By ginger baker and mike taylorWhen 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 hellDisguised as heaven.Those were the days, yes they were, those were the days.Those were their ways, miracles everywhere 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.Chorus
