Yesterday,
All my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh I believe in yesterday

Suddenly
I don't have the laugh
I used to weep
There's a shadow hanging over me
Oh, yesterday, came suddenly

Why'd she have 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

I always thought Elvis sung this as kind of a half hearted throw away during his live 70's performances. Not badly done, but often done as part of a medley, and only portions sung. I wish he had done a complete studio version and the results would have been excellent, as it is we can dream.

The song itself is not very impressive, but I do prefer the Beatles version.

Not as good as the original where the arrangement and Paul's inferior voice just fits perfectly. This is a good effort but not one of his stand out live recordings, and I would have liked to have heard a more polished studio version.

I do like it better than the Beatles version ... simply because his voice was alot more impressing I guess !

ok but not as good as the original. Simpler is better as The Beatles proved. Not a Vgeas style song with all the horns & voices, etc.
