Those were the days

"Those Were the Days" is the theme song from the sitcom All in the Family, usually sung off-key and played on the piano by the show's main characters, Archie and Edith Bunker. The song is parodied in the episode "Lisa's Sax" by Homer and Marge. The music was written by Charles Strouse and the original lyrics by Lee Adams. The parody lyrics were written by Al Jean and Mike Reiss. It is part of the second track on the album Go Simpsonic with The Simpsons.
