Verse I

Oh, I'd love to hear the music
That they played us way back then
I remember all the love songs
We sang over and over again
And our hearts were overflowing
With such happy thoughts, oh when
We would sing and play the love songs
That they wrote us way back then

Verse II

When our guys would want to tell us
Of the love that they would feel
They would sing their favorite love songs
Then we knew their love was real
For the lyrics had the words
That they were just to shy to say
So they told us of their love
In their own special kind of way


They would sing of "My Blue Heaven"
And our favorite "Tea for Two"
Then there was "Heart of My Heart"
And "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" too
Songs were such an inspiration
I wish everyone could know
Of the sentimental music
We enjoyed so long ago
