Who, when, where?What a time we had,
Too bad I canít remember it.
That time in Sorrento, remember?
No, when was that?
Only a few years ago, weíve been twice,
Have we? I donít remember at all,
That trip on the river Dart, how we laughed,
Did we, What about?
And the time you sang on that boat trip,
What boat, what trip and what did I sing?
Your favourite song by Donavan,
No, I donít think that could have been me,
Iím shown a photograph of a face I once knew,
Please donít keep asking me to remember,
It hurts knowing my mind is going,
Memories that last forever have gone,
And Iím going the same way,
Iím sorry I disappoint you that Iím not able to remember,
So please, no more, no more,
I canít remember.
