I sing a song for yesterday

I sing a song for yesterday

when life was less complicated than today

 

when life was tranquil

and peace was out there

 

when people suffered hardships

but were happy and cared

 

I sing a song for yesterday

when life was simple not like to-day

 

I sing a song for yesterday

when life was beautiful and pure and clean

when people were polite and friendly

 

when life was so beautiful and people cared

when we gave and often shared

and lived in peace and were not scared

 

I sing a song for yesterday

when love was romance and a biography

a word-perfect a beautiful scene

just like a black and white silent movie

 

what has gone wrong with life to-day

I sing

I sing

a song for yesterday

 

when life was so beautiful and people lived in harmony

I sing a song for yesterday

please bring it back to me

how life was yesterday

I sing a song for yesterday
