  • Lyrics
  • Our romance won't end on a sorrowful note,
    Though by tomorrow you're gone
    The song is ended, but as the songwriter wrote,
    The melody lingers on.
    They may take you from me, I'll miss your fond caress.
    But though they take you from me, I'll still possess.

    The way you wear your hat
    The way you sip your tea
    The memory of all that
    No, no, they can't take that away from me

    The way your smile just beams
    The way you sing off key
    The way you haunt my dreams
    No, no, they can't take that away from me

    We may never, never meet again
    On the bumpy road to love
    Still, I'll always, always keep the memory of

    The way you hold your knife
    The way we danced till three
    The way you changed my life
    No, no, they can't take that away from me
    No, they can't take that away from me

    We may never, never meet again
    On the bumpy road to love
    Still, I'll always, always keep the memory of

    The way you hold your knife
    The way we danced till three
    The way you changed my life
    No, no, they can't take that away from me
    No, they can't take that away
    Can't take that away
    Can't take that away from meWriter/s: Ira Gershwin, George Gershwin
