Sunny Afternoon Lyrics

The taxman's taken all my dough
And left me in this stately home
Lazin' on a sunny afternoon
And I can't even sail my yacht
He's taken' everything I've got
All I've got's this sunny afternoon
In the summertime

Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze
I've got a big fat momma 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 parrot heads and parties
And now I'm just sitting here
Sippin' on this ice-cold beer
Lazin' on a sunny afternoon
In the summertime

Help me, help me, help me sail away
Well give me two good reason why I ought to stay
'Cause I love to live so pleasantly, live this life of luxury
Lazin' on a sunny afternoon, in the summertime
In the summertime, in the summertime

Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze
I've got a big fat momma tryin' to break me
And I love to live so pleasantly, live this life of luxury
Lazin' on a sunny afternoon, in the summertime
In the summertime, in the summertime

Taxman's taken' all my dough
(In the summertime)
Gonna find that passport and outta here I go
(In the summertime)

Catch me a flight to St., somewhere and get out of this cold weather
Go somewhere where no body knows my name
(In the summertime)
Gotta keep my mouth shut, try to go to confession at least once a week
(In the summertime)
Somewhere preferably south of the equator
I believe where it's summertime
Where winter spends the summer, somewhere like that
(In the summertime)
(In the summertime)
