A re-write of one of my favorite Molly Drake songs


We strolled around on Western ave. in rainy April weather
And came upon a greasy spoon that we had found together
The server gave us coffee and she stopped to share a joke
I remember laughing
I remember laughing
I remember laughing
And you remember we were broke

We'd lay around on Bussey hill with rhododendron's bending
Shaking in the summer wind a summer never-ending
We wandered to the little stream along the meadow flats
I remember willow trees
I remember willow trees
I remember willow trees
And you remember gnats

We perused the North End marketplace at 80 in the shade
With all the fruit and vegetables so temptingly arrayed
And we can share a memory as every lover must
I remember oranges
I remember oranges
I remember oranges
And you remember dust

The autumn leaves are tumbling down and winter's almost here
But through the spring and summertime we laughed away the year
And we can now be grateful for the gift of memory
I remember having fun
Two happy hearts that beat as one
When I had thought that we were "we"
But we were only "you" and "me"
