"You Can't Put Your Arms Around a Memory" as written by and John Genzale....
It doesn't pay to try
All the smart boys know why
It doesn't mean, I didn't try
I just never know, why

It isn't 'cause I'm all alone
Oh, baby, you're not home
And when I'm home
Big deal, I'm still alone

It's so restless, I am
Beat my head against a pole
Try to knock some sense, down 'side my bones
And even though it don't show
Those guys are so old

[Chorus:]
Can't put your arms around a memory
Can't put your arms around a memory
Can't put your arms around a memory
Don't try
Don't try

You're just a basket case
And you got no name
Could you live with me?
Go on and say
And even though it don't show
Those guys are so old
Can't put your arms around a memory

[Chorus:]

Johnny you're me
Yeah, you're memory
I want to put my arms around your memory
I can't try, I can't try...don't try
