Yesterday, there was money in my IRA,
Now my statements can be thrown away
Oh things weren’t scary yesterday.
Suddenly, my investments are a joke, you see,
My kids’ college funds are now paltry,
Too bad the bail out’s not for me.
Why we had to crash, I don’t know,
No one can say,
Blame goes on and on,
Now I long for yesterday.
Yesterday, I was saving for a future day,
Now I’ll work until I’m old and grey,
Oh I believe in yesterday.
