Paul Anka Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I remember when we used to be in our teens
I wear bobby socks and old blue jeans
That was long so I'd like to say
I love you in the same old way, a-ha-ha
I love you in the same old way

Mmm
I remember when we used to babysit your brother
And who was watching us?
Your father and mother
That was long ago and I'd like to say
I love you in the same old way, a-ha-ha
I love you in the same old way

Now, heaven
I'm in heaven again
And I still remember where and when
And I love you
You still love me, hah
And that's the way it's gonna be

I remember when we were in school
A-learning how to live by the golden rule
That was long ago and I'd like to say
I love you in the same old way, a-ha
I love you in the same old way
Ho!

Mmm, heaven
I'm in heaven again
And I still remember where and when
I still love you
You know you love me
And that's the way its gonna be

Hey, I remember when we used to be in school
Learning how to live by the golden rule
That was long ago and I'd like to say
I love you in the same old way, a-ha-ha




I love you in the same old way, a-ha-ha
I love you in the same old way, a-ha-ha
