Our Last Summer
By Abba

The summer air was soft and warm
The feeling right, the Paris night
Did it's best to please us
And strolling down the Elysee
We had a drink in each cafe And you
You talked of politics, philosophy and I
Smiled like Mona Lisa
We had our chance
It was a fine and true romance

I can still recall our last summer
I still see it all
Walks along the Seine, laughing in the rain
Our last summer
Memories that remain

We made our way along the river
And we sat down in the grass
By the Eiffel Tower
I was so happy we had met
It was the age of no regret
Oh yes
Those crazy years, that was the time
Of the flower-power
But underneath we had a fear of flying
Of getting old, a fear of slowly dying
We took the chance
Like we were dancing our last dance

I can still recall our last summer
I still see it all
In the tourist jam, round the Notre Dame
Our last summer
Walking hand in hand

Paris restaurants
Our last summer
Morning croissants
Living for the day, worries far away
Our last summer
We could laugh and play

And now you're working in a bank
The family man, the football fan
And your name is Harry
How dull it seems
Yet you're the hero of my dreams

I can still recall our last summer
I still see it all
Walks along the Seine, laughing in the rain
Our last summer
Memories that remain
I can still recall our last summer
I still see it all
In the tourist jam, round the Notre Dame
Our last summer
Walking hand in hand
Paris restaurants
Our last summer
Morning croissants
We were living for the day, worries far away...

= I RECALL
By Agnetha Faltskog

We had our youth, we had a dream
The time was right, our flame was bright
And our talent shining;
Frida, Benny, Bjorn and me,
All made music history as we, a
Group of rural, guileless Swedes, with pert girl stars
Sung a merry ballad
Called 'Waterloo',
And it won Eurovision too!

I can still recall 'Mamma Mia',
I recall them all;
A hit with each new song, we could do no wrong,
'til that rainy
Summer came along.

I was the one they talked about, I
Was the girl with golden hair,
All the men adored me.
I was suffused with restless fame
As trusty fans called out my name.
Amazing!
Those wondrous years of starry sparkle
All seem funny and surreal,
Yet underneath, I had a fear of choosing,
Between the things, that I risked nearly losing,
I shook my head,
And left so many things unsaid.

I can still recall 'Mamma Mia',
'Winner Takes It All',
A hit with every tune,
We outshone the moon,
'til one dark day
Sorrow came so soon.

Marriages can die,
Under pressure,
True for you and I;
We just slipped apart, and it broke my heart,
It was time to
Make another start.

And now you're writing songs for shows,
A man with flair, a millionaire,
And your name is hallowed,
I shunned my fame,
Well, that's the nature of the game.

I can still recall 'Super Trouper'
'Winner Takes It All'
Now I'm a recluse - rueful? What's the use?
Life is short, it's
Time to call a truce.
Thank you all so much
For the music,
For giving it to me,
A songstress I'll remain, I'll repel my fame
I'll surrender.
My future for less pain
A songstress I'll remain
I surrender, I'll treasure
What remains.
