Here's a song about living in the past
If it was so good then, how come it didn't last?
If it helps you, I'll put it in a phrase
Those were the times but these are the days

These are the days, these are the days
These are the days, these are the days
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

The times you're smiling back on, had that great sitcom
It hardly compensated for the terror of the bomb
Let me help 'cause you're looking through a haze
Those were the times, these are the days

These are the days, hey, hey, hey
These are the days, can you hear me now?
These are the days, look around, look around, look around
These are the days

These are the days, hey, hey live today
These are the days, it's time to put the past away
These are the days, the more you do the more you say
These are the days, the more I need to get away

You're longing for a time there never was, now tell me the truth
You're looking for the reason it's because, you're fighting for youth
But if I have to listen any more to fantasy talk
Or any other bug you have, I am leaving

Now I'm not saying everything is really great
(Hey, hey, hey)
After sixteen years of legalized class hate
Why waste time looking back for things to praise?
(Hey, hey, hey)
Those were the times huh, but these are the days

These are the days, looking back in history
These are the days, time to get contemporary
These are the days, the past is not the place to be
These are the days

These are the days, hey, hey live today
These are the days, it's time to put the past away
These are the days, the more you do the more you say
These are the days, the more I need to get away

Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
