Hank The Knife & The Jets – Yesterday Star lyrics

She used to be a hit in the glamour scene
A more exciting woman there has never been
Never ever failing she had offers every day.

Suddenly she started doing not so well
Didn't listen what somebody tried to tell
That her magic spell was slippin' away.

They said it loud she's down and out
She lost her fans no doubt about
Nowhere to go got to the jar
And now they say that she's a yesterday star.

She used to be a star in a teenage dream
To ev'ry man and boy she was a sunlight beam
Throwing lots of parties and she never called it a date
Squandering all her money and her dignity
Running out of friends
She didn't want to see
That her flame was slowly fading away.
