Thanks for the Memory
Words & Music by Leo Robin & Ralph Rainger
Rec by The Shep Fields Orchestra, Bob Hope vocal, 1937

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

Thanks     for the memory
Of rainy afternoons, swingy Harlem tunes
And motor trips and burning lips and burning toast and prunes
How lovely    it  was!

Many's the time that we feasted
And many's the time that we fasted
Oh, well, it was swell while it lasted
We did have fun and no harm done

< < < < And thanks      for the memory
Of sunburns at the shore, nights in Singapore
You might have been a headache but you never were a bore
So thank you    so  much.

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 lingerie with lace, Pilsner by the case
And how I jumped the day you trumped my one-and-only ace
How lovely    it   was!

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.
