Rock Lyrics Vol. 14 – Sunday Morning

This is the last post for my Weekday series. To review, there was Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

And now we have Sunday Morning, in the evening (it’s Monday in Australia), but let’s not quibble. We are doing Sunday.

Even though these lyrics don’t have a whole lot to do with Sunday, it’s a fun, lively, ageless tune and it features Gwen Stefani. Need I say more?

The lyrics are about her breakup with Tony Kanal, a member of the band, as portrayed by the fellow sitting on the swing. In that sense, it is kind of a sad song, but it ends with a food fight, so all is well.

From the 1995 album Tragic Kingdom. Enjoy!

Sunday Morning

No Doubt

Sappy pathetic little me
That was the girl I used to be
You had me on my knees

I’d trade you places any day
I’d never thought you could be that way
But you looked like me on Sunday

You came in with the breeze
On Sunday morning
You sure have changed since yesterday
Without any warning
I thought I knew you
I thought I knew you
I thought I knew you well, so well

You’re trying my shoes on for a change
They look so good but fit so strange
Out of fashion, so I can complain

You came in with the breeze
On Sunday morning
You sure have changed since yesterday
Without any warning
I thought I knew you
I thought I knew you
I thought I knew you well, so well

I know who I am, but who are you?
You’re not looking like you used to
You’re on the other side of the mirror
So nothing’s looking quite as clear
Thank you for turning on the lights
Thank you, now you’re the parasite
I didn’t think you had it in you
And now you’re looking like I used to!

You came in with the breeze
On Sunday morning
You sure have changed since yesterday
Without any warning
And you want me badly
Because you cannot have me
I thought I knew you
But I’ve got a new view
I thought I knew you well, oh well

On Sunday morning
And I don’t want it
Sunday morning
I thought I knew you
Sunday morning
Oh you want me badly
Can have it
Sunday morning
Sunday morning
Sunday morning

Thanks for coming out! Live Long And Prosper.

The Upcoming Week

For the rock song lyrics project I am doing, there will be two main themes in the upcoming week:

  • Songs about the life of a rock star, as written by rock stars
  • Songs about the days of the week

There will be one or two surprises in both series, but I was most surprised by the life of a rock star tunes. As I told you in this post, I rarely listen to the lyrics of a song, so I was totally taken aback when I researched songs for this series. “That’s what this song is about?!? Who knew?” Well, people who listen to lyrics knew. I didn’t.  😳

As for the days of the week, some songs will probably pop into your head automatically … say, for instance, Monday, Friday and Saturday. You may be surprised that I didn’t go with some obvious choices. You’ll have to wait and see! I’m starting the week off with Monday, because for me that’s when the week starts. And because I really like the upcoming Sunday post and I want to save it for last. It’s fun!

I may throw in a random post here or there as well as these themed series. For instance, today we are going out to Shaw’s Maple Syrup & Pancake House (along with several thousand other people, I’m sure) and I’ll take some photographs and make a post about the trip. Life goes on.

Live Long And Prosper!
