Dean Martin (June 7, 1917 — December 25, 1995) was an American singer, film actor and comedian. Martin’s hit singles included “Memories Are Made of This”, “That’s Amore”, “Everybody Loves Somebody”, “Mambo Italiano”, “Sway”, “Volare” and “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head?”. Nicknamed the “King of Cool”, he was one of the members of the “Rat Pack” and a major star in four areas of show business: concert stage/night clubs, recordings, motion pictures, and television.
Nancy Sandra Sinatra (born June 8, 1940) is an American singer and actress. She is the daughter of singer/actor Frank Sinatra, and remains known for her 1966 signature hit “These Boots Are Made for Walkin'” and her cover of Cher’s “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” (lyrics and music by Sonny Bono), which was used as the opening sequence theme in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill.
Her other popular recordings include “Sugar Town”, “How Does That Grab You, Darlin’?” and the theme from the James Bond film, You Only Live Twice.
Sinatra began her career as a singer and actress in the early 1960s, but initially achieved success only in Europe and Japan. Then she had a transatlantic number-one hit with “These Boots Are Made for Walkin'”, which showed her provocative but good-natured style, and which popularized and made her synonymous with go-go boots. The promo clip featured a big-haired Sinatra and six young women in tight tops, go-go boots and mini-skirts. The song was written by Lee Hazlewood, who wrote and produced most of her hits and sang with her on several duets, including “Some Velvet Morning”. In 1966 and 1967, Sinatra charted with 13 titles, all of which featured Billy Strange as arranger and conductor.
In 1967 she paired with her father, Frank Sinatra, for her second number-one single, “Somethin’ Stupid”. She also co-starred with Elvis Presley in the movie Speedway.

Every night I sit here by my window (window)
Staring at the lonely avenue (avenue)
Watching lovers holdin’ hands
And laughin’ (ha ha ha)
Thinkin’ ’bout the things we used to do
(Thinkin’ ’bout things)
Like a walk in the park (things)
Like a kiss in the dark (things)
Like a sailboat ride (ya ya)
What about the night we cried
Things like a lover’s vow
Things that we don’t do now
Thinkin’ ’bout the things we used to do

Memories are all I have to cling to (cling to)
And heartaches are the friends
I’m talkin’ to (but you got me now)
When I’m not thinkin’ of just how much
I love you (’bout I love you, too)
I’m thinkin’ the things we used to do
(Used to do, thinkin’ ’bout things)
Like a walk in the park (things)
Like a kiss in the dark (things)
Like a sailboat ride (ya ya)
What about the night we cried
Things like a lover’s vow
Things that we don’t do now
Thinkin’ about the things we used to do

I still can hear the juke box softly
Playin’ (playin’)
And the face I see each day belongs to you
(Belongs to you)
But there’s not a single sound
And there’s nobody else around
But that’s just me thinkin’ ’bout the things we used to do
(We used to do, thinkin’ ’bout things)
Like a walk in the park (things)
Like a kiss in the dark (things)
Like a sailboat ride (ya ya)
What about the night that we cried
Things like a lover’s vow
Things that we don’t do now
Thinkin’ about the things we used to do
And heartaches are the friends I’m talkin’ to
You got me thinkin’ ’bout
The things we used to do (I hope so)
Thinkin’ ’bout the things we used to do.
