“Pleasant Valley Sunday” Lyrics

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

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday (Sunday)
Charcoal burnin’ everywhere
Rows of houses that are all the same
And no one seems 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 (Sunday)
Here in status symbol land
Mothers complain about how hard life is
And the kids just don’t understand

Creature comfort goals
Only numb my soul
Make it hard for me to see (Ahh)
My thoughts all seem to stray
Places far away
I need a change of scenery

Da da-da da, da da-da da
Da da-da da, da da-da daa
Da da-da da, da da-da da
Da da-da da, da da-da daa

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday (Sunday)
Charcoal burnin’ everywhere
Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Here in status symbol land

(Another Pleasant Valley Sunday) Ah, Pleasant Valley Sunday
(Another Pleasant Valley Sunday) Ah, Pleasant Valley Sunday
(Another Pleasant Valley Sunday) Ah, Pleasant Valley Sunday
(Another Pleasant Valley Sunday)
