When I was young
I'd listened to the radio
Waitin' for my favorite songs
When they played I'd sing along
It made me smile

Those were such happy times
And not so long ago
How I wondered where they'd gone
But they're back again
Just like a long lost friend
All the songs I loved so well



(*) Every Sha-la-la-la
Every Wo-wo-wo
Still shines
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling
That they're starting to sing's
So fine

When they get to the part
Where he's breakin' her heart
It can really make me cry
Just like before
It's yesterday once more

Lookin' 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


Repeat (*)


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


Repeat (*)

    When we were young all the good songs we loved and always listened to, made our world happier!
    Todays songs don't sound the same and we want to bring back the old songs we loved when we were younger!

    When we were young the songs we loved to listen to and always sang along with, were the best songs and made our world alot brighter!
    Todays songs don't sound the same, bring back the classics and never let the classics die off!
