“Pleasant Valley Sunday” Lyrics

The local rock group down the street
Is trying hard to learn their song
They serenade the weekend squire
Who just came out to mow his lawn

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Charcoal burning everywhere
Mothers complain about how hard life is
And the kids don’t seem to care

See Mrs. Gray, she’s proud today
Because her roses are in bloom
And Mr. Green, he’s so serene
He’s got a T.V. in every room

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Here in status symbol land
Rows of houses that are all the same
And no one understands

Creature comfort goals
They only numb my soul
And make it hard for me to see (Ah-ah-ah-ah)
My thoughts all seem to stray
To places far away
I need a change of scenery

La ba-bum bum, bum ba-bum ba
Da ba-bum ba, da ba-bum ba
Ba ba-bum bum, bum bum-bum ba
Da ba-bum ba, dum ba-bum ba

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Charcoal burning everywhere
Another Pleasant Valley Sunday, yeah
Here in status symbol land

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday (Sunday)
Another Pleasant Valley Sunday (Sunday)
Another Pleasant Valley Sunday (Pleasant Valley)

“Thank you.”
