“Children of our Yesterdays” … copyright Randall Rospond 2011

{ lyrical note: I never actually sing “yesterdays” }

intro: D A D
verse : A D A D A A E D D A
“ Upon a magic carpet – if you lend me your ears

“Randy @ Westwood, Toronto circa 1976”


See the tarnished silver and gold – wrinkled papers are old
as the Children from our Yesteryears “

verse : A D A D A A E D D A
“Would you lend me a rainbow – we may dance in the sun
No it’s not from a nother time – though it may seem that way from the rhyme
as the Children from our Yesteryears ”

chorus : A D A D A A E D A {same as verse }
“ like the summer waves – so amber and clear
sheets of glass slipping into the past
we reach out but they never last
as the Children from our Yesteryears”

bridge: E D … A E D A
“ I tossed out my old face and a box of the blues today
I don’t want them anymore but they’re not for you
old pictures and memories = sometimes we hold on way too tight
I dreamt it was time that we danced in the new “

D A

chorus : A D A D A A E D A {same as verse }
“ like the summer waves – so amber and clear
sheets of glass slipping into the past
we reach out but they never last
as the Children from our Yesteryears”

verse: A D A D A A E D D A
“ so take back the heartaches – and take back the pain
and our sorrows can just walk away
and we’ll ride off into the sunset
again and again my Dear Friend

chorus : A D A D A A E D A {same as verse }
“ like the summer waves – so amber and clear
sheets of glass slipping into the past
we reach out but they never last
as the Children from our Yesteryears”

numerous repeats : “ like the summer waves “ { improv }
then bring in : ” so amber and clear ”

sheets of glass slipping into the past
we reach out but they never last
as the Children from our Yesteryears”

* dedicated to the children we once were and still hold inside
