This song used to be popular around 25 years ago.
I only remember a few words. Would love to get the rest of the words and maybe the source. TIA!

I remember, I remember
The way it used to be
when the sun was barely rising
And the boys to cheder ran
They no longer can,
I remember
Chorus: Like a day ago, a year ago, a life ago
So clearly, so dearly, so longingly
I remember, yet I forget

I remember going to a Nshei play in Brooklyn in which they performed the Diary of Anne Frank. They sang the song there as well.

Seeing grandma lighting candles
On a summer Friday night

Weird, since Anne Frank wasn't even religious.

I went to Bais Kaila '94-'97 and we sang that song at a school play one of those years ...wow, I still feel like I just graduated so many years later! Anyone else feel like that? Where have the years gone?!

Why am I not surprised?
Revisionist history, bais yakov style.
I'm not lol'ing.

This deserves its own thread but I have too much to say and I don't have time or patience to post a dissertation on the subject.
If there are any teachers here, please keep in mind that your first obligation to the precious children we entrust in your care is to speak the truth.

Wow... you have issues about what? A play that’s based on a true story?

I remember, I remember
The house where I was born
In the windows there were shutters
and they opened to the day
Going out to play, I remember

I remember, I remember
The house where I was born,
Seeing Ima lighting candles
on a summer Friday night
Staring at the light, I remember

Like a day ago
A year ago
A life ago
So clearly
So vaguely
So dearly
So longingly
I remember...yet I forget

I remember, I remember
the way it used to be
how the sun was barely rising
when the boys to cheder ran
They no longer can, I remember

I remember, I remember
the way it used to be
In the country, in the summer
The company of friends
I was pretty then, I remember

Like a day ago.....

I remember, I remember
the world where I was born
I remember, I remember
the world where I was born,
There was music, there was sunlight
there was life on every street
Every dream was sweet, I remember....


Wow, can't believe I remember those lyrics....wonder if my fingers still remember it on the piano. Gotta try later. Thanks for bringing up the memory!

A play that claims it's a true story but "frumifies" it without specifying that it is now historical *fiction* perhaps?

When they first said this was from a play based on Anne Frank I figured it was some choir ensemble about the holocaust in general providing background for the story.

I only remember the first few lines but I remember it slightly differently:

I remember, I remember
The place where I was born
There were shutters on the windows
And...

Thank you so much Chayalle!!!! I've been trying to get the words to this song for years. And no, a Google search turned up nothing.
I wonder if this is recorded anywhere?
