  • "Dear Bobbie,
    Do you remember when you were young and very pretty? I do.
    I remember pleated skirts, black and white saddle shoes.
    Do you remember dancing that night? I do.
    I still think of you when we dance,
    Although we can't jitterbug as we did then."

    Do you remember when?
    How long has it been?
    Nineteen forty-five
    You opened my blue eyes
    To see a whole new life
    Do you remember when
    I told you this that night
    That if you're by my side
    When everyday begins
    I'll fall for you again
    I made a promise when
    I told you this that night

    I'll be fine
    'Cause when I die, then I die loving you
    It's all right, I'll be fine
    When I die, then I die loving you
    Loving you, loving you

    "Do you remember the times we would give up on each other and get back together;
    Then we finally was married in 1949.
    We drove the yellow convertible all night long.
    Do you remember? I do."

    Life has led us here
    Together all these years
    This house that we have made
    Holds twenty-thousand days
    And memories we've saved
    Since life has lead us here

    And I'll be fine
    'Cause when I die, then I die loving you
    It's all right, and I'll be fine
    'Cause when I die, then I die loving you
    Loving you, loving you

    I'm coming home to you
    Slipping off my shoes
    Resting in my chair
    I see you standing there
    The silver in your hair

    I'm coming home to you
    When I lay tonight, when I close my eyes
    I know the sun will rise
    Here or the next life
    As long as you're still mine, then it's all right

    I'll be fine
    'Cause when I die, then I die loving you
    It's all right, I'll be fine
    'Cause when I die, then I die loving you
    Loving you, loving you

    "You have gray hair now, but you're a beautiful woman
    And the years have been good to both of us.
    We walk slow now, but we still have each other.
    The glue of love is still bonding us together
    Love is what I remember. Do you remember?" Writer/s: LONGINEU WARREN III PARSONS, PETER MICHAEL MOSELY, RYAN MICHAEL MENDEZ, SEAN MICHAEL WELLMAN-MACKIN, WILLIAM RYAN KEY
