YESTERDAYS PEOPLE

LYRIC:

SITTING ALONE IN A ROOM SHE CALLS HOME

THE OLD LADY STARTED TO CRY TIME RUSHES BY

AND YESTERDAYS PEOPLE HAVE GONE

THEY ALL FLEW AWAY ON A WINTERY DAY

IN A ROCKETSHIP HEADING FOR MARS

OR ONE OF THE STARS IN THE FAR MILKY WAY

IT WAS EARLY ONE MORNING AND NOBODY SAW THEM GO

EXCEPT ONE LITTLE BOY WHO WAS PEEPING FROM HIS BEDROOM WINDOW

LOOKING FOR THE SUNRISE LISTENING TO THE WIND BLOW

CHORUS:

OH MOTHER DID YOU SEE THEM THE LITTLE BOY SAID

THEY ALL LOOKED SO HAPPY TODAY

LAUGHING AND SINGING AND CHURCHBELLS WERE RINGING

WHEN THE PIED PIPER STARTED TO PLAY

HIS MUSIC RECAPTURED THOSE FAR AWAY YEARS

WHEN YESTERDAYS PEOPLE WERE YOUNG

I KNEW THEY WOULD BE ETERNALLY HAPPY

AS THEY ALL FLEW AWAY TO THE SUN

2ND VERSE:

HOW COULD THEY LEAVE ME THE OLD LADY CRIED

HOW COULD THEY LEAVE ME THIS WAY

ALONE EVERY DAY JUST WATCHING THE WORLD PASSING BY

ALONE WITHOUT LAUGHTER ALONE WITHOUT SONG

ALONE IN A WORLD WITHOUT LOVE JUST MEMORIES OF

ALL THE YEARS THAT HAVE GONE

INTO THE SKY FLEW A BEAUTIFUL BUTTERFLY

HIGHER AND HIGHER AND HIGHER SHE ROSE

WHY WAS SHE LAUGHING WHY WAS SHE SINGING

WHERE WAS SHE GOING TO NOBODY KNOWS

CHORUS:

OH MOTHER DID YOU SEE THEM———————-
