Those were the days my friend

One night in Chicago, I marched home in sub-zero weather, several miles. Fortunately, by that time, I had learned how to dress from head to toe for arctic conditions... and I expect I had a bit of fury to warm me as I went. Never mind why. Those were days.

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 choose
We'd fight and never lose
Cause we were young and dumber than a post....
