            E                     Abm/Eb
When i was young I'd listen to the radio
        C#m                   C#m/B
Waiting for my favorite songs
            Amaj7               Abm7
When they played I'd sing along
                F#m7 B/D# A9/C# A/B
It made me smile

                 E                     Abm/Eb
Those were such happy times and not so long ago
        C#m     C#m/B
How I wondered where they'd gone
Ebm7-5 Ab7  C#m
But they're back again
Just like a long lost friend
         Amaj7  F#m7      A/B
All the songs I love so well
         Amaj7  F#m7        A/B

 B     E                  C#m                E
Every sha-la-la-la, Every wo-o-wo-o still shines
Every shing-A-ling-A-ling 
              C#m                     F#m7   B   A/B
That they're startin' to sing so fine
  B       C#m
When they get to the part
           C aug
Where he's breaking her heart
       E/B                Bbm7-5
It can really make me cry
                 E/B   A/B
Just like before
It's yesterday once more

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.


All my best memories come back clearly to me
Some can even make me cry.
Just like before
It's yesterday once more.
