"Yesterday Once More"

(As recorded by the Carpenters)
RICHARD CARPENTER
JOHN BETTIS

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 love so well.

Every sha la la la, every wo oo wo oo, still shine
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling, that they're starting to sing so fine
When they get to the part where he's breaking her heart
It can really make me cry, just like before
It's yesterday once more.

(Shoo be do lang lang)
(Shoo be do lang lang)

Looking 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 oo wo oo, still shine
(Oh the oldies but goodies)
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling, that they're starting to sing 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.

(Shoo be do lang lang)

Every sha la la la, every wo oo wo oo, still shines
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling, that they're starting to sing so fine
Every sha la la la, every wo oo wo oo, still shines
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling, that they're starting to sing so fine.
