I'll Always Remember The Song    (1988)

Monday evening the band played the polka
A new lively polka, with a military air
Monday evening the band played the polka, the polka
And my new love and I, we were there

Rum-tum-tum, tiddy dum, tiddy dum
Went the drum
Tiddy dum, tiddy dum
And the squeeze box kept wheezing along
Toot toot toot, doodle oot, doodle oot
Sang the flute
Doddle oot, doodle oot
And I'll always remember the song

Tuesday evening the band played a polka
The same lively polka, we heard the night before
Tuesday evening the band played a polka, a polka
And my new love and I took the floor

Starting slow, off we go
And the squeeze box kept wheezing along
Turn and then, once again
And I'll always remember the song

By Wednesday evening the song had caught on so
That the crowds had grown in size
Come Thursday evening the people in the know
Had begun to harmonize

Harmonize, improvise
And the squeeze box kept wheezing along
Mi mi mi, right on key
And we hardly got any notes wrong

Friday evening they encored the polka
We danced to the polka, the stars were burning bright
Friday evening they encored the polka, the polka
And my new love and I spent the night

And the squeeze box kept wheezing along
And the whole night it kept going strong

That next evening we drank to the polka
We toasted the polka at a neighborhood saloon
That next evening we drank to the polka, the polka
We were two lovers singing in tune

Rum-tum-tum, tiddy dum, tiddy dum
Went the drum
Tiddy dum, tiddy dum
And the squeeze box kept wheezing along
Toot toot toot, doodle oot, doodle oot
Sang the flute
Doddle oot, doodle oot
And I'll always remember the song

I'll always remember the (flute)
And the (kiss), and the (squeeze box)
And the (kiss), and the (drums)
And the (kiss), and the song!
