Jamie Lenman – A Day In The Life lyrics
I wake in the dark and I don't complain
(Hear now, listen all who can.)
I ride to the city on a South West train
(A day in the life of a modern man.)
The beggars and the bankers, all the buggers I see
(Hear now, listen all who can.)
I don't trust them and they don't trust me
(A day in the life of a modern man.)

Father

Mother

Brother
(Brother)
I've been this way since I began
A day in the life of a modern man
(A day in the life of a modern man.)

Stare all day at a monitor screen
(Hear now, listen all who can.)
With a Slim-Fast shake in the old canteen
(A day in the life of a modern man.)
Half past five, "will you have a few beers?"
(Hear now, listen all who can.)
"Just a pint of diet coke and I'm off back, cheers"
(A day in the life of a modern man.)

Father

No song I can sing truer than
A day in the life of a modern man
(A day in the life of a modern man.)

Go home in the dark and I eat my tea
(Hear now, listen all who can.)
Just the wife and me and the BBC
(A day in the life of a modern man.)
I might see a film with a couple of the boys
(Hear now, listen all who can.)
Or gather up the band for to make some noise
(A day in the life of a modern man.)

Father
(Father)
Mother
(Mother)
Sister
(Sister)
Brother
(Brother)
From New Orleans to old Japan
A day in the life of a modern man
(A day in the life of a modern man.)

The birds all sing as I rest my head
With a good sweet girl lying in my bed
(A day in the life of a modern man.)
I might have troubles and I might give a damn
(Hear now, listen all who can.)
But I don't forget how lucky I am
(A day in the life of a modern man.)

Father
(Father)
Mother
(Mother)
Sister
(Sister)
Brother
(Brother)
From dawn nightfall, thus it ran
A day in the life of a modern man

Oh, yes!

Father
(Father)
Mother
(Mother)
Sister
(Sister)
Brother
(Brother)
For Angus, Harold, and for Dan
A day in the life of a modern man
(A day in the life of a modern man.)
