Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain across and turn 'em
Now roll away and circle round the ring
Allemande left, allemande thar, forward two and star
Boys wheel right in, with a right hand in
Slip the clutch, left allemande, now dosado 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    Basic, corner progression

1 & 3 you promenade go halfway
In the middle star thru, California twirl
Swing thru the outside two, the boys will run
You do a couples trade, and then you wheel & deal
Dive thru, pass thru, your corner lady swing
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

Those Were The Days
 
 

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).
