GOOD OLD DAYS
Words and music by Ron Eckberg
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
Aw, the good old days,
The good old days
Remember when, take me back again
To the good old days
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
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
Or could it be that those memories
Aren’t all as good as we remember them to be
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.
