Moments To Remember
The Four Lads Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

January to December
We'll have moments to remember

Uh
The New Year's Eve we did the town
The day we tore the goal post down
We'll have these moments to remember
The quiet walks, the noisy fun
The ballroom prize we almost won
We will have these moments to remember

Though summer turns to winter
And the present disappears
The laughter we were glad to share
Will echo through the years

When other nights and other days
May find us gone our separate ways
We will have these moments to remember

The drive in movie where we'd go
And somehow never watched the show
We will have these moments to remember

Though summer turns to winter
And the present disappears
The laughter we were glad to share
Will echo through the years

When other nights and other days




May find us gone our separate ways
We will have these moments to remember

Line by Line Meaning

January to December
Throughout the entire year


We'll have moments to remember
We will cherish memories that will last forever


The New Year's Eve we did the town
The night we partied hard to celebrate the new year


The day we tore the goal post down
The day we won a game and celebrated by tearing down the goal post


We'll have these moments to remember
We will always remember these exciting moments


The quiet walks, the noisy fun
The peaceful walks and the lively, fun times we shared


The ballroom prize we almost won
The competition we participated in and almost won


We will have these moments to remember
We will forever remember these fond memories


Though summer turns to winter
Even as time passes and the seasons change


And the present disappears
And the current moment fades away


The laughter we were glad to share
The joy that we shared and were grateful for


Will echo through the years
Will continue to be remembered and cherished for many years


When other nights and other days
During times when we are apart


May find us gone our separate ways
We may not be together physically


We will have these moments to remember
But we will always have these special moments to hold onto


The drive-in movie where we'd go
The place we used to go watch movies from our car


And somehow never watched the show
But for some reason, we didn't fully pay attention to the movie


We will have these moments to remember
We will always cherish these memories

MOMENTS TO REMEMBER

(January to December)
(We'll have moments to remember)

The New Year's Eve we did the town
The day we tore the goal post down
We will have these moments to remember

The quiet walks, the noisy fun
The ballroom prize we almost won
We will have these moments to remember

Though summer turns to winter
And the present disappears
The laughter we were glad to share
Will echo through the years

When other nights and other days
May find us gone our secret ways
We will have these moments to remember

(The drive in movie where we'd go)
(And somehow never watched the show)
We will have these moments to remember

Though summer turns to winter
And the present disappears
The laughter we were glad to share
Will echo through the years

When other nights and other days
May find us gone our secret ways
We will have these moments to remember
(We will do this dear companion, even in another dimension)

MOMENTOS PARA RECORDAR

(Janeiro-dezembro)
(Nós vamos ter momentos para recordar)

Véspera de Ano Novo que fizemos a cidade
O dia em que arrancamos o poste da baliza
Teremos esses momentos para recordar

Os passeios tranquilos, a diversão ruidosa
O prêmio de salão que quase vencemos
Teremos esses momentos para recordar

Embora o verão se torne inverno
E o presente desapareça
O riso que estávamos contentes por partilharmos
Ecoarão através dos anos

Quando as outras noites e outros dias
Puder nos encontrar em caminhos separados
Teremos esses momentos para recordar

(O drive-in onde íamos)
(E nunca assistimos show algum)
Teremos esses momentos para recordar

Embora o verão se torne inverno
E o presente desapareça
O riso que estávamos contentes por partilharmos
Ecoarão através dos anos

Quando as outras noites e outros dias
Puder nos encontrar em caminhos separados
Teremos esses momentos para recordar

Brings tears. So nostalgic and such a beautiful melody. Today's music can't compare.

Ain’t that the truth.

@CaseyBraydenLevi

This was my Grandfather’s class song in 1959 when he graduated. He sang it for the class, and when he did, all the girls cried because of how beautiful of a singer he was.

@daviddonaldson3050

This is a beautiful thing to write. It reminds me of our days of Shangri-la.........
