As one once so young
With the music playing
And the words repeating over and again,
Those Were The Days My Friend -
We Thought They Would Never End...
Only thing is My Friend
Ah Yes Those were the days
And they have ended
Only memory now calls of those days long, long ago
As memory recalls the lane we used to travel upon
The gathering of the water under the stars
From a well so deep, oh so deep
Ever Faithful the name of the well
Where we would gather precious drops of water
As the stars in the heavens danced
By the light of the moon.
Ah Yes Those Were The Days My Friend
We Would Sing and Dance
With wild breezes blowing through vast the Country
The sky from the hillside
So deep, so deep the midnight blue
Midnight blue so dark that black the sky of night
And the stars so close that one only had to reach
And there by the sky of night touched -
Brought close to the heart
Starbright, starbright wishing on a star so bright
Those moments now linger on, now linger on...
In memory for Those Were The Days My Friend
We Thought They Would Never End
And now as long the years have passed
In a heartbeat the years have passed
And only memory lingers to be recalled
I can't believe that Those Were The Days
A past that oh to be lived again to be lived...
But Those Were The Days
Never more to be again.
