Verse 1
Here's to the memories--
Of wedding serenades,
Jungle escapades,
Of travel reservations that were suddenly mislaid--
How lovely it's been!
Here's to the memories--
Of glances that adore,
Kisses on the floor,
Of breathless bouts of laughter at the Hotel del Amor--
How lovely it's been!
Watching the telly together,
Letting the phone go unanswered,
And bidding adieu to all others--
What could compare
To times we've shared?
So here's to the memories--
Of honeymoon delays,
Intimate soirees,
Of daring to be bold and take our chances, come what may--
How lovely it's been!
 
Verse 2
Here's to the memories--
Of Immigration woes;
Love's romantic glow;
Of high jinks on the dance floor that helped keep us on our toes--
How lovely it's been!
Here's to the memories--
Of Irish nights so rare;
Happiness to spare;
Of loving arms that offer peace and comfort in despair--
How lovely it's been!
Finding and losing a father
And sharing the heartache together;
And learning to lean on each other--
What could compare
To times we've shared?
So here's to the memories--
Of honeymoons for two;
Passion fired anew;
Of loving looks that promise all our dreams will soon come true.
Even after five years, I'm still in love with you--
How lovely it's been!
