Things You Remember
(Written by Ray Harris ©2009 SOCAN)

Once upon a time, when I was a child -
Cows could jump over the moon...
I wondered then - and I still wonder now -
What the dish ever saw in the spoon.

Chorus: Don't bother sayin' prayers - go straight
to bed,
Those voices you're hearing are only in
your head,
Your father works real hard to keep his
family fed,
There's things you remember and things
you forget...

I've heard this one before, how you couldn't take
no more -
Your same old story keeps gettin' older...
It's he said & she said - you beat it 'till it's real
dead -
You can't see past that chip on your shoulder.
CHORUS

SOLO (Riff /riff/chorus)

If there's a price to be paid, let's call a spade a
spade -
You were both just as bad as each other...
If you need someone to blame - reach in and
pick a name -
Is it mother, father, sister or brother?
CHORUS

Riff

Once upon a time, when I was a child -
Cows could jump over the moon.
