Sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset, swiftly go the days Sunrise, sunset, you wake up then you undress, it always is the same The sunrise and the sunsets, you're lying while you confess, keep trying to explain The sunrise and the sunsets, you realise then you forget what you've been trying to retain
But everybody knows it's all about the things that get stuck inside of your head Like the songs your roommate sings, a vision of her body as she stretches out on your bed And she raised her hands in the air, asked you when was the last time you looked in the mirror Because you've changed Yeah, you've changed
The sunrise, the sunsets, you're hopeful and then you regret, the circle never breaks With a sunrise and a sunset, there's a change of heart or address, is there nothing that remains? For a sunrise or a sunset, you're manic or you're depressed, will you ever feel okay? For a sunrise or a sunset, your lover is an actress, did you really think she'd stay?
For a sunrise or a sunset, you're either coming or you just left, but you're always on the way Towards a sunrise or a sunset, a scribble or a sonnet, they are really just the same To the sunrise or a sunset, the master and his servant have exactly the same fate It's a sunrise and a sunset, from a cradle to a casket, there is no way to escape The sunrise and a sunset, hold your sadness like a puppet, keep putting on the play
But everything you do is leading to the point where you just won't know what to do At that moment you may laugh but there is someone there who will be laughing louder than you So it's true, the trick is complete, you become everything you said you never would be You're a fool; you're a fool!
Sunrise, sunset, sunrise, sunset, sunrise and the sunsets Sunrise, sunset, sunrise, the sunsets, the sunrise, the sunsets Sunrise, sunset, go home to your apartment, put the cassette in the tape deck and let that fever play Sunrise, sunset, where are you Arienette? Where are you Arienette?

"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" was written by Nick Lowe in 1974. The original version with his group Brinsley Schwarz was kind of somber, but Elvis Costello made it a classic with his 1978 uptempo take.
