Slim Whitman - I Remember You Lyrics

 

I remember you-ooh

You're the one who made my dreams come true

A few kisses ago

 

I remember you-ooh

You're the one who said "I love you, too"

Yes, I do, didn'tcha know?

 

I remember, too, a distant bell and stars that fell

Like the rain out of the blue-ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo

 

When my life is through

And the angels ask me to recall

The thrill of it all

Then I will tell them I remember you-ooh

 

I remember, too, a distant bell and stars that fell

Just like the rain out of the blue-ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo

 

When my life is through

And the angels ask me to recall

The thrill of it all

Then I will tell them I remember, tell them I remember

Tell them I remember you
