Lyrics


Happy and I'm smiling,

Walk a mile to drink your water.

You know I'd love to love you,

And above you there's no other.

We'll go walking out

While others shout of war's disaster.

Oh, we won't give in,

Let's go living in the past.


Once I used to join in

Every boy and girl was my friend.

Now there's revolution, but they don't know

What they're fighting.

Let us close our eyes;

Outside their lives go on much faster.

Oh, we won't give in,

We'll keep living in the past.


Oh, we won't give in,

Let's go living in the past.

Oh no no we won't give in,

Let's go living in the past.
