Yesterday Once More
Richard Carpenter/John Bettis
When I was young I'd listen to the radio
Waitin' for my fav'rite 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

Ev'ry sha-la-la-la ev'ry wo-ho-wo-ho still shines
Ev'ry shing-a-ling-a-ling
That they're startin' 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

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 them
And I'd memorize each word
Those old melodies
Still sound so good to me
As they melt the years away

Ev'ry sha-la-la-la ev'ry wo-ho-wo-ho still shines
Ev'ry shing-a-ling-a-ling
That they're startin' 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

Ev'ry sha-la-la-la ev'ry wo-ho-wo-ho still shines
Ev'ry shing-a-ling-a-ling
That they're startin' to sing so fine

Ev'ry sha-la-la-la ev'ry wo-ho-wo-ho still shines
Ev'ry shing-a-ling-a-ling
That they're startin' to sing so fine
