Sunday, Sunday here again in tidy attire
You read the colour supplement, the TV guide
You dream of protein on a plate
Regret you left it quite so late
To gather the family around the table
To eat and then to sleep
Oh, the Sunday sleep

Sunday, Sunday here again a walk in the park
You meet an old soldier and talk of the past
He fought for us in two world wars and
The England he knew is no more
He sings the Songs of Praise but always falls asleep
For that Sunday sleep
But he knows what he knows
Sunday, Sunday
Oh, that Sunday sleep....

Sunday, Sunday here again in tidy attire
You read the colour supplement, the TV guide
You dream of protein on a plate, regret you left it quite so late
You gather the family around the table to eat enough to sleep
And Mother's Pride is your epithet
That extra slice you'll soon regret
So going out is your best bet, then bingo yourself to sleep
Oh that Sunday sleep....

Sleep is the last thing I do on a Sunday.

Z said...

First thing and the last, for me.

I stayed in bed reading for an hour this morning. Bliss.

Z makes me think of Carole King:
"Stayed in bed all morning just to pass the time..."

A great, bittersweet paean to breaking up and starting a new life.

Z said...

Ah. Well. Yesterday, the Sage brought me tea and the papers - and the dog, who wanted a cuddle. This morning, it was a book. A lazy weekend, as you see!

Gordie said...

Only the dog wanted a cuddle? :-(

Z said...

The Sage had had his cuddle already, before he brought me the tea. He received another kiss though ;-)

I, like the view, still said...
