Sunny Afternoon

In the style of

The Kinks

Lyrics

the taxman's takin'
all my dough
and left me in
my stately home
lazin' 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
tryin' to break me

and i love to live
so pleasantly
live this life
of luxury

lazin' on a
sunny afternoon
in a summertime
in a summertime
in a summertime

my girlfriend's run
off with my car
and gone back to
her ma and pa
tellin' tales of
drunkenness and
cruelty

now i'm sitting here
sipping at my
ice cold beer
lazin' 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
lazin' on a
sunny afternoon

in a summertime
in a summertime
in a summertime

oh save me save me
save me from
this squeeze
i got a big fat mama
tryin' to break me

and i love to live
so pleasantly
live this life
of luxury

lazin' on a
sunny afternoon
in a summertime
in a summertime
in a summertime
in a summertime
in a summertime
