The Proclaimers A Long Long Long Time Ago Lyrics

Last updated:

Yesterday arrived too quickly
Caught me right off guard
My defence moved in too slowly
Missed it by a yard
I'd just settled down
With a bottle of gin
So I moved on to whiskey
And it hit me again
Memories were raining punches
Down on my head
Knocked me into the past so quickly
They almost raised the dead
So I drank some more booze
And it helped me to sleep
Where I dreamed of my youth
And the secrets I keep

Oh history is a friend of mine
She comes over to my place
And we have a good time
But the memories
She sometimes brings with her
Get out of line
They're out of line

Show me things I don't want to see
(Wanna see, wanna see, wanne see)
Remind me of who I thought I was gonna be
(Ganna be, gonna be, gonna be)
Take me places I used to go
(Used to go, used to go)
A long long time ago

When I woke I remembered nothing
Suppose that's just as well
And although my head was aching
I could hear a bell
So I put on some clothes
And I reached my front door
When I pulled it wide open
She joined me once more

Oh history is a friend of mine
She comes over to my place
And we have a good time
But the memories
She sometimes brings with her
Get out of line
They're out of line

Show me things I don't want to see
(Wanna see, wanna see, wanna see)
Remind me of who I thought I was gonna be
(Ganna be, gonna be, gonna be)
Take me places I used to go
(Used to go, used to go)
A long long time ago
A long long time ago
