Music cover
Once in the days of golden weather,
Days that were always fair,
Love was the world we walk'd together,
Oh! what a love was there.
Fresh as a flow'r when rains are falling,
Pure as a child that prays,
Once in the days beyond recalling,
Once in the golden days;
Once in the days beyond recalling,
Once in the golden days.

Ah! but the days brought changes after,
Clouds in the happy skies;
Care on the lips that curl'd with laughter,
Tears in the radiant eyes.
Parted asunder, worn with grieving,
Wearily each one prays,
Ah! for the days beyond retrieving,
Ah! for the golden days;
Ah! for the days beyond retrieving,
Ah! for the golden days.
Madame Patey
