Can you tell me where I can find the lyrics to this song? The verses ended with: "Do you remember? Yes, I remember. Well, dearie, you're much older than I."

Golly Charles, I haven't done this song in fifty years. I'm not which version you want, however, the one we used to do went something like this:

Dearie, do you remember when we waltzed to the Sousa Band,
My wasn't the music grand.
Chowder party's down by the sea side,
Every fourth of July,
Test your memory my dearie
Do you recall when Henry Ford couldn't even fix,
The running board under a Chandler six.
Dearie, life was cheery,
In those good old days gone bye
Do you remember, if you remember,
Well dearie you'er much older than I.

Dearie, do you remember when the Met led Curosa sing,
My didn't the rafters ring.
Diamond Jim was there in a horse shoe,
Catching everyone's eye.
Test your memory my dearie
Do you recall when Gilda Grey did the shimmy shake,
That's what started the Frisco quake.
Dearie, life was cheery,
In those good old days gone bye,
Do you remember, if you remember,
Well dearie you'er much older than I.

I may have these mixed up a bit and I sort of have the feeling that there was a third verse.

Cap't Bob

I'm not sure why we have a duplicate thread here, but may I say thanks to Joe, Kendall, Capt Bob and Iodine for their help. I did see the High School version when I was searching but it just had the words they'd written to promote the past glories of their school. Capt Bob's lyrics sound just about right to me. Thanks again for your help when all my other Net searching failed! I do a lot of entertaining at seniors' residences and personal care homes and thought this song would be a good way to introduce some memory-stirring songs.

--Is there a way to merge these two threads?--

Yeah, Charles, I'll merge the threads when I get a moment. Come back in an hour or so. I'm in the process of transcribing what I found on a recording.

Well, Charles, I think this (click) is a start. All I have it the fragment they provided, and I don't know if it's the real lyrics or an adaptation for their purposes.
-Joe Offer-

Dearie, do you remember when we started to Senior Hi

way back in days gone by?

Bonfire rallies, booster pep-sessions kept our spirits up high,

test your memory, my Dearie.

Do you remember when our team went on up to state,

that was the year that was really great,

Dearie, life was cheerie, in the good 'ole days gone by.

Do you remember?

If you remember.

Well, Dearie, you're much older than I!

DEARIE
(Bob Hilliard & Dave Mann, 1950)

Dearie, do you remember when we waltzed to the Sousa Band,
My, wasn't the music grand.
Chowder parties down by the seashore,
Every Fourth of July.
Test your memory,
My dearie, do you recall when Henry Ford couldn't even fix,
The running board under a Chandler six.
Dearie, life was cheery,
In the good old days gone by.
Do you remember, if you remember,
Well, dearie, you're much older than I.

[Instrumental break]

Dearie, do you remember when we stayed up all night to get
Pittsburgh on a crystal set
Keystone movies, Coogan and Chaplin
Made you laugh and then cry.
Test your memory,
My dearie, do you remember watching John L. win every fight
'Cause nobody ducked from Sullivan's right.
Dearie, life was cheery,
In the good old days gone by.
Do you remember, if you remember,
Well, dearie, you're much older than I.

[Instrumental to end]

Transcribed from a 1950 Guy Lombardo recording. Also recorded by Jo Stafford & Gordon MacRae, Lisa Kirk, and by Ray Bolger & Ether Merman.

There could well be other verses, but this was what was on the Guy Lombardo recording.

Thanks, Joe, for your patience, your memory AND your record collection. Maybe I could combine these Guy Lombardo lyrics with the second verse from Capt Bob and extend the song a bit. Thanks again to both of you.

DEARIE
(Bob Hilliard and Dave Mann - 1950)

Dearie, do you remember when we waltzed to the Sousa band?
My, wasn't the music grand?
Chowder parties down by the seashore ev'ry Fourth of July?
Test your memory, my Dearie.
Do you recall when Henry Ford couldn't even fix
A running board under a Chandler "Six"?

CHORUS: Dearie, life was cheery
In the good old days gone by.
Do you remember? If you remember,
Well, Dearie, you're much older than I.

Dearie, do you remember when we stayed up all night
To get Pittsburgh on a crystal set?
Keystone movies, Coogan and Chaplin, made you laugh, then cry.
Test your memory, my Dearie.
Do you recall when Orville Wright flew at Kitty Hawk?
Well, take it from me, I would rather walk! CHORUS

Dearie, do you remember when most gents owned a pair of spats,
Wing collars, and derby hats?
Lovely ladies swinging their bustles made those gentlemen sigh.
Test your memory, my Dearie.
Do you remember watching John L. win ev'ry fight?
'Cause nobody ducked from Sullivan's right! CHORUS

Dearie, do you remember when the Met let Caruso sing?
My, didn't the rafters ring?
Diamond Jim was there in the Horseshoe Catching everyone's eye
Test your memory, my Dearie.
Do you recall when Gilda Gray did the shimmy-shake?
And that was the start of the Frisco Quake. CHORUS

Dearie, do you remember how they loved Harry Lauder's act?
My, wasn't the Palace packed?
Jenny Lind presented by Barnum sang her sweet lullaby.
Test your memory, my Dearie.
Chicago all in flames sure caused a terrific row.
They blamed it on Missus O'Leary's cow! CHORUS

Dearie, do you remember Man O' War winning every race?
He ran at a record pace.
Rin Tin Tin in serial chapters always rescued the guy.
Test your memory, my Dearie.
Do you recall when Babe Ruth pitched for the Boston team?
He sure had a curve that was loaded with steam. CHORUS

Thanks, folks, especially Jim Dixon, for posting lyrics to this song.

Now, can someone post a MIDI or a link to an MP3?

I can remember how the tune goes for everything except the third line of the verse (e.g., "Chowder parties down by the seashore ev'ry Fourth of July?").
