There's a clock on the wall at the end of the hall
That hasn't kept time in years
There's an old tattered bear in the bedroom somewhere
'Cause ya can't hardly sleep 'less it's near.

There's an old box of letters I know you still save
'Cause you're too sentimental to throw them away
But is there room in your heart
For an old memory like me?

There's an old satin gown been twice handed down
You were savin' for your weddin' day
But you married in haste, what a terrible waste
And it never got used anyway.

There's a bottle of champainge, it's french 59
But you might as well drink it to happier times
Is there room in your heart
For an old memory like me?

I used to tease you 'cause you couldn't part with
Things that were no use at all
Now I'm afraid that you'll toss them away
After all.

Like the clock on the wall at the end of the hall
That hasn't kept time in years
Like the old tattered bear in the bedroom somewhere
You can't hardly sleep 'less it's near.

There's a bottle of champainge, it's french 59
But you might as well drink it to happier times
Is there room in your heart
For an old memory like me?

Mmm hmm, is there room in your heart
For an old memory like me, mhm, mhm...
