Story behind the song
My attempt at a sort of day in a life song, a man wakes up, goes through his day, preparing, driving, working, pondering, meeting girlfriend, having sex, waking up the next day and committing suicide
Lyrics
The Day In the morning I am yawning Wondering how the day will go Read some news, shine my shoes Stick on my favourite TV show There’s a family and they’re so angry Shouting at each other in a funny way She’s a slob and he’s got no job But it’s okay coz the state will pay And ooh the day is long And ooh I sing my song I am driving, windows sliding Down, lets in the cool fresh air Reach the workplace, same old faces sitting in the same old chairs Boss is ranting, PA’s panting Running round doing everything Crunch some numbers, daydream wonders In my breaks I’m facebooking And ooh the day is long And ooh I sing my song I don’t know if I should say this But I think life is just a play list? Randomly bouncing us from track to track I don’t know but I do worry I think I am going a funny If my boss finds out, I’m sure to get the sack It is evening, the rain is heaving Soaking me down RIGHT to the bone Read my text from the opposite sex Time to head to my second home I arrive at Sasha’s and my tea is ashes But I eat it any way I drink her whisky, she gets frisky I hope she’s not in the family way And ooh the day is long And ooh I sing my song I don’t know if I should say this But I think life is just a play list? Randomly bouncing us from track to track I don’t know but I do worry I think I am going funny If Sasha finds out, I’m sure to get the sack And ooh the day is long And ooh I sing my song In the morning I am yawning Can’t tune into a radio band I walk out the door, head to the shore Clothes in a line across the sand Far out to sea, I am free Spiralling down to Mother Nature’s bed So much madness, so much sadness So let the darkness into my head And ooh the day is long And ooh I sing my song Laurence Wilson
