Book of Memories
(Lyrics & Music by Rocky Michaels)

Once upon a time, many years ago
Little Tommy was brought into this earth
Said his father to his mother, it’s a feeling like no other
Thank you Lord, for giving us this birth.
Well Tommy grew up fast and he got himself a girl
And his whole world changed when he and Jen first kissed
It was after school one day by the oak tree where they’d play
And Tommy swore he’d never forget this

La–la–la–la La–la–la–la La–la–la–la-la
La-la–la–la La–la–la yeah–yeah
Moments come and moments go so take what you can seize
Life is a book of memories.

Well a few years down the road, he asked Jenny for her hand
Late one night with the moonlight sky above
Then the words he heard from her, he’d remember forever
“Yes, my darling. You’re the one I love.”
Well Tom and his new bride soon had a child of their own
And he remembers holding his newborn that first day
Saying “Son you are so sweet, ah you’ve made my life complete
And I wouldn’t want this any other way.”

Singing to him…

La–la–la–la La–la–la–la La–la–la–la-la
La-la–la–la La–la–la yeah–yeah
Moments come and moments go so take what you can seize
Son, life is your book of memories.

Well many years gone by and time has made him age
And ol’ Tom’s eyes they barely let him see
But he kept those pictures in his mind and as he turns the mental pages
He smiles thinking. “Life’s been good to me”

Oh, and he’s singing…

La–la–la–la La–la–la–la La–la–la–la-la
La-la–la–la La–la–la yeah–yeah
Moments come and moments go so take what you can seize
Life is a book of memories

Life is a book of memories
