Lyrics ,Music:Irving Berlin

The song was publishe 1925.

The song is a popular standard, recorded by numerous artists.
In the lyric, Berlin uses an interesting poetic technique
by extending the sound of the word "forgot" into
"forget me not" then placing the original word (forgot)
and the base form of its opposite (remember)
at the end of the next two lines:

Remember we found a lonely spot,
And after I learned to care a lot,
You promised that you'd forget me not,
But you forgot
To remember.

Making a very satisfying ending (happy ending).

One little kiss, a moment of bliss, then hours of deep regret
One little smile, and after a while, a longing to forget
One little heartache left as a token
One little plaything carelessly broken

Remember the night, the night you said, "I love you"

Remember you vowed by all the stars above you

Remember we found a lonely spot
And after I learned to care a lot

You promised that you'd forget me not
But you forgot to remember

Into my dreams you wandered it seems, and then there came a day
You loved me too, my dreams had come true, and all the world was May
But soon the Maytime turned to December
You had forgotten, do you remember?
