Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, corner progression

4 ladies chain you know, you're gonna go 3/4 round
Join hands circle left, go walking round the town
Whirlaway a 1/2 sashay, circle left and then
Allemande the corner girl, and weave around that ring
I'll say thanks for the memories, those precious memories
Dosado and promenade in time
Thanks for the memories, those precious memories
That makes me think the world is mine


FIGURE    C1, corner progression

1 & 3 you promenade you're gonna go 3/4 round
Side 2 go right & left thru, turn that gal around
You substitute, dosado full around and then
Swing thru, 2 by 2, box the gnat and then
You're gonna square thru 3/4 round, hey corner swing
Allemande left new corner girl, then promenade
Thanks for the memories, those precious memories
That makes me think my world's ok

Thanks For The Memory
 
 

Thanks for the memory
Of candlelight and wine, castles on the Rhine
The Parthenon and moments on the Hudson River Line
How lovely it was!

Thanks for the memory
Of rainy afternoons, swingy Harlem tunes
And motor trips and burning lips and burning toast and prunes
How lovely it was!

Many's the time that we feasted
And many's the time that we fasted
Oh, well, it was swell while it lasted
We did have fun and no harm done

And thanks for the memory
Of sunburns at the shore, nights in Singapore
You might have been a headache but you never were a bore
So thank you so much.

Thanks for the memory
Of sentimental verse, nothing in my purse
And chuckles when the preacher said "For better or for worse"
How lovely it was!

Thanks for the memory
Of lingerie with lace, Pilsner by the case
And how I jumped the day you trumped my one-and-only ace
How lovely it was!

We said goodbye with a highball
Then I got as "high" as a steeple
But we were intelligent people
No tears, no fuss, Hooray! For us

So, thanks for the memory
And strictly entre-nous, darling how are you?
And how are all the little dreams that never did come true?
Awfully glad I met you, cheerio, and toodle-oo
And thank you so much.

Composed by Ralph Rainger.
Lyrics by Leo Robin.
Recorded by Bob Hope.
