1. Take it lying down

Hey, what did you say?
Was I in your way? Yeah, sorry OK.
Oh, well what do you know?
Yes, I suppose so. Sorry gotta go

Dreaming of a summer with a sun thatís beating down
Even though it burns you, you take it lying down
But you must escape, you say you must be free
But it seems to me like a different monotony
But itís better than
Watching the rain fall, watching the prices rise

Jean, thatís the one I mean
He says heís sixteen, if you know what I mean
Shirl, is that your little girl?
The one with the curls, you must think her the world

Ddreaming of an lover who always comes around
Even though he hurts you, you take it lying down
But you must escape, you say you must be free
But it seems to me like a different monotony
But itís better than
Watching the rain fall, watching the prices rise

Sing, see what it brings
It brings you everything, it brings you nothing
Hey, soon be on my way
Little more to say, could be any day

Dreaming of an ending in solid oaken brown
Even though they burn you, you take it lying down
But you must escape, you say you must be free
But it seems to me like a different monotony
But itís better than
Watching the rain fall, watching the prices rise
And pushing the daisies up
