Kui Lee, the composer of "I'll Remember You," was born in 1932, a mixture of Hawaiian, Chinese, and Scottish ancestry. He loved Hawaii and is said to have written this beautiful number when leaving it for one of his trips to work as an entertainer in mainland USA. He died on 3 December, 1966.
Lee was working as a doorman at a nightclub in Hawai'i, where Don Ho was a singer. Ho recorded Lee's song, probably in mid-1965 and released it as the B-side of a single on Reprise 0388 that same year. It also appeared on his album "The Don Ho Show!" (Reprise R/RS 6161). Ho died, aged almost 77, on 14 April 2007.



I'll Remember You
performed by:
Don Ho



I'll remember you
Long after this endless summer is gone
I'll be lonely oh so lonely
Leaving only me to remember you

I'll remember you
Your voice as soft as the warm summer breeze
Your sweet laughter, mornings after
Ever after, Ooooh, I'll remember you

To your arms someday I'll return to stay
Till then...

I will remember too
Every bright star we made wishes upon
Love me always, promise always
Ooooh, you'll remember too

(Instrumental)

To your arms someday I'll return to stay
Till then...

I will remember too
Every bright star we made wishes upon
Love me always, promise always
Ooooh, you'll remember too

( choir ) I'll remember you....

I'll remember you....
