One for the money
One song I'm writing for you
And if you can't take me with you girl
Take this Melody for a Memory
Love in the morning
love in the late afternoon
There'll be no words when I leave you girl
Just a Melody for a Memory
And if you can't take me with you
Take this Melody for a Memory
She cried when he left her
Her eyes went black with the blue
The infrequent letters
The sooner the better
The cold distant phone calls
Will have to do
And if you can't take me with you
Take this Melody for a Memory
Take part of me, take part of me
Take this Melody for a Memory
