Song Lyric Sunday 2nd December

Helen has given us the theme of Last this week.

ABBA was one of, if not the only, best thing to come out of Eurovision when they won with Waterloo in 1974. Our entry was Olivia Newton John with Long Live Love and she hit a bum note in the first stanza.

I loved Abba’s music and had all their albums.
Our Last Summer comes from the Super Trouper Album. I particularly liked this track and sang along. I can still remember the words!!!! Especially Harry the football fan!

Abba: “Our Last Summer”

Writer(s): ALEKSEJ ANATOLEVICH KORTNEV, BJOERN K. ULVAEUS, BENNY GORAN BROR ANDERSSON

The summer air was soft and warm
The feeling right
The Paris night
Did it’s best to please us
And strolling down the Élysées
We had a drink in each café

And you
You talked of politics, philosophy
And I smiled like Mona Lisa
We had our chance
It was a fine and true romance

I can still recall our last summer
I still see it all
Walks along the Seine
Laughing in the rain
Our last summer
Memories that remain

We made our way along the river
And we sat down in the grass
By the Eiffel tower
I was so happy we had met
It was the age of no regret
Oh yes

Those crazy years
That was the time of the flower power
But underneath we had a fear of flying
Of getting old, a fear of slowly dying
We took the chance
Like we were dancing our last dance

I can still recall our last summer
I still see it all
In the tourist jam
‘Round the Notre Dame
Our last summer
Walking hand in hand

Paris restaurants
Our last summer
Morning croissants
Living for the day
Worries far away
Our last summer
We could laugh and play

And now you’re working in a bank
The family man, the football fan
And your name is Harry
How dull it seems
Yet you’re the hero of my dreams

I can still recall our last summer
I still see it all
Walks along the Seine
Laughing in the rain
Our last summer
Memories that remain

I can still recall our last summer
I still see it all
In the tourist jam
‘Round the Notre Dame
Our last summer
Walking hand in hand

Paris restaurants
Our last summer
Morning croissants
We were living for the day
Worries far away
Our last summer

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
