Kinks – Schooldays lyrics
If ever you think about the happiest days of your lifeCast back your mind for a whileAnd remember the time when you were a child.Don’t think of things that make you sad,Just remember all the good times that you had.Do you remember only happy days,Full of flaming junes and summer holidays? Or do you remember those stormy novembersWhen we walked in the wind and the rain? Schooldays were such happy daysNow they seem so far away,I remember and I’ll always treasure.Schooldays were the happiest days of your lifeBut we never appreciate the good times we haveUntil it’s too late.I miss all the acquaintances we madeAnd I’d go back if I could only find a way,Schooldays were the happiest daysThough at the time they filled me with dismay.We only remember what we choose to remember.When I was a schoolboy I loathed regulations and rulesI hated my textbooks and my school uniform,’cos it made me conform,And teachers were always disobeyed,But I’d go back if I could only find a way.Schooldays were the happiest days,Now they seem so far away.I remember and I’ll always treasureSchooldays were the happiest days of your lifeBut we never appreciate the good times we haveUntil it’s too late.Now I wish I hadn’t strayed,And I’d go back if I could only find a way.Schooldays.
