Sunny Afternoon



        The taxman's taken 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 the 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 sittin' here
Sippin' at my ice-cooled beer
All I've got's this sunny afternoon

Help me, help me, help me sail away
Or give me two good reasons why I oughta stay
'Cause I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazin' on a sunny afternoon
In the summertime
