Lyrics

I know something you don't know
I want you to listen to the tale
I know a reasonable woman
Handsome and witty, yet a friend
She's got the right amount of passion
She isn't into rumour
Not too serious or too dumb
And equal mixture of good humour
And sweet, sweet memories
Sweet, sweet memories
Sweet memories
Sweet, sweet, memories
She's got sweet, sweet memories
Sweet memories
Sweet, sweet memories.

Has she got any faults then
Yes, she has one I must admit
When all the world
Tries to praise her
She refuses to hear it
She's got the right amount of passion
She isn't into rumour
Not too serious or too dumb
And equal mixture of good humour
And sweet, sweet memories
Sweet, sweet memories
Yeah, we got sweet, sweet memories
Sweet, memories
Sweet, sweet memories
She's got sweet, sweet memories
Yeah, sweet memories
Sweet, sweet memories

She's got the right amount of passion
She isn't into rumour
Not too serious or too dumb
And equal mixture of good humour
And sweet, sweet memories

Sweet, sweet memories
Sweet memories
Sweet, sweet memories
She's got sweet, sweet memories
Sweet memories
Sweet, sweet memories

Oh, memory, memories

Hey yeah, sweet memories
We got sweet, sweet memories,
Taking me back,
Taking me back,
Taking me back.
