'Halcyon Days'                                  by Martin Day

        Those were the days, halcyon days,
        Life was much better than what we have now
        Those were the days, golden the rays
        Simpler and better than now.

Do you remember that girl at the pub
You tried to chat up at the bar.
We bought you a pint glass of washing up suds
Later you puked in her car...

Do you remember that chemistry class
We made a bomb as a joke
We would have been caught if the teacher had not
had an asthma attach from the smoke...


Do you remember the shop keeper's face
When you nicked a box of 'Milk Tray'
He tried hard to kick you as you legged it past
but just took out his specials display

Do you remember the view from my room
And the girl who lived over from me
She would undress with her curtain undrawn
And you would sell tickets to see

        (... Life was much better, before I first met her,
        Simpler and better than now.)
