  • Lyrics
  • From the dew-soaked hedge creeps a crawly caterpillar
    When the dawn begins to crack
    It's all part of my autumn almanac
    Breeze blows leaves of a musty-colored yellow
    So I sweep them in my sack
    Yes, yes, yes, it's my autumn almanac

    Friday evenings, people get together
    Hiding from the weather
    Tea and toasted, buttered currant buns
    Can't compensate for lack of sun
    Because the summer's all gone

    La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    Oh, my poor rheumatic back
    Yes, yes, yes, it's my autumn almanac
    La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    Oh, my autumn almanac
    Yes, yes, yes, it's my autumn almanac

    I like my football on a Saturday
    Roast beef on Sundays, all right
    I go to Blackpool for my holidays
    Sit in the open sunlight

    This is my street, and I'm never gonna leave it
    And I'm always gonna to stay here
    If I live to be ninety-nine
    'Cause all the people I meet
    Seem to come from my street
    And I can't get away
    Because it's calling me (come on home)
    Hear it calling me (come on home)

    La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    Oh, my autumn Armagnac
    Yes, yes, yes, it's my autumn almanac
    La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    Oh, my autumn almanac
    Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes

    Bop-bop-boom-bop-bop-boom-bop-bop-boom-bop-bop-boom (whoa!)
