Once upon a time there was a tavern.
Where we used to raise a glass or two.
Remember how we laughed away the hours.
And dreamed of all the great things we could do.
Those were the days my friend.
We thought they’d never end.
We’d sing and dance forever and a day.
We’d live the life we choose.
We’d fight and never lose.
For we were young and sure to have our way.
Those Were the Days
Mary Hopkin (1968)
