Long Long Ago


Back in the days when the mountains were new,

Long long ago,

Love then was faithful and steadfast and true,

Long ago.

Manners were graceful and knights were bold,

In the age of gold.

Those were the days when romance came and grew

And hearts had not grown cold.

Long, long ago.


We’ve said farewell to the years that have flown,

Long long ago.

Gone with the roses and lilies now blown,

Long ago.

Could we recall all the loveliness

Back to this world of distress,

We should be happy and tears be unknown,

Each care a brief caress,

Long long ago.


(Song from ‘The King of Bumblesting’: set to music.)
