    The tune is led in the musical by Grizabella, a once-sophisticated feline who ended up living in the gutter alone and eager to impress the other cats.

    She sings a prelude of the song at the end of the first act, during which she recalls her life before she was ostracized from the community.

    Toward the end of the musical, she belts out the full version of the song as she begs to be accepted.

    It's not clear which version of the song Trump prefers. It was covered by Barbara Streisand and in a 2019 Hollywood remake of the film, which received scathing online reviews

    Trump denied the claims contained in the book in a Tuesday statement, which he also used as an opportunity to bash the author.

    ‘Stephanie didn’t have what it takes and that was obvious from the beginning,’ he said in a statement to The New York Times. He claimed she became ‘very angry and bitterafter ending a relationship.

    ‘She had big problems and we felt that she should work out those problems for herself. 今, みんなと同じように, she gets paid by a radical left-leaning publisher to say bad and untrue things.

    Lyrics to the Cats song Memories

    Memory

    Turn your face to the moonlight

    Let your memory lead you

    Open up enter in

    If you find there

    The meaning of what happiness is

    Then a new life will begin

    Memory

    All alone in the moonlight

    I can smile at the old days

    I was beautiful then

    I remember

    The time I knew what happiness was

    Let the memory

    Live again

    Burnt out ends of smoky days

    The stale cold smell of morning

    A street lamp dies

    Another night is over

    Another day is dawning

    Daylight

    I must wait for the sunrise

    I must think of a new life

    And I mustn’t give in

    When the dawn comes

    Tonight will be a memory too

    And a new day will begin

    Sunlight through the trees in summer

    Endless masquerading

    Like a flower as the dawn is breaking

    The memory is fading

    Touch me

    It’s so easy to leave me

    All alone with the memory

    Of my days in the sun

    If you touch me

    You’ll understand what happiness is

    見て, a new day

    Has begun
