diadems and gems that glitter
painted faces turning
lady played the harpsichord
where now the brambles grow
hopes and schemes
like old men's dreams
some have gone astra
the world could never change you said
but that was yesterday

peacocks, mannequin paraded
on your velvet lawn
servants at your beck and call
to bring your wine and roses
the songs your lovers made for you
were soon to fade away
the world could never change you said
but that was yesterday

fortunes come and go like winter
blossoms into spring
you woke one morning so unknowing
and all the money gone
you said goodbye to finery
and the friends who used to say
we're with you until the end of time
but that was yesterday
we're with you until the end of time
but that was yesterday
