Lyrics
Better By Monday

it is sunny
wonderful day
lazy sunday
children at play
hot days summer
out on the beach
happy stoner
slow in his speech

summer comes summer goes autumn begins

dancing geishas
chanting elvis
on a video
swings his pelvis
the reserved girls
look a little blush
the music ends
an erie hush

the king lives the king dies affecting lives

chorus
better by monday better by monday

terrorist penguins
making a list
scratching ther heads
for the next hit
all will agree
for tuna fish
how wonderful
we will be rich

fry the rich eat the fish what a dish

chorus
better by monday better by monday

prairie canary
singing his song
drunk on berries
sunglasses on
wobbles on legs
wobbles in voice
bird on a wire
steadys his poise

build a nest chirp the rest morning pest

chorus
better by monday better by monday

it's monday today...
...and i thought everything would be better by today too.
i love the 60's psychedelic pop sound approach. are you familiar with
XTC's release under the name 'The Dukes of Stratosphere'? it was
basically XTC's 60's psychedelic pop record. great stuff. this song
reminds me of 'The Dukes'.

I love your voice on this, the timbre of your voice and your laid back
approach is really cool. great rock voice. I love how each verse tells a
different story with its own 'summary' with the chorus bringing it all
together.

Performance-wise it was loose in a coupla spots, other than that i
enjoyed this song very much.

i hadn't been thinking XTC when I did this, but now when you mention it. Beatles, XTC, Hendrix, Todd Rundgren, and Bowie have always been a influence. So I'm kinda have been doing a series of songs loosely in there styles

I know of the loose spots you're talking about. But I left them because as a mock 60's band you hear a missed note or out off tune on old records. But I'm sure I'll fix those and a few other things. Can never stop tinkering.
Thanks for the input.

Far out man!
Outta site! Groovy! Like...you're freakin' me out man! Having lived (so I'm
told) through the period in question, let me say that this is an excellent
reproduction of that sound and feel. Too freakin' cool Vic!

Be well!

Thanks!!!! i hope this didnot set off any severe flashbacks

Well the reply button isn't working but this should do. i have fixed a
few glitches since posting this. i think this song has been sitting in my
conscience since i bought sgt pepper back in '67. ironically if dm is the
saddest chord of all - that d7 is one of the happiest. i wonder if i have
a few more like this in me. this is one of my favorites.

since i never could
play with the groups from the 60's, this is close enough. ray davies was a master of great lyrics. thanks for the listen

I was six when this was recorded...
...and it was the summer of 1968 and I just loved this song. I used to dance all around the front room in my Tye Dye shirt and the strawberry incense would flavor the air until finally I would fall down exhasted onto a bean bag couch. Thanks for bringing back some great memories with this great tune!
