Thanks for the Memories....

  1. Thanks For the Memory (A Tribute to Bob Hope 1903-2003)

    - Words and Music by Leo Robin and Ralph Rainger -- introduced in the film "Big Broadcast Of 1938" by Bob Hope and Shirley Ross -- adopted by Hope as his theme song

    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!



    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.

    wonderful. I hope my Gramma is laughing up there in Heaven at Bob's jokes and enjoying his humor in the Afterlife. He was an amazing and giving person.
