"Yesterday is Over" was a song written for the proposed 1960 film Chanticleer. It was meant to be sung by the Pheasant as a means of consoling Chanticleer, who thought that the barnyard animals wouldn't accept him due to the fact that he had found out he did not have the power to raise the sun.


Pheasant: Yesterday is over

There's a new day beginning 

Come on, start grinning

Lift your head

Yesterday is over

Leave your troubles behind you

This day should find you

Full of dreams

Fate is keeping track of you

Surely you're aware

Why keep looking back of you?

You're not headed there

Take your inspiration from this new golden dawn

Walk out of your past

Know your thoughts at last

And be glad that yesterday is gone
