THE BEATLES
Yesterday

ex. 1 Read the lyrics to the song "Yesterday"

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday
Suddenly there's a shadow hanging over me
I'm not half the man I used to be
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.
