Forget Me Not
Martha Reeves & The Vandellas Lyrics


Now we kiss good-bye
you'll be off to war, the battle's on
I don't wanna cry as I stand
And watch your ship sail on
Now when you're out to sea
And the sky is dark and water surrounds you
And your heart just won't be 'cause you feel
As if our loneliness will drive you

Forget me not, boy
Let my love comfort you
Comfort you and see you through
Forget me not, boy
Lock my memory in your heart
And we'll never be apart

Remember Old Joe's,
Our favorite song, our table for two
Well, heaven knows, these little things
I'll share with no one but you
Wherever you are, no land
And sea and time will divide us
No matter how far
Back to each other's arms our love's gonna guide us

Forget me not, boy
Write a letter every day
Don't throw my picture away
Forget me not, boy
Let my love within you burn
I'll be here when you return

Each night I will pray for peace on earth, goodwill to all men
And my little heart will say these tender words time and time again:

Forget me not, boy
Let my love within you burn
I'll be here when you return
Forget me not, boy
Lock my memory in your heart
And we'll never be apart
Forget me not, boy

I have NO IDEA what the Euros see (OR HEAR) in this album throwaway. But they made it a hit in 1971. Stoopid.
