D            Bm                Em7                   A7sus4   A7
I'll never forget the moment we kissed the night of the hay - ride,

D             Bm                    Em7                 A7sus4  A7
The way that we hugged to try to keep warm while taking a sleigh-ride


Refrain:

D     F#m       G        G9         A7/9   A7
Magic moments, mem'ries we've been shar - ing,

D     F#m       G        G9        A7/9   A7
Magic moments, when two hearts are car - ing.

D    Am7  D7   Am7  D7  G6   G  C9
Time can't e - rase the mem'-ry of 

      D    D6 F#m   F#m7   G     Edim   D
Those mag - ic  mo - ments filled with love.



D           Bm                    Em7              A7sus4  A7
The telephone call that tied up the line for hours and ho - urs;

D           Bm                 Em7                  A7sus4  A7
The Saturday dance I got up the nerve to send you some flow - ers


Repeat Refrain:



D              Bm                  Em7                A7sus4 A7
The way that we cheered whenever our team was scoring a touch-down;

D               Bm                   Em7                A7sus4  A7
The time that the floor fell out of my car when I put the clutch down



Repeat Refrain:


D          Bm                     Em7                   A7sus4  A7
The penny arcade, the games that we played, the fun and the pri - zes,

D           Bm                Em7               A7sus4  A7
The halloween hop when ev'ryone came in funny dis - gui - ses


Repeat Refrain:


Como died May 12, 2001, at the age of 87. Described by his idol, Bing Crosby, as "the man who invented casual," Como had his first hit in 1945 and was still charting as late as the 1970's.
