Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be
There's a shadow hanging over me.
Oh, yesterday came suddenly

Why she had to go I don't know she wouldn't say
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Why she had to go I don't know she wouldn't say
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday
Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm

They're gonna put mein the movies
They're gonna makea big star out of me
We'll make the film about a man that's sad and lonely
And all I gotta do is act naturally
Well, I'll bet you I'm gonna be a big star
Might win an Oscar you can never tell
The movie's gonna make me a big star
'Cause I can play the part so well
Well, I hope you come and see me in the movies
Then, I'll know that you will plainly see
The biggest fool that ever hit the big time
And all I gotta do is act naturally

We'll make the scene about a man that's sad and lonely
And beggin' down upon his bended knees
I'll play the part and I won't need rehearsin'
All I'll have to do is act naturally
Well, I'll bet you I'm gonna be a big star
Might win an Oscar you can never tell
The movie's gonna make me a big star
'Cause I can play the part so well
Well, I hope you come and see me in the movies
Then, I'll know that you will plainly see
The biggest fool that ever hit the big time
And all I gotta do is act naturally
