There was a time when we could dance until a quarter to ten.

We never thought it would end then, we never thought it would end.

We used to carry on and drink and do the rock and roll.
We never thought we get older

We’d never thought it'd grow cold but now
Down by the sea she knew a sailor who had been to war.
She never even knew a sailor before, she never even knew his name.
He'd come to town and he would pound her for a couple of days
And then he'd sail across the bubbly waves and those
And those were happier days, but now
