Bay City Rollers – Yesterday's Hero lyrics
When we walk down the street
See the people who stop and stare
And say "Haven't I seen that face
Somewhere a long time ago? "
Wehn we walk down the street
See the stranger who say
"Why hi! Well how you doin' buddy,
When you walked on by, I thought I'd say hello. "
They say: "Haven't I seen your face before?
Weren't you the boy that used to live next door?
Weren't you on television every
Night, haven't I seen you 'round? "

*We don't wanna be a yesterday's hero
A Yesterday's hero
That's all we'll be
We don't wanna be a yesterday's hero
A yesterday's hero
That's all that we're gonna be
If we don't get together
Make a new plan and be constantly better
All that we'll be if we don't get it together now.

When we walk down the street
If you know me than pass me by
If you wonder what I'm doin'
Don't ask me why I don't read the news
When we walk down the street
If you're sorry then don't feel bad
If you follow my story
I'm just as glad you ain't in my shoes
Because haven't you seen my face before
Yes I was the boy who used to live next door
Yes I was on television every night
Haven't you seen me 'round?

Spoken: Ladies and gentlemen,
The Bay City Rollers....
Everybody move back
Will you go, will you move back... Back! "

We don't wanna be yesterday's hero,
Yesterday's hero,
No, no
We don't wanna be yesterday's hero,
Yesterday's hero,
No, no
Repeat and fade
