– Thanks for the Memory –
– Deep Purple –
Music by Peter De Rose (1934), Words added later by Mitchell Parish (1939), Rec by Nino Tempo & April Stevens, 1969
When the deep purple falls over sleepy garden walls,
And the stars begin to flicker in the sky,
Through the mist of a memory,
You wander back to me
Breath - ing my name with a sigh.
In the still of the night, once again I hold you tight;
Though you're gone, your love lives on when moonlight beams;
And as long as my heart will beat,
Lov - er, we'll always meet
Here in my deep purple dreams.
repeat verse, then ending with
Here in my deep pur-ple dreams.
< = verses four to seven not sung by Ella = >
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 > > > >
So, thanks for the memory
And strictly entre-nous, darling how are you?
And how are all the little dreams that never did come true?
Aw'flly glad I met you, cheerio, and toodle-oo
And thank you so much.
