Bad Old Days was the United Kingdom's entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1978 in Paris performed by the band Co-Co.

In the final, it was performed performed eighth following Spain and preceding Switzerland. At the close of voting, it finished in 11th place with 61 points.

At the time, this was the worst showing yet for the UK in Eurovision, surpassing the 9th place from 1966 which until 1978 had held the dubious distinction. "The Bad Old Days" held the ignominious title until 1987, when the UK finished 13th.

Lyrics

Remember me?
I was tossed and turnin’ like a ship without a sea
I was lost for learnin’ like a song without a key

Remember when
I was all alone without a soul to call my friend?
Who’d have thought those days would ever end?

Those were the bad old days
Before I had your love to guide me
Sad old days, you set me free
From all those bad old days
You put all the good inside of me

Those were the bad old days
Before I had you there besides me
Sad old days, and can’t you see?
You took the bad old days
And you put all the good inside of me

Remember who
Walked into my life and put their foot inside my shoe?
Now what was just a place for one is home for two

Remember why?
I’m gonna stay with you until the day I die
We can watch the good old days go by

Those were the bad old days
Before I had your love to guide me
Sad old days, you set me free
From all those bad old days
You put all the good inside of me

Oh dooby-doo…
Dooby-dooby-dooby-doo…
Ah…

Those were the bad old days
Before I had you there beside me
Sad old days, and can’t you see?
You took the bad old days
And you put all the good inside of me?

(Those were the bad old days)
(Those were the bad old days)
You put all the good inside of me

(Those were the bad old days)
Ah… (Those were the bad old days)
You put all the good inside of me
