The Times of Your Life



In 1976 I hated our senior class song. It was by Paul Anka, who was old by our standards and used by Kodak for a tv commerical! The class before us chose We May Never Pass This Way Again by Seals and Croft... so much cooler...
after looking through boxes of old photos this week I thought back to this uncool song of my youth and of the times that have passed by and well, I can honestly say that I finally understand the lyrics of "The Times of Your Life"

Camella, Jeanne and Brad... Haines City, Fl




So thank you Paul for writing this beautiful and touching song...







Good morning, yesterday


You wake up and time has slipped away


And suddenly it's hard to find


The memories you left behind


Remember, do you remember




The laughter and the tears


The shadows of misty yesteryears


The good times and the bad you've seen


And all the others in between


Remember, do you remember


The times of your life (do you remember)




Reach back for the joy and the sorrow


Put them away in your mind


The mem'ries are time that you borrow


To spend when you get to tomorrow




Here comes the saddest part (comes the saddest part)


The seasons are passing one by one


So gather moments while you may


Collect the dreams you dream today


Remember, will you remember


The times of your life




Gather moments while you may


Collect the dreams you dream today


Remember, will you remember


The times of your life


Of your life


Of your life




Do you remember, baby


Do you remember the times of your life


Do you remember, baby


Do you remember the times of your life

I have stopped by to visit your site, meandering thru, stopping to reflect, nodding "oh, yes" in empathy and understanding. Thank you for your postings.
