Lyrics verse:
SEEMS THAT I READ,
OR SOMEBODY SAID,
THAT OUT OF SIGHT
IS OUT OF MIND.
MAYBE THAT'S SO,
BUT I TRIED TO GO
AND LEAVE YOU
BEHIND,
WHAT DID I FIND?

Chorus:
I TOOK A TRIP
ON THE TRAIN,
AND
I THOUGHT ABOUT YOU.
I PASSED
A SHADOWY LANE,
AND
I THOUGHT ABOUT YOU.
TWO OR THREE CARS
PARKED
UNDER THE STARS,
A WINDING STREAM,
MOON SHINING DOWN
ON SOME LITTLE TOWN,
AND WITH EACH BEAM,
SAME OLD DREAM.
AT EV'RY STOP
THAT WE MADE,
OH,
I THOUGHT ABOUT YOU.
BUT WHEN
I PULLED DOWN
THE SHADE,
THEN
I REALLY FELT
BLUE.
I PEEKED
THROUGH THE CRACK
AND LOOKED
AT THE TRACK,
THE ONE GOING BACK
TO YOU,
AND WHAT DID I DO?
I THOUGHT ABOUT YOU!

Lyrics CATHEDRAL BELLS
WERE TOLLING
AND OUR HEARTS
SANG ON.
WAS IT THE SPELL
OF PARIS
OR THE APRIL DAWN?
WHO KNOWS
IF WE SHALL MEET AGAIN
BUT WHEN
THE MORNING CHIMES
RING SWEET AGAIN,
RING SWEET AGAIN...

I'LL BE SEEING YOU
IN ALL THE OLD
FAMILIAR PLACES
THAT THIS HEART
OF MINE EMBRACES
ALL DAY THRU:
IN THAT SMALL CAFE,
THE PARK
ACROSS THE WAY,
THE CHILDREN'S CAROUSEL,
THE CHESTNUT TREES,
THE WISHING WELL.
I'LL BE SEEING YOU
IN EV'RY LOVELY
SUMMER'S DAY,
IN EV'RY THING'S
THAT'S LIGHT AND GAY,
I'LL ALWAYS
THINK OF YOU THAT WAY.
I'LL FIND YOU
IN THE MORNING SUN
AND WHEN THE NIGHT IS NEW,
I'LL BE LOOKING
AT THE MOON
BUT I'LL BE SEEING YOU!

Lyrics REMEMBER THE LOVE SONG
YOU USED TO PLAY,
THE SONG THAT YOU'D PLAY
WHEN I USED TO SAY:
PLAY IT AGAIN, SAM
AND THEN
YOU WOULD PLAY IT AGAIN, SAM.
IT'S BEEN A FEW YEARS, SAM,
BUT NOW AND THEN,
I HAVE A FEW DRINKS
AND REMEMBER WHEN
I'D SIT HERE AND ASK YOU
TO PLAY IT AGAIN
AND AGAIN, SAM.

THE FIRST TIME I HEARD IT,
I HEARD IT WITH HER,
SAM, YOU REMEMBER,
HOW HAPPY WE WERE.
FUNNY WHAT MEMORIES
THAT SONG SEEMS TO STIR,
SO PLAY IT FOR ME
IN HER MEMORY.

I'VE NOBODY ELSE
BUT MYSELF TO BLAME
FOR KIDDING MYSELF,
'CAUSE THEY'RE ALL
THE SAME.
SHOULD BE A LAW
FOR WHAT HER KIND
OF DAME
DOES TO MEN, SAM.
WHAT'S OVER IS OVER,
I ALWAYS SAY,
I'LL JUST HAVE A DRINK
AND BE ON MY WAY.
ONLY CAME IN HERE
TO ASK YOU
TO PLAY IT AGAIN
AND AGAIN AND AGAIN
AND AGAIN, SAM.

Lyrics I REMEMBER
WHEN THE SUNLIGHT
HAD A SPECIAL KIND
OF BRIGHTNESS,
AND THE LAUGHTER
HELD A LOVER'S
KIND OF LIGHTNESS,
YELLOW DAYS,
YELLOW DAYS.
SHE WOULD HOLD ME
AND A SMILE
WOULD SPREAD AROUND US
SO COMPLETELY,
AND THE SOFTNESS
OF A KISS
WOULD LINGER SWEETLY.
YELLOW DAYS,
YELLOW DAYS.

BUT THEN CAME THUNDER
AND I HEARD HER
SAY GOODBYE
THROUGH TEARS OF WONDER
NOW I'M ALL ALONE
AND MY HEART
WANTS TO KNOW,
YELLOW DAYS,
WHERE'D YOU GO?

LIFE IS EMPTY
AND THE SUNLIGHT
SEEMS SO HARSH
INSTEAD OF TENDER,
AND THE LAUGHTER'S
JUST AN ECHO
I REMEMBER
FROM YELLOW DAYS,
YELLOW DAYS.

Spanish Lyric:
SE TE OLVIDA
QUE ME QUIRES
A PESAR
DE LO QUE DICES,
PUES ILEVAMOS
EN LA ALMA
CICATRICES,
IMPOSIBLES,
DE BORRAR.
SE TE OLVIDA
QUE HASTAPUEDO
HACERTE MAL
SI ME DECIDO,
PUES TU AMOR
LO TENGO
MUY COMPROMETIDO.
PERO A FUERZA,
NO SERA.

Y HOY RESULTA
QUE NO SOY
DE LA ESTATURA
DE TU VIDA
Y AL DEJARME CASI,
CASI SE TE OLVIDA,
QUE HAY
UN PACTO EN,
TRE LOS DOS.

DE MI PARTE
TE DE VUELVO
TO PROMESA
DE ADORRARME,
NI SI QUIERASIENTAS
PENA POR DEJARME
QUE ESE PACTO,
NO ES DIOS.
