Dearie, do you remember when we
Waltzed to the Sousa band
My wasn't the music grand

Chowder parties down by the seashore
Every Fourth of July, test your memory
My Dearie

Do you recall when Henry Ford couldn't even fix
The running board under a Chandler six

Dearie, life was cheery
In the good old days gone by

Do you remember?
Uh huh!
Well if you remember
Wonderful!

Well Dearie, you're much older than I
What? Hey, wait a minute, 
Honey, I just got a long memory that's all.
Dearie, do you remember when we

Stayed up all night to get
Pittsburgh on a crystal set

Keystone movies, Coogan and Chaplin
Made you laugh and then cry

Test your memory, my Dearie
Do you recall when Orville Wright flew at Kittyhawk
But take it from me I would rather walk

Dearie, life was cheery
In the good old days gone by
Do you remember

Uh huh!
Well if you remember
Well?
Well, Dearie, you're much older than I
Ha Ha! I'll kill you

Dearie, do you remember how they

Loved Harry Lauder's act
My wasn't the Palace packed

Jenny Lind presented by Barnum
Sang her sweet lullaby
Test your memory my Dearie,

Chicago all in flames
Sure caused a terrific row
They blamed it on Mrs. O'Leary's cow

Dearie, life was cheery
In the good old days gone by
Do you remember? Well if you remember,
Well, Dearie, you're much older than,
Quite a bit older than,
You're older than I.
