Songtekst

MARY HOPKIN:

Once upon a time there was a tavern
Where we used to raise a glass or two
Remember how we laughed away the hours
Think 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

Lalalala lala
Lalalala lala
Lalalala lalalalalala

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
Those were the days
Oh yes, those were the days

Lalalala lala
Lalalala lala
Lalalala lalalalalala

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
Those were the days
Oh yes, those were the days

Lalalala lala
Lalalala lala
Lalalala lalalalalala

Lalalala lala
Lalalala lala
Lalalala lalalalalala

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
Those were the days
Oh yes, those were the days

Lalalala lala
Lalalala lala
Lalalala lalalalalala

Lalalala lala
Lalalala lala
Lalalala lalalalalala

Lalalalalala
Lalalalalala
Lalalalalala

Songinformatie

De oorspronkelijk Russische titel Dorogi dlinnoyu betekent De Lange Weg. Het liedje werd in 1925 voor het eerst op de plaat gezet door een toenmalige diva uit Georgië, Tamara Tsereteli.

In die tijd, tijdens het regime van Jozef Stalin dus, droeg de tekst een nogal anti-revolutionair sentiment uit. Het genre dat Tamara Tsereteli vertolkte, werd in 1929 bij wet in Rusland verboden, omdat Josef Stalin het als decadent bestempelde. Toen had een ander Russisch fenomeen, Alexander Vertinsky, zijn versie ook al op plaat gezet.

Er was in 1927 ook al een Finse uitvoering, door Martti Caram. In de jaren vijftig werd het opnieuw in het Fins gezongen, door Annikki Tahtiand. In 1958 zat het ook in de film The Brothers Karamazov, vertolkt door Maria Schell.

De eerste Engelstalige versie kwam van The Limeliters in 1962 als Those Were the Days. Vermoedelijk zag Paul McCartney in 1966 in de Blue Angel in Londen hoe het duo Gene and Francesca Raskin dit liedje ten gehore bracht. Paul McCartney kent het nummer dus oorspronkelijk in de uitvoering van Gene Raskin, echter met diens tekst.

Daarom wordt Gene Raskin ook beschouwd als de auteur van de hit die wij sinds 1968 kennen van Mary Hopkin.
