Verse:
Once up - on a time there was a ta - vern,
Where we used to raise a glass or two.
Re - mem - ber how we laughed a - way the hours,
And dreamed of all the great things we would do.

Chorus:
Those were the days my friend. We thought they'd ne - ver end,
We'd sing and dance for - ev - er and a day.
We'd live the life we chose we'd fight and ne - ver lose,
For we were young and sure to have our way.
La la la la la la la la la la la la,
Those Were The Days, oh yes, those were the days.
