  • When trumpets were mellow
    And every gal only had one fellow
    No need to remember when
    'Cause everything old is new again

    Dancin' at your Long Island Jazz Age parties
    Waiter, bring us some more Bacardis
    We'll order now what they ordered then
    'Cause everything old is new again

    Get out your white suit, your tap shoes and tails
    Let's go backward when forward fails
    And movie stars you thought were long dead
    Now are framed beside your bed

    Don't throw the past away
    You might need it some rainy day
    Dreams can come true again
    When everything old is new again

    Get out your white suit, your tap shoes and tails
    Put it in backward when forward fails
    But leave Greta Garbo alone
    Be a movie star on your own

    And don't throw the past away
    You might need it some rainy day
    Dreams can come true again
    When everything old is new again

    When everything old is new again
    I might fall in love with you again Writer/s: Carole Bayer Sager, Peter Woolnough Allen
