Those Were The Days

This song is by Cream and appears on the album Wheels of Fire (1968) and on the box set Those Were the Days (1997).


When the city of Atlantis
Stood serene above the sea
Long time before our time
When the world was free
Those were the days

Golden cymbals flying
On ocarina sounds
Before wild Medusa's serpents
Gave birth to hell
Disguised as heaven

Those were the days (Yes, they were)
Those were the days
Those were their ways
Miracles everywhere-where are they now?
They're gone
Those were their ways (Yes, they were)
Those were their ways
Those were the days (Yes, they were)
Those were the days

Tie your painted shoes and dance
Blue daylight in your hair
Overhead a noiseless eagle
Fans a flame
Wonder everywhere

Those were the days (Yes, they were)
Those were the days
Those were their ways
Miracles everywhere-where are they now?
They're gone
Those were their ways (Yes, they were)
Those were their ways
Those were the days (Yes, they were)
Those were the days
