Lesley Gore – The Old Crowd lyrics

Sometimes I get to thinkin' 'bout days gone by,
And I start cryin' every time.
What I wouldn't give if I could just relive
One day with those old friends of mine.
No one ever planned it, but every day at four
We would get together at the corner candy store,
We'd just ignore the sign, "No Dancing Allowed",
Oh, oh, oh, yeah, how I miss the old crowd.
Sally was the funny one, Sue wore the hippest clothes,
Eddy was the wise guy - there's always one of those!
Johnny used to sing off key, but, boy, he was loud!
Oh, oh, oh, yeah, how I miss the old crowd.
Well, now it is funny, when high school days are through
Friendships always come to an end.
Everybody tells you they'll keep in touch, yeah,
But you don't see them again, oh, no.
It's not that I'm unhappy, I know I still have you,
But I still think about those good times we knew.
We were so carefree then, our hearts were on a cloud,
Oh, oh, oh, yeah, how I miss the old crowd.
Oh, how I miss the old crowd.
Yeah, how I miss the old crowd.
(Fade out)
