About The Song

l’ll Remember You” is a song written by Kui Lee in 1964. After he returned to Hawaii from the mainland United States in 1961, Lee worked at the night club Honey’s as a doorman. Lee taught himself to sing, and he started to compose songs. He convinced Don Ho, the son of the owner, to let him perform at the club.

Ho liked Lee’s original composition “I’ll Remember You”. He sang it at his live shows, and he eventually recorded his own version. Ho enjoyed success on the mainland, and Lee’s composition became popular. It was recorded by multiple acts, including Andy Williams and Elvis Presley.

Elvis recorded I’ll Remember You on June 10, 1966, at RCA’s Nashville studios. The song was a staple of his live performances in the 1970s. He sang I’ll Remember You in his 1973 TV special, Elvis: Aloha From Hawaii. (Video below)



🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤

I’ll remember you
Long after this endless summer has gone
I’ll be lonely, oh, so lonely
Living only to remember you
I’ll remember you
Your voice as soft as the warm summer breeze
Your sweet laughter, mornings after
Ever after, I’ll remember you
To your arms someday, I’ll return to stay
‘Til then I will remember too
Every bright star we made wishes upon
Love me always, promise always
Ooh, you’ll remember too
I’ll remember you
