Een Shoot the Moon site laatst bijgewerkt op: 22 september 2021 ©  2021 Karen en Richard Carpenter hadden onder de groepsnaam "Carpenters" (zonder lidwoord) in de eerste helft van de zeventiger jaren een reeks hits in Nederland. Twee daarvan haalden de top-10: Jambalaya in februari 1974 en Yesterday once more in juli 1973. Hun tweede hit, Superstar uit 1971, staat ook op het Meezingersrepertoire. De titel Yesterday once more werd ook gebruikt voor talloze Carpenters-verzamelelpees over de hele wereld. When I was young I'd listen 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-laa Every wo-ho-ho-hoo still shines Every shing-a-ling-a-ling That they're startin' 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 (shoo-bee-doo bang-bang) (Shoo-bee-doo bang-bang) 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 Every sha-la-la-laa Every wo-ho-ho-hoo still shines (all the oodies but goodies) Every shing-a-ling-a-ling That they're startin' to sing's so fine All my best memories Come back clearly to me Some can even make me cry Just like before It's yesterday once more (shoo-bee-doo bang-bang) Every sha-la-la-laa Every wo-ho-ho-hoo still shines Every shing-a-ling-a-ling That they're startin' to sing's so fine Every sha-la-la-laa Every wo-ho-ho-hoo still shines Every shing-a-ling-a-ling That they're startin' to sing's so...
