Golden times/Gyllene tider

I don’t know if the English language have the same expression as we have in Swedish. We say “Gyllene tider”, golden times, about good times.

What if we could dig up a treasure box filled with time?

Would we then have time pirates?

What would we do if we all of a sudden found golden times?

Would we be any happier with this golden time treasure?
Vad skulle vi göra om vi fann en skattkista full med tid?

  1. Golden years are passing by,
    Happy, happy golden years,
    Passing on the wings of time,
    These happy golden years.
    Call them back as they go by,
    Sweet their memories are,
    Oh, improve them as they fly,
    These happy golden years.

    Golden years, golden years
    Happy golden years
    Oh, improve them as they fly
    These Happy Golden Years

    Golden years are passing by,
    Precious precious golden years
    let no idle hour be spent
    With sorrow, grief and tears
    Ah! The good we all may do
    As the moments pass
    To your nobler self be true
    Reward will come at last

    Golden years, golden years
    Happy golden years
    Oh, improve them as they fly
    These Happy Golden Years

    Golden years are passing by
    Fleeting, fleeting swiftly on
    Life is but a passing hour
    Before we know ’tis gone
    Soon the parting time will come
    Day by day it nears
    Have you done your duty well
    These happy golden years?
