Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain across the ring, you roll away circle left
Do an allemande left, then allemande thar, go forward 2 and star
The men wheel right in with a right hand star, slip the clutch
Left allemande, dosado round your own
Left allemande, come back and promenade
Those were the days my friend, we thought they'd never end
Those were the days, oh yes, those were the days.


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade 1/2, walk in square thru 4
All the way then right & left thru my friend
Pass thru, trade by, then touch 1/4
Scoot back and then, you're gonna scoot back again
That corner swing and promenade
Those were the days my friend, we thought they'd never end
Those were the days, oh yes, those were the days.


TAG

We'd live the life we choose, we'd love and never lose
Those were the days, oh yes, those were the days.

Those Were The Days Lyrics ID: 164

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

Lyrics by Gene Raskin.
Recorded by The Limelighters (1963); Mary Hopkin (1968).
