The Happy Time

(Kander-Ebb)


Remember the Christmas morning long ago
The frosted glass
The dancing snow
The happy time

Remember the painted horse
The carousel
The chocolate kiss
The caramel
The happy time

Remember a pale pink sky
Your first Easter hat
And if you should ask me why
The reason I ask you this is that
I wanna remember you remembering the happy time

Remember the day you found the dollar bill
The roller skating down the hill
The happy time
Remember the compliment you once recieved
That lie you told they all believed
The happy time

Remember your first school play
The sound of applause
Oh, do I go on this way
I'm only reminding you because
I wanna remember you remembering the happy time

The happy time
The happy time
Remember a long deep sigh
A tentative kiss
And if you should ask me why
The reason I ask of that is this
I'm longing to see you smile
And hear you laugh
So I can have a photograph
And remember you remembering the happy time
