Nickels and dimes, memories and wine
She's on his mind once again
The same ol' stew, the same ol' fool
Played by the rules but didn't win
There's an old love in his heart that he can't lose
He tried forgettin' but he knows that it's no use

He's got a fool hearted memory
It won't let him see, that she walked out the door
He's got a fool hearted memory, he sits patiently
Here every night so it can fool him more

She was his girl, his only world
That string of pearls that slipped away
A thousand dimes, a thousand times
He doesn't mind what they say
He fills the jukebox, then plays the same ol' song
He fills his glass and then he turns her memory on

But it's a fool hearted memory
It won't let him see, that she walked out the door
He's got a fool hearted memory, he sits patiently
Here every night so it can fool him more

MEVIS, BLAKE / HILL, BYRON
