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
Now they may take you from me (they will)
I'll miss your fond caress
But though they take you from me
I'll still possess

The way she wear her hat
The way she sips her tea
The memory of all that
No, no, no, they can't take that away from me

The way her smile just beams
The way she sings off key
The way she haunts my dreams
No, no, they can't take that away from me

We may never, never meet again
On that bumpy road to love
But I'll always, always keep the memory of

The way she holds her knife
The way we danced till three (I did too)
The way she changed our life
No, no, they can't take that away from me
No, they can't take that away from me
