Another Day

Ain’t it funny how time seems to fly
When you’ve got something that needs to be done
Ain’t it funny how time slips away
When you have got errands to run
No matter how you try
It passes you right by
There’s nothing left to say except
There goes another day

Ain’t it strange how plans can go astray
And you never get a chance to get it right
Ain’t it strange how time seems to run
So that day is suddenly night
No matter how you try
It passes you right by
There’s nothing left to say except
There goes another day

It’s maddening how time seems to fly
When you’ve important things to do
It’s frustrating how time slips away
And how the flow is always against you
No matter how you try
It passes you right by
There’s nothing left to say except
There goes another day

Ain’t it funny how time seems to fly
When you’ve got something that needs to be done
Ain’t it funny how time slips away
And you never get time to have fun
No matter how you try
It passes you right by
There’s nothing left to say except
There goes another day

Ain’t it funny how time seems to fly
Ain’t it funny how time passes by
Ain’t it funny how time slips away
And you realise – that you have lost another day

Notes

This was composed in 1985 and most recently recorded in 1987. I used Audacity to normalise it and then boost the volume after using Magix Audio Cleaning Lab to transfer it from tape and remove some hiss and tape noise.
