Lyrics:Otto Harbach
Music:Jerome Kern

The song was publishe 1933.

It was written for the show Roberta (1933),
where it was introduced by Fay Templeton.
The song was soon picked up by jazz musicians
and has since gone on to become one of the top jazz standards.
Jazz (see "External links" below)
ranks it ninth among all jazz standards,
in terms of being "included most often on currently issued CDs
by the greatest number of jazz artists."

Irene Dunne performed the song in the film version Roberta (1935).

Barbra Streisand performed the song in her TV special Color Me Barbra
and included a recording on her album Color Me Barbra (1966).


Yesterdays, yesterdays
Days I knew as happy sweet, sequestered days
Olden days, golden day
Days of mad romance and love

Then gay youth was mine
And truth was mine
Joyous, free and flaming life forsooth was mine
Sad am I, glad am I
For today I'm dreaming of
Of yesterdays

Then gay youth was mine
The truth was mine...

Sad am I, glad am I
Because today I'm dreaming of
Of yesterdays
