Who wants yesterday's papers?
Who wants yesterday's girl?
Who wants yesterday's papers?
Nobody in the world

Well after this time I've finally learned
After pain and hurt
After all this what have I achieved?
I've realized it's time to leave


I'm living a life of constant change
Every day means a turn of the page
Yesterday's papers is such bad news
The same thing applies to me and you

It seems very hard to have just one girl
When there's a million in the world
All of these people just can't wait
To fall right into their big mistake
