One Short Song

on April 6, 2020

Sing me the songs I delighted to hear

Long, long ago, long ago.

Tell me the tales I remembered to read

Long long ago, long ago.

 

(I can’t remember the rest of this song.  Can any one fill me in, or better yet send me a new song?  I need help because all I hear these days is on the television and that is bad news.)

    Here’s a wonderful collaboration on a song. You may enjoy it.

    And here is a spoof on staying healthy in this crazy time. Hope you find if entertaining.https://youtu.be/WwT1_JJ-uw0

    And I believe these are the lyrics you were looking for. I found them in a google search. Enjoy!

    Lyrics
    Tell me the tales that to me were so dear
    Long, long ago, long, long ago
    Sing me the songs I delighted to hear
    Long, long ago, long ago
    Now you are come all my grief is removed
    Let me forget for how long you have roved
    Let me believe that you love as you loved
    Long, long ago, long ago
    Do you remember the path where we met
    Long, long ago, long, long ago
    Ah yes, you told me you ne’er forget
    Long, long ago, long ago
    Then, to all others, my smile you preferred
    Love, when you spoke, gave a charm to each word
    Still my heart treasures the praises I heard
    Long, long ago, long ago

  2. Hello, Joanne. What a lovely song- it looks like it was written in 1833. I found a version on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMUNxsbM6mw I hope you enjoy it. Best wishes, Brett
