There was a song that my mother used to sing to me. It was a song from when her own mother was small and she sang it to her and all her brothers and sisters.
I could only remember a small fragment of the song and I have been searching on youtube trying to find it.
and, Drumroll, please………I’ve found it.
This is the song,
Of course, My mum didn’t quite sound like Ella Fitzgerald, but hers was still the sweetest voice I could hear.
The Song was written by the great Irving Berlin
(You forgot to) Remember
One little kiss, a moment of bliss, then hours of deep regret
One little smile, and after a while, a longing to forget
One little heartache left as a token
One little plaything carelessly broken
Remember the night, the night you said, “I love you”
Remember you vowed by all the stars above you
Remember we found a lonely spot
And after I learned to care a lot
You promised that you’d forget me not
But you forgot to remember
Into my dreams you wandered it seems, and then there came a day
You loved me too, my dreams had come true, and all the world was May
But soon the Maytime turned to December
You had forgotten, do you remember?
I forgot to add, this song came out in 1925.
