Days of Wine and Roses, The

Writer(s): Henry Mancini / Johnny Mercer

The days of wine and roses laugh and run away, like a child at play
Through a meadow land toward a closing door…
A door marked “Nevermore” that wasn’t there before.
The lonely night discloses just a passing breeze filled with memories
Of the golden smile that introduced me to
The days of wine and roses and you.
