Those were the days my friend......



Yeah, I still feel like flinging the gherkin from my Cheeseburger up onto the window at McDonalds Family Restaurant once in a while..just like in the old days..back when my friends were making about 5 bux an hour cleaning the place....Actually..to tell you the truth..it was not me doing that..it was the company of friends I was with. It all kind of makes me reminisce...
Those Were The Days, My Friend

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
Di di di di di di
Di di di di di di
Di di di di di di di di di di
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
Di di di di di di
Di di di di di di
Di di di di di di di di di di
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
Di di di di di di
Di di di di di di
Di di di di di di di di di di
Di di di di di di
Di di di di di di
Di di di di di di di di di di
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
Di di di di di di
Di di di di di di
Di di di di di di di di di di
Di di di di di di
Di di di di di di
Di di di di di di di di di di
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la

Lucy said...

Rebecca, you are cool!!
Rebecca and Cassie are friedns??
(not just netfriends)
My English is not good. So I can't
read your blogs rightly......sorry.

When I was a single woman, I was really into moterbikes. I had XR250 Australia type. Now, I am old and I have to take care my sons, then, I am afraid of breaking my legs.
Therefore I can't ride moterbikes now.

It is funny that you can come to Cazzie's Blog for some nice photos of Rebecca.

I would like to see a photo of bec riding the bike and doing a mono.

Jay said...

That looks like a fun time. I always say that I may grow older, but I refuse to grow up.

Dr Evil said...

Bec-that photo doesn't do you justice, you saucy motorbike wench!

Cazzie-gerkins thrown at Macca's windows.....priceless!

Hi Cazzie,
Given the bike can only hold about 90kg, and I am well over that mark, I didn;t ride the bike.

Hi Lucy,
Your English is better that some people who only speak English. Bikes are cool, I bet your kids would love to see you riding one.
Japan makes the best bikes in my opinion. At the moment I am on a Honda, but before that I was always on a Kawasaki, so I have a kindship with your home.

Hi Huggies,
Is the nice pictures as apposed to the dirty ones you can find on Rachy's site?
As for doing a mono on that bike, I don't think so.

Hi Jay,
I agree. I still believe in Santa Claus, and I will never stop believing. It is the spirit of the thing.

Hi Dr. Evil, Yes I know, I still have to do the naked on the bike thing. But first, I need to lose 20-30kgs somewhere.

HooRoo
Rebecca

The photo of the big kid on the green bike has made my day :-)

No "Helmet Hair" eh?

Cazzie!!! said...

Lucy, you are welcome anytime :)

Mr Huggies, a mono would be a fun picture of Rebecca, standing on one leg is hard though, when you are trying to balance two pre-schoolers in each arm!

Yes Jay, we are all kids at heart, may I say, we regress as we get older too :)

Dr Evil, motorbike wench and gerkins in the same sentence, lol, that is funny too.

Rebecca, can I do a blog entry on your blog too? It would be fun, and may I say.....Cheers Cazzie!!! Instead of Blogout, Hooroo, Rebecca at the end ?

Lantern.....hat hair would still beat the crap out of pillow hair...ask The Rachy...LOL...cure for hospital hair is this....a satin pillow case :)

I think Rebecca needs a smaller bike.
