Musical Tuesday's

This week I'm switching it up a bit with not a group of songs but just one. This one I found whilst listening to "Walking Back To Happiness" playlist on spotify. The song is called those were the days my friend and it's by Mary Hopkin. It is an old song from the late 1960's but oh what a beauty it is. It tells such a lovely tale so I thought I'd share it with you.

Without further ado, here it is.

Those Were The Days My Friend by Mary Hopkin



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 think 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.
La la la la...



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 choose
We'd fight and never lose
Those were the days, oh yes those were the days
La la la la...



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 woman 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
Those were the days, oh yes those were the days
La la la la...



Through the door there came familiar laughter

I saw your face and heard you call my name
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser
For in our hearts the 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
Those were the days, oh yes those were the days.
La la la la...

Favourite song at the moment?
