Verse 1: @0:05
C        C    D      E
When I was young
EG   G E   G   E   AGE
I’d  listen to the radio
E      G    A    B    E  G G     A
Waitin’ for my favorite songs
E            G        A      D2E2   D2   C2B
When they played    I’d    sing  along
C      E      G   E D
It made me smile

Verse 2: @0:28
C             C      D     E   G      G
Those were such happy times
E        G   E     A   GE
And not so long ago
E      G     A      B         E        G        A
How I wondered where they’d gone
B         D2      C2    B A
But they’re back again
B       C2 B   C2    B       A
Just like a long lost friend
A     B      C2 C2    A   C2  D2
All the songs I loved so well

Chorus 1: @0:50
C2D2   E2E2E2E2
Every Sha-la-la-la
D2C2     B C2  B A
Every  Wo-o-wo-o
E           G
Still shines
C2 D2    E2  E2 E2 E2 E2
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling
D2         C2     B C2     B      A
That they’re startin’  to  sing’s
E     G
So fine
@1:13
A             B   C2  B  C2  D2
When they get to the part
C2           B      C2 B     C2   D2
Where he’s breakin’ her heart
C2D2  E2E2    D2   C2   A
It can  really make me cry

Just like before
E       E   D  C     D       E
It’s yesterday once more

Verse 3: @1:42
C      D       E    G     G  E   G
Lookin’ back on how it was
E       A       G    E
In years gone by
E        G      A        B      E  G   A
And the good times that I had
E            G A  D2E2  D2C2    B
Makes today seem  rather  sad
G        E   EG     E  D
So much has changed

Verse 4: @2:05
C    D       E     G   G     E
It was songs of love that
G     E       A   G    E
I would sing to then
E       G     A   B  E      G       A
And I’d memorize each word
B          D2   C2 B A
Those old melodies
B         C2     B    C2   B   A
Still sound so good  to me
A       B     C2  C2     A   C2D2
As they melt the years away

Chorus 2: @2:27
C2D2   E2E2E2E2
Every Sha-la-la-la
D2C2     B C2  B A
Every  Wo-o-wo-o
E           G
Still shines
C2 D2    E2  E2 E2 E2 E2
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling
D2       C2   BC2 B A
That they’re startin’  to  sing’s
E    G
So fine
@2:50
A     B     C2   B C2 D2
All my best memories
C2           B    C2 B  C2 D2
Come back clearly to me

Some can even make me cry.
E        E     AEG
Just like before
