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 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

Lyrics above from Those Were The Days, My Friend
This song, a top ten hit by Mary Hopkin in 1968, is way before my time. But it wasn't before my parents time, and I was the youngest child.
Today, while sorting through the day's pictures, that song popped into my head fully formed.
I probably haven't heard it for 30 years or more, yet there it was. I bet I could have written the lyrics from memory.
After spending way too long searching, I've decided it's Engelbert Humperdinck's voice crooning it in my head from a 1971 cover. Amazing what you can find on YouTube.
