SUNNY AFTERNOON

The Kinks

 

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 everything I've got,


All I've got's this sunny afternoon.





Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze.


I got a big fat mama trying 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 run 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 oughta stay.
'

Cause 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



 

Ah, save me, save me, save me from this squeeze.


I got a big fat mama trying 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
