    Lyrics

    (Gene Raskin)

    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 would 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.

    Then the busy years went rushing by us
    We lost our starry notions on the way
    If by chance I'd see you in the tavern
    We'd smile at one another and we'd say

    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 chose we'd fight and never lose
    Those were the days oh yes those were the days

    Just tonight I stood before the tavern
    Nothing seemed the way it used to be
    In the glass I saw a strange reflection
    Was that lonely follow really me

    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.

    Then the busy years went rushing by us
    We lost our starry notions on the way
    If by chance I'd see you in the tavern
    We'd smile at one another and we'd say.

    Through the door there came familiar laughter
    I saw your face and heard you call my name
    Oh, my friends we're older but no wiser
    For in our hearts our dreams are still the same.

    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.

    Then the busy years went rushing by us
    We lost our starry notions on the way
    If by chance I'd see you in the tavern
    We'd smile at one another and we'd say.

    La la la la la...
