  • I'm feelin' groovy, kickin' down the cobblestones
    And there is music in every sight and every sound
    No need for headphones
    I'll tip my cap to the world even though I don't wear one
    Grinnin' at the women in the salon gettin' their hair done

    On the outside looking in like an aquarium
    Spinnin' with the stars in the planetarium
    Deliriously, mysteriously I'm feelin' curiously marvelously
    'Super Duper' like Joss Stone

    My heart melts like ice cream cones
    Grinnin' like a dog diggin' up dinosaur bones
    I used to be fossilized but now I'm out of my shell
    And I'm happier than whores with chivalrous clientèle

    This can't be real, I must be dreamin' could somebody slap me
    I'm feelin' so mischievous, original cheeky chappy
    It must be ages since I felt satisfied
    Just to be Just Jack and just that, still intact

    It's just another one of those glory days
    Jump out your bed, shake your head, clear the haze
    Step out your house and prepared to be amazed
    It's just another one of those, just another one of those

    Just another one of those glory days
    Jump out your bed, shake your head, clear the haze
    Step out your house and prepared to be amazed
    It's just another one of those glory days

    I'm so warm, new dawn, reborn, new forms
    And I'm thinkin' about my boys Joelly chic and Freshly Sean
    And I know you're underrated but one day we'll all make it
    And walk around naked with our bullocks platinum plated

    Anyway, I'm off track gotta stop that
    And get back to the high street, I need somethin' to eat
    Stop at the cafe, coffee and a salt beef bagel
    Yeah, I know I'm Cain'd but now I'm feelin' Abel

    I used to get so paranoid In places like this
    Stayed in my house for days with my weed psychosis
    My neurosis was thinkin' everybody's staring at my red eyes
    And shifty expression but now I'm past carin'

    And I can feel that destiny is on my side
    And by the looks of things, fate came along for the ride
    Behind green skies, I can see my girl's eyes
    Damn it, I'm in love with this planet, you gotta realize

    It's just another one of those glory days
    Jump out your bed, shake your head, clear the haze
    Step out your house and prepared to be amazed
    It's just another one of those, just another one of those

    Just another one of those glory days
    Jump out your bed, shake your head, clear the haze
    Step out your house and prepare to be amazed
    It's just another one of those glory days

    It's time to look to the future
    Just when I was gettin' used to the humdrum
    I realized in the depths of my depression
    That I really wanted to be someone

    So let's smash the past like a tacky figurine
    On the back page of a supplementary magazine
    But for the time being, bump your head to the beat
    Sit back, put your feet up and relax

    It's just another one of those glory days
    Jump out your bed, shake your head, clear the haze
    Step out your house and prepared to be amazed
    It's just another one of those, just another one of those

    Just another one of those glory days
    Jump out your bed, shake your head, clear the haze
    Step out your house and prepare to be amazed
    It's just another one of those glory days
