The sweet sweet memories you gave-a me
You can't beat the memories you gave-a me

Take one fresh and tender kiss
Add one stolen night of bliss
One girl, one boy some grief, some joy
Memories are made of this
Don't forget a small moon beam
Fold in lightly with a dream
Your lips and mine, two sips of wine

Memories are made of this
Then add the wedding bells, one house where lovers dwell
Three little kids for the flavor, stir carefully through the days
See how the flavor stays
These are the dreams you will savor
With His blessings from above
Serve it generously with love
One man, one wife, one love through life
Memories are made of this
Memories are made of this

    i think this about an affair. hence the "stolen night of bliss" and the "grief"

    This song is reflective of memories throughout a lifetome of love between the singer and his partner. Starting with a first kiss and some tough times, right through marriage, children and building a life together. to call this one of Dean Martin's best is certainly true; but then, with thousands of recordings he made his own; some people might object to that characterization. no doubt his voice and talent will inspire for generations to come.

    The background vocals are hypnotizing; I think that it must be the Jordanaires. I can't figure out the other verses which they sing aside from Sweet, Sweet..., but if you listen and watch closely there are at least two other full verses. How the heck Dean Martin didn't lose track performing live with the three of them singing counterpoint in both his ears, I'll never know.
