Yesterday Once More

"When I was young

I'd listen to the radio

Waitin' for my favorite songs

When they played I'd sing along

It made me smile.

 

Those were such happy times

And not so long ago

How I wondered where they'd gone

But they're back again

Just like a long lost friend

All the songs I loved so well.

 

Every Sha-la-la-la

Every Wo-o-wo-o

Still shines

Every shing-a-ling-a-ling

That they're startin' to sing's

So fine.

 

When they get to the part

Where he's breakin' her heart

It can really make me cry

Just like before

It's yesterday once more.

 

Lookin' back on how it was

In years gone by

And the good times that I had

Makes today seem rather sad

So much has changed.

 

It was songs of love that

I would sing to then

And I'd memorize each word

Those old melodies

Still sound so good to me

As they melt the years away.

 

Every sha-la-la-la

Every wo-o-wo-o

Still shines

Every shing-a-ling-a-ling

That they're startin' to sing's

So fine.

 

All my best memories

Come back clearly to me

Some can even make me cry.

 

Just like before

It's yesterday once more."

[The Carpenters - Yesterday Once More]
