"Yesterday Once More" as written by Richard Lynn Carpenter and 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 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

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

Every sha-la-la-la
Every wo-o-wo-o, still shines
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling

    General CommentYea, it's hard to comment cause it's a very personal song to the singer and something not everyone can relate to.

    General CommentI join to Durang0.
    And for you VoDka*, I have to say, I find it very annoying, when someone makes a big deal of when there are no comments but still doesn't comment the song by himself.

    General CommentI love this one! I believe it's about someone who's broken up with her boyfriend, but she meets someone new, he makes her happy but she remembers all the things she and her ex did together.
