Too Much Harmony THANKS
(Coslow, Johnston)

Thanks was an upbeat song about lost love written for Bing's movie Too Much Harmony. Bing recorded the song on Aug. 27, 1933, with the Jimmy Grier Orchestra. The song reached No. 2 on the pop charts for two weeks.

We used to dwell in love's own palace,
A palace of dreams come true.
Now that we're through I bear no malice,
Though we've called it a day
All I can say is
Thanks for all the lovely delights
I found in your embrace.
I'm thankful though I know
It's ending all too soon.
And thanks for unforgettable nights
I never can replace.
And memories that linger like a haunting tune.
It is better to have loved you dear and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
Yes it's better, for no matter what the cost
I held the world in sway, an emperor for a day
And thanks again for taking me on the road to paradise.
We lost our road, but still I must convey our thanks.

It is better to have loved you dear and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
Yes, its better, for no matter what the cost
I held the world in sway, an emperor for a day
And thanks again for taking me on the road to paradise.
We lost our way but still I must convey my thanks.
