THAT LOVELY WEEKEND (Moira & Ted Heath) Harry Roy & His Orchestra Also recorded by : Dorothy Carless; Billy Cotton; Demon Barbers; Geraldo & his Orch.; Ted Heath; Joe Loss & His Orch.; Vera Lynn. (Female voice singing) I haven’t said “Thanks” for that lovely weekend Those two days in heaven you helped me to spend The thrill of your kiss as you stepped off the train The smile in your eyes was like sun after rain. To mark the occasion we went out to dine Remember the laughter, the music, the wine That drive in the taxi when midnight had flown And breakfast next morning just we two alone You had to go, the time was so short We both had so much to say Your kit to be packed, the train to be caught, Sorry I cried but I just felt that way. And now you have gone dear this letter I pen My heart travels with you till we meet again Keep smiling, my darling, and someday we’ll spend A lifetime as sweet, a lifetime as sweet as That lovely weekend. (Orchestral interlude) (Male voice speaking) I haven’t said “Thanks” for that lovely weekend Those two days in heaven you helped me to spend And the thrill of your kiss as you stepped off the train The smile in your eyes was like sun after rain. And to mark the occasion we went out to dine Do you remember the laughter, how we laughed, and the music Harry Roy’s Band, and,and the wine, no champagne, just er just wine Then we waited a long time for a taxi, but we got one at last And then breakfast the next morning, just we two alone And then I had to go, and time was so short And we both had so much to say, and you packed my kit And the train had to be caught, and what a train, And then I cried, And now that you’ve gone dear, this letter I pen, My heart travels with you until we meet again So keep smiling my darling and someday we’ll spend A lifetime as sweet as that lovely weekend (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - October 2004) ********************* as rec by Issy Bonn 1942 My darling, here's my letter I'm writing through my tears, A few sweet words to thank you for lovely souvenirs; Memories you gave me still echo in my heart, I'll dream of them while we're apart! I haven't said thanks for that lovely weekend, Those two days of heaven you helped me to spend. The thrill of your kiss as you stepped off the train, The smile in your eyes was like sun after rain. To mark the occasion we went out to dine, Remember the laughter, the music, the wine. That drive in the taxi when midnight had flown, Then breakfast next morning, just we two alone. You had to go, the time was so short, We both had so much to say. Your kit to be packed, the train to be caught, Sorry I cried, but I just felt that way! And now you have gone, dear, this letter I pen, My heart travels with you till we meet again. Keep smiling, my darling, and someday we'll spend A lifetime as sweet as that lovely weekend. You had to go, the time was so short, And yet we both had so much to say to each other! And then I remembered, you suddenly said, "I'll be late!". We packed your kit, "Taxi!" "Station please!" "There's the train!" "Goodbye!". Sorry I cried, but I just felt that way! And now you have gone, dear, this letter I pen, My heart travels with you till we meet again. Keep smiling, my darling, and someday we'll spend A lifetime as sweet, With joy so complete. And then we'll repeat That lovely weekend! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - April 2011)
