  • Wake up on Sunday morning
    Everything feels so boring
    Is that where it ends
    Live your life through a lens

    Hair is the new hat, brown is the new black
    She shouldn't wear this, he shouldn't wear that
    Pleasure and leisure, make mine a double measure with friends
    Fashion tardis down at Quo Vadis
    Who laughs the longest who drives the hardest
    Pleasure and leisure, make mine a double measure with friends
    Just because I ain't double barreled
    Don't mean I haven't traveled well
    Can't you tell!
    Oh no it's quite appalling
    Your conversation is boring as hell, oh well!
    Wake up on Sunday morning
    And everything feels so boring
    Is that where it ends
    With your life through a lens

    And now your boyfriend's suspicious
    So go home and wash the dishes
    And wash them well so he can't tell

    She's looking real drab just out of rehab
    I'm talking football she's talking ab fab
    Your clothes are very kitch
    Just because your daddy is rich
    You sound so funny with your voice all plummy
    Now your check's just bounced better run to your mummy
    And you know it's a class act she'll never ask for it back

    Just because I ain't double barreled
    Don't mean I haven't traveled well
    Can't you tell!
    Mix with the local gentry and don't crash Tarquin's Bentley
    I'll take the bends with our life through a lens
    You're scared of the poor and needy
    Is that why you're all inbreedy?
    They're just like you, they need love too

    Wake up on Sunday morning
    And everything feels so boring
    Is that where it ends
    With your life through a lens

    And now your boyfriend's suspicious
    So go home and wash the dishes
    And wash them well so he can't tell Writer/s: GUY CHAMBERS, ROBERT PETER WILLIAMS
