8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
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 chose we'd fight and never 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.
