GOOD OLD DAYS

Words and music by Ron Eckberg

 

Verse 1

Do you remember those lazy summer days?

So very long and so very far away

We were young and Oh, so innocent

Dreaming a dream that we dreamed would never end

 

(Chorus)

Aw, the good old days,

The good old days

Remember when, take me back again

To the good old days

 

(Verse 2)

Do you remember when Elvis ruled the land?

Before the Beatles sang

“I want to hold your hand”

Larry Lujack on my transistor radio

Buddy Holly on my high-fi stereo


(Chorus)

 

(Verse 3)

Do you remember those black and white TV sets?

Ricky and David and Ozzie and Harriet

Andy and Opie, Aunt Bea and Barney Fife

Lucy and Dezi, To Tell the Truth, This is Your Life

 

(Chorus)

 

(Bridge)

Or could it be that those memories

Aren’t all as good as we remember them to be

 

(Verse 4)

Do you remember Sputnik and the Berlin Wall

Khrushchev and Kennedy way back when the war was cold

Bomb shelters and underneath the bed we hide

Dark days in Dallas but the Beatles brought us back to life.

 

(Chorus)
