Yesteryear

I consulted with my patients near

Now they seldom in my room appear

Oh I believe in yesteryear

.

Suddenly

It’s not half the job it used to be

With a plastic apron wrapped round me

Oh yesteryear went suddenly

.

Why it had to go

I well know, it’s all too clear

Something went so wrong,

Now I long for yesteryear

.

Yesteryear

Life could simply be so full of cheer

Now so many folk just live in fear

Oh I believe in yesteryear

.

Why it had to go

I well know, it’s all too clear

Something went so wrong

Now I long for yesteryear

.

Yesteryear

Work was something that I once held dear

Now I sometimes find I shed a tear

Oh I believe in yesteryear

Mm mm mm mm mm mm

.

After John Lennon and Paul McCartney
