Artist: Andy Williams (peak Billboard position # 26 in 1963)
Music by Henry Mancini and Words by Johnny Mercer
Title song from the movie starring Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick


The days of wine and roses laugh and run away like a child at play
Through a meadow land toward a closing door
A door marked "nevermore" that wasn't there before

The lonely night discloses just a passing breeze filled with memories
Of the golden smile that introduced me to
The days of wine and roses and you

(The lonely night discloses) just a passing breeze filled with memories
Of the golden smile that introduced me to
The days of wine and roses and you-oo-oo

    Someone naive meets a person, falls in love, it doesnt turn out good, thats when you run into the door marked nevermore. But leaves a memory of drinking wine and recieving roses.
