Perfect Day

  • Just a perfect day
    Drink Sangria in the park
    Then later
    When it gets dark, we go home

    Just a perfect day
    Feed animals in the zoo
    Then later
    A movie, too, and then home

    Oh, it's such a perfect day
    I'm glad I spent it with you
    Oh, such a perfect day
    You just keep me hanging on
    You just keep me hanging on

    Just a perfect day
    Problems all left alone
    Weekenders on our own
    It's such fun

    Just a perfect day
    You made me forget myself
    I thought I was
    Someone else, someone good

    Oh, it's such a perfect day
    I'm glad I spent it with you
    Oh, such a perfect day
    You just keep me hanging on
    You just keep me hanging on

    You're going to reap just what you sow
    You're going to reap just what you sow
    You're going to reap just what you sow
    You're going to reap just what you sow
    You're going to reap just what you sow Writer/s: Lou Reed
