Lyrics
I know he'll never be forgotten


Long as there's still sound


He was a king uncrowned


Not all kings are given crowns


I know I'll always remember


Always


The warmth


All his warmth


Of his sound


Was in his sound


Lingers so long I'm sure he's still around


Still around... Those who've heard


For all those who've heard


Truly, they repeat him yet


Even yet


So those who hear won't forget


And the ever-present sound


That abounds in his praise


Echos throughout the universe


For endless spans of time uncountable


By days


The pretty little piquant passages


Clifford played


They are with us now


And I'm positive that they will endure


Should time and sacred circumstance allow


Yes, they'll live forever


Oh, yes, I remember Clifford now


Seems I always feel that Clifford's spirit's


Hangin' roun' me somehow


We remember


Each and every single day


I hear his lovely trumpet tone


Such exquisite singing


In every horn that seems to have a sound


That's all its own


So somebody tell me how


How can we ever day for certain


Someone that played


Like Clifford Brown could play


Could really be said to have gone away


I only know that I hear him now


And I believe that I always will


You've got to believe


I remember Clifford still, yes I hear him still


I know he'll never be forgotten


He was a king uncrowned


I know I'll always remember

'
Member Clifford Brown


I'll always remember Clifford Brown
