Sunny Afternoon – Written by Raymond Davies

The taxman’s taken all my dough
And left me in my stately home
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
And I can’t sail my yacht
Hes taken everything I’ve got
Now all I’ve got’s this sunny afternoon

Well 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
I 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
Now I’m sitting here
Sipping at my ice cold beer
Lazing on a sunny afternoon

Well 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
I live this life of luxury
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
In the summertime
In the summertime
In the summertime

Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze
I gotta big fat mama trying to break me
And I love to live so pleasantly
I live this life of luxury
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
In the summertime
In the summertime
In the summertime
