[Verse 1]
One little kiss a moment of bliss,
Then hours of deep regret
One little smile, and after a while,
A longing to forget.
One little heartache, left as a token,
One little plaything, carelessly broken:

[Verse 2]
Into my dreams, you wandered it seems,
And then there came a day;
You loved me too, my dreams had come true,
And all the world was May;
But soon the May time, turned to December,
You had forgotten, do you remember.

Remember the night, the night you said “I love you”
Remember you vowed by all the stars above you
Remember we found a lonely spot
And after I learned to care a lot;
You promised that you’d forget me not
But you forgot to remember me.
