[Verse 1]

           C

When I was young

                    Em

I'd listened to the radio

        Am              Am7

Waitin' for my favorite songs

          FM7            Em

When they played I'd sing along

           Dm7       G

It made me smile

                C

Those were such happy times

           Em

And not so long ago

      Am                    Am7

How I wondered where they'd gone

Bm7-5    E7      Am

But they're back again

            Am7/G

Just like a long lost friend

        FM7     Dm7        G

All the songs I loved so well

[Chorus]

           C

(*)   Every Sha-la-la-la

      Am

Every Wo-wo-wo

       C        Am

Still shines

      C

Every shing-a-ling-a-ling

             Am

That they're starting to sing

    Dm7      G

So fine

[Post Chorus]

          Am

When they get to the part

           AmM7

Where he's breakin' her heart

       Am7             D7

It can really make me cry

          FM7              Dm7

Just like before

               CM7     FM7  CM7

It's yesterday once more

[Verse 2]

        C

Lookin' back on how it was

    Em

In years gone by

        Am                Am7

And the good times that I had

        FM7               Em

Makes today seem rather sad

            Dm7          G

So much has changed

       C

It was songs of love that

                Em

I would sing to then

      Am              Am7

And I'd memorize each word

Bm7-5     E7   Am

Those old melodies

              Am7/G

Still sound so good to me

        FM7      Dm7        G

As they melt the years away

Repeat (*) (only chorus)

[Chorus]

           C

(*)   Every Sha-la-la-la

      Am

Every Wo-wo-wo

       C        Am

Still shines

      C

Every shing-a-ling-a-ling

             Am

That they're starting to sing

    Dm7      G

So fine

       Am

All my best memories

          AmM7

Come back clearly to me

         Am7           D7

Some can even make me cry

          FM7

Just like before

Dm7               CM7  FM7 CM7

It's yesterday once more

Repeat (*) x2

           C

(*)   Every Sha-la-la-la

      Am

Every Wo-wo-wo

       C        Am

Still shines

      C

Every shing-a-ling-a-ling

             Am

That they're starting to sing

    Dm7      G

So fine           C

(*)   Every Sha-la-la-la

      Am

Every Wo-wo-wo

       C        Am

Still shines

      C

Every shing-a-ling-a-ling

             Am

That they're starting to sing

    Dm7      G
