Thread Name: Lyr Req: Remember Me (When the Candle...(Wiseman)
Subject: RE: lyrics to 'Remember Me'(When the candle
FWIW:
Scott(y) stated that he wrote the song in 1939
and the Title was taken from a sentimental memento
of the Gay Nineties, a fancy cup and saucer with
Gold lettering, 'REMEMBER ME', on it; a souvenir
somehow connected to the courtship of his Mother and
Dad. The children were never allowed to touch it.
He wrote it, while feeling a bit homesick and
sentimental during the road trips between radio
shows and personal appearances.
The lyrics were not intended to apply to any
particular person.
