>Sunny afternoon – #1304

>

…in the Römerwall park.

The Kinks have something definitive on that, too.

The tax man’s taken all my dough
And left me in my stately home
Lazing on a sunny afternoon

And I can’t sail my yacht
He’s taken everythin’ I’ve got
All I’ve got’s this sunny afternoon

Save me, save me
Save me from this squeeze
I’ve got a big fat momma tryin’ to break me

And I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
In the summertime, in the summertime
In the summertime

My girlfriend’s gone off with my car
And gone back to her ma and pa
Telling tales of drunkenness and cruelty

Now I’m sitting here
Sipping at my ice cold beer
Lazing on a sunny afternoon

Help me, help me, help me sail away
Well, give me two good reasons
Why I ought to stay

‘Cause I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
In Summertime, in summertime
In summertime

Save me, save me
Save me from this squeeze
I’ve got a big fat momma tyin’ to break me

And I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazing on a sunny afternoon

In the summertime, in the summertime
In the summertime, in the summertime
In the summertime

Lyrics and music: Raymond Douglas Davies
