Barbra Streisand Version: THE WAY WE WERE (Hums first and second lines) M-M-M-M-Mem'ries light the corners of my mind Misty water-colored mem'ries of the way we were Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind Smiles we gave to one another for the way we were. Can it be that it was all so simple then Or has time rewritten every line If we had the chance to do it all again, tell me, would we, could we Mem'ries may be beautiful and yet What's too painful to remember we simply choose to forget So it's the laughter we will remember Whenever we remember the way we were. The way we were. (Hums first line and a variation on the second line) ***** Gladys Knight Version: THE WAY WE WERE/TRY TO REMEMBER Spoken: Hey you know everybody's talkin' about the good old days Everybody, the good old days The good old days Well, let's talk about the good old days Come to think about it As bad as we think they are These will become the good old days of our children Why don't we try to remember The kind of September When life was slow and oh so mellow Try to remember And if you remember Then follow Why does it always seem the past is better We look back and think The winters were warmer The grass was greener The skies were bluer The smiles were brighter Can it be that it was all so simple then Or has time rewritten every line And if we had the chance to do it all again Tell me Would we? Could we? Memories like the corners of my mind Memories Misty watercolor memories Of the way we were Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind Smiles we gave to one another For the way we were Oh can it be that it was all so simple then Or has time rewritten every line And if we had the chance to do it all again Tell me Would we? Could we? Memories may be beautiful and yet What's too painful to remember We simply choose to forget So it's the laughter we'll remember We'll remember Whenever we remember The Way We Were... ***** Donna Summer Version: THE WAY WE WERE Spoken: Well you ladies out there you know what I'm I'm talkin' 'bout ya but you wanna know something? did you ever try to remember or or just place up a memory in your mind and it always seems so far away so hard to find Memories light the corners of my mind misty water-color memories of the way we were Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind smiles we gave to one another (oh yesterday) for the way we were Can it be that it was all so simple then or has time rewritten every line if we had the change to do it all again Spoken: Tell me, how many of you would live your lives again I would too You girls? Memories may be beautiful and yet what's too painful to remember we simply choose to forget and so it's the laughter we will remember whenever we remember
