              “Do You Remember When?”

“Hey Good Lookin” Can’t you hear Hank belting this one out!
“Merry Christmas” Bing could make the bells ring!
“Mona Lisa” Nat the King could make it swing!
“Amor Ra” Dean the crooner all the way!
“Folsom Prison Blues” Johnnie made them all cry!
 “Hey Jude” The Beatles were the best!
“Hello Darlin” Conway would softly sing.
“Rainy Night In Georgia” Ray would sound so sad.
“Mack The Knife” Bobby D. had the rhythm!
The boys singing “House of the Rising Sun” Oh, where have they gone?
The sound of “Dust in the wind” and the young men, who sang it so mournfully!
“On Lonely Street” Elvis, sing it  just once again!
“El Paso” Marty sang it like only he could!
“Crazy” Patsy put her heart and soul in this one!
“Coal Miner’s Daughter” Loretta lived it!
“Put Another Nickel in” Teresa made it sound so Grand!
 “That Lucky Old Sun” It just rolls around heaven all day! Frankie sang them all that way!
“Pretty Woman” walking down the street, Roy was the only one that could really sing this one!.
 The list goes on and on!
Where have they all gone?
They are all still here, as long as we take time to remember them!
