Kinks – Sunny Afternoon lyrics


The tax mans 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 gots this sunny afternoon. 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

My girlfriends run off with my car,
And gone back to her ma and pa,
Telling tales of drunkenness and cruelty. Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze. And I love to live so pleasantly,
Live this life of luxury,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon. 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

Ah, save me, save me, save me from this squeeze. In the summertime
In the summertime
In the summertime Help me, help me, help me sail away,
Well give me two good reasons why I oughta stay. I got a big fat mama trying to break me. Now I’m sitting here,
Sipping at my ice cold beer,
Lazing on a sunny afternoon. I got a big fat mama trying to break me.
