  Yesterday Once More (The Carpenters)
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, 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 them
And I'd memorize each word
Those old melodies still sound so good to me
As they melt the years away
[Repeat]
All my best memories come back clearly to me
Some can even make me cry, just like before
It's yesterday once more
[Repeat, repeat]
