"(Remember The Days Of The) Old Schoolyard" as written by and Cat Stevens Yusuf Islam....
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
We used to laugh a lot, oh don't you
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
When we had imaginings and we had
All kinds of things and we laughed
And needed love yes, I do
Oh and I remember you
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
We used to cry a lot, oh don't you
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
When we had simplicity and we had
Warm toast for tea and we laughed
And needed love yes, I do
Oh and I remember you

You were my sweet love, my first sweet love
My lovey dove, my love lovey dove
No matter what place, whichever the place
I still see your face, your smiling face
In childish dreams, inside my dreams
Like king and queen, god save our dreams
N'though time may face, though time may fade
It ain't never too late, to learn about love
Learn about love

Remember the days of the old schoolyard
We used to laugh a lot, oh don't you
Remember the days of the old schoolyard
When we had imaginings and we had
All kinds of things and we laughed
And needed love yes, I do
Oh and I remember you

    General CommentEven though the actual music in this song seems really simplistic to me, I love it. You can never forget your first love, no matter how it went. Reminds me of my first love, who I met in the 3rd grade, when we had the same babysitter, and all of us kids there would always just play make believe things.

    General CommentSIMPLE?! Man, I find the drum line SOoo freaking difficult. Actually, I guess you are right for most of the music but the drums are definately hard. It is a great song. It sounds so innocent and precious but pumped with fun and engery to go learn and experience things. I t also makes me think of the past of course.

    General Commentthere is a mistake though
    it says
    "Yes I do, oh and I will always love you"
    when it should say
    "Yes I do, oh and I remember you"

    it is such a great song.
    reminds me of my best mate when she used to play it all the time

    General CommentThis song brings back so many wonderful memories of my school days, which took place around the time this record was actually released. Memories of great friends and lovely girls during the happiest years of my life. What I would give to relive those days once more.
