Come And Get These Memories
Martha and the Vandellas Lyrics


Lover you've gone from me and left behind
So many memories

Here's your old friendship ring
I can't wear it no more
Here's your old love letters
I can't read 'em anymore

Lover you've gone from me and left behind
So many memories

Here's that old Teddy Bear (come and get 'em)
That you won for me at the State Fair
Here's some old Valentine cards (come and get 'em)
Give them to your new sweetheart

Lover you've gone from me and left behind
So many memories
So many memories

Lover you've gone from me and left behind
So many memories
So many memories (so many memories)

Here's your old favourite record
I can't stand to hear it no more (no more)
Here's some old lingering love (come and get 'em)
It's in my heart and it's tearing it apart
Because of these memories
I never thought of anybody but you
So come on and get 'em
'Cause I found me somebody new
And I love him

So come on and get these memories
(come and get 'em, since you've gone out of my life)
Come and get these memories, boy
(come and get 'em, since you've gone out of my life)
Give them to your new love...
Give them to your new love...

So come on and get these memories
(Come and get 'em since you've gone out of my life)

Give them to your new love...
Give them to your new love...

Spring of '63, I believe. Broke up with my boyfriend and this song said everything I was feeling, and put Martha and the Vandellas on the radio for us to enjoy.

Just like it was yesterday (1964) lol, I can remember sitting in the FOX Theatre, Downtown Detroit watching the MOTOWN REVIEW. I was the the tag along little sister lol I saw them all.. from the Miracles, The Temptations, Little Stevie Wonder, The Four Tops, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Marvin Gaye, The Marvelettes and the list goes on. The complete MOTOWN family of Stars. One of the most cherished memories of my childhood

Linda Schaffer. Cherished memories indeed. I have beautiful memories just having been a kid growing up listening to the music we love from that era. Surely having been there in person seeing all those โ€œcelebrities โ€œ was special indeed!

Margaret Ferguson

What a beautiful post, musically and visually. This music makes friends. When it's safe for parties to come back, this music will be the music of choice. Well done, VANDELLAS4U.
