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

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Charcoal burning 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
Mr. Green
He's so serene
He's got a tv in every room

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Here in status symbol land
Mothers complain about how hard life is
And the kids just don't understand

Creature comfort goals
They only numb my soul and make it hard for me to see
My thoughts all seem to stray to places far away
I need a change of scenery

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

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday

    I saw a tv special with carole king and her husband gerry, barry mann and some others and carole revealed that she and her husband had been "dumped" in a rental house on pleasant valley way in west orange, nj, and that's where I grew up until the age of 14. She said they were bored, sitting around on a sunday and that's what gave them the inspiration for the song.
