Time flies: Mary Hopkin is 67 today

This is another one for the “time flies” category.

Mary Hopkin turns 67 today and that confirms that time flies and flies very fast.

Mary hit the charts in the summer of 1968 with “Those were the days” and “Goodbye” in early 1969.  

“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’d choose We’d fight and never lose
For we were young and sure to have our way
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’d choose We’d fight and never lose
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’d choose We’d fight and never lose
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’d choose We’d fight and never lose
Those were the days, oh yes, those were the days…”
