Something happened to me yesterday
Something I can't speak of right away
Something happened to me, something oh so goody
Something happened to me yesterday

He don't know if it's right or wrong
Maybe he should tell someone
He's not sure just what it was
Or if it's against the law

Something

Something very strange I hear you say
You're talking in a most peculiar way
But something really threw me, something oh so goody
Something happened to me yesterday

Yesterday...

He don't know just where it's gone
He don't really care at all
No one's sure just what it was
Or the meaning and/or cause

What kind of joint is this?

Take your partners...

Someone says there's something more to pay
For sins that you committed yesterday
It's really rather drippy but something oh so trippy
Something happened to me yesterday

Someone's singing loud across the bay
Sitting on a mat about to pray
Isn't half as loony as something oh so groovy
Something happened to me yesterday

Well thank you very much and now I think it's time for us all to go
So from all of us to all of you
Not forgetting the boys in the band and our producer Reg Thorpe
We'd like to say God bless
So if you're out tonight, don't forget, if you're on your bike
Wear white
Evening all...
