When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

- "I Still Can't Say Goodbye," Performer: Chet Atkins

Take one fresh and tender kiss

Add one stolen night of bliss

One girl, one boy, some grief, some joy

Memories are made of this.

 

Don't forget a small moonbeam

Fold it lightly with a dream

Your lips, and mine, to sip the wine

Memories are made of this

 

Then at the wedding bells

One house where lovers dwell

Three little kids for the flavor

Stir carefully through the day

See how the flavor stays

These are the dreams that we will savor

 

With His blessings from above

Serve it generously with love

One man, one wife, one love, for life

 

Memories are made of this

Memories are made of this

Memories are made of this

- "Memories Are Made of This," Terry Gilkyson, Richard Dehr, and Frank Miller (a trio that used the group name, "The Easy Riders"), recorded by Dean Martin with the Easy Riders providing background on the recording, which went to #1 on the pop charts early in 1956
