Mary Hopkins-Those were the days

Song Friday!!!!!

Hey guys. So for this week, our song Friday is a song that I sang at my grade 7 play in 2007. This song fits this week perfectly because today I get my Matric results and it is finally time to say goodbye to my school and hello to my new one… When you in school, you really do not think that you will finish and here I am. 12 years of my life are over and as amazing as it feels to be able to follow my dreams, it is also sad to leave people and the location behind. So here it is, those were the days

lyrics: [ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/those-were-the-days-lyrics-mary-hopkins.html

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. La la la la… Those were the days, oh yes those were the days
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 For we were young and sure to have our way. La la la la… 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 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 For we were young and sure to have our way. La la la la… Those were the days, oh yes those were the days
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 For we were young and sure to have our way. La la la la… Those were the days, oh yes those were the days
