became of those pajamas?We said goodbye with a highballThen I got as high as a steepleDid you?But we were intelligent peopleNo tears, no fuss, hooray for usStrictly entre nousDarling, how are you?And how are all those little dreamsThat never did come true?Awfully glad I met youCheerio and tootle-looThank youThank you so much
This is a song of fond farewell to a lover, and it became Bob Hope’s signature song after it appeared in his movie, The Big Broadcast of 1938. It won the Academy Award for best original song, and reached the height of its popularity during WW2, when Hope used it to close each of his USO shows in Europe.
