The Carpenters - Yesterday once more
Tekst: John Bettis / Muziek: Richard Carpenter
(1973)






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-lalala, every wo-ohoho still shines
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling, that they’re starting 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-lalala, every wo-ohoho still shines
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling, that they’re starting 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



Every sha-lalala, every wo-ohoho still shines
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling, that they’re starting to sing’s so fine



Every sha-lalala, every wo-ohoho still shines
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling, that they’re starting to sing’s so fine
