Album Always The Bridesmaid: A Singles Series. Days of Elaine Lyrics. Those were the days of Elaine That was the phrase that she used to describe to her son Of the fun she had had. Long before he went away Long before days of the dole and the draze and the lull But the call never came. To say, oh oh oh. Loitering lavender park Laying about in the day and the dark of a room While the noon passes by. Always on verge of collapse Mother would quit and then suffer a lapse from the drink You would think she was dead
