Our romance won't end on a sorrowful note,
Though by tomorrow you're gone;
The song is ended, but as the songwriter wrote,
The melody lingers on.

They may take you from me, I'll miss your fond caress.
But though they take you from me, I'll still possess.
The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea

The memory of all that
No, no, they can't take that away from me
The way your smile just beams
The way you sing off key

The way you haunt my dreams
No, no, they can't take that away from me
We may never, never meet again
On the bumpy road to love

Still, I'll always, always keep the memory of
The way you hold your knife
The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life

No, no, they can't take that away from me
No, they can't take that away from me
We may never, never meet again
On the bumpy road to love

Still, I'll always, always keep the memory of
The way you hold your knife
The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life

No, no, they can't take that away from me
No, they can't take that away
Can't take that away
Can't take that away from me
