yesterday’s hero lyrics – bay city rollers

when i walk down the street,
see the people who stop and stare and say
haven’t i seen that face somewhere a long time ago

when i walk down the street,
see the stranger who says, “why, hi,”
with a, “how you going, buddy,”
when you walked on by i thought i’d say h*llo

they say:
haven’t i seen your face before
weren’t you the boy that used to live next door,
weren’t you on television ev’ry night
haven’t i seen you round

take a look at me, i’m yesterday’s hero,
yesterday’s hero, that’s all i be.

take a look at me, i’m yesterday’s hero,
and yesterday’s hero, is all that i’m gonna be
if i don’t get together,
make a new start and be somebody better,
all that i’ll be if i don’t get together now.

when you walk down the street, now,
if you know me,t hen p*ss me by,
if you wonder what i’m doing don’t ask me why,
i don’t read the news~

when you walk down the street,
if you’re sorry then don’t feel bad,
if you followed my story, then just be glad,
you ain’t in my shoes

because,
haven’t you seen my face before,
yes, i was the boy who used to live next door,
yes, i was on television ev’ry night,
haven’t you seen me round.

take a look at me, i’m yesterday’s hero,
yesterday’s hero …
