Is There Life After Breakfast?

On April 3, 2006, in Music, by Leigh Graves Wolf

Great new song from former Kinks frontman Ray Davies
Thanks to NPR for the heads up…

Lift yourself out of the doldrums

Make yourself a cuppa tea

Drag your emotions out of the gutter

Don’t wallow in self pity

When you wake up, all of a fluster

Thinking life has passed you by

Give yourself a kick up the backside

Jump out of bed and punch the sky

Is there life after breakfast

Full of possibilities

Is there life after breakfast?

Yes there is, after breakfast

So don’t live in agony

Is there life after breakfast?

Yes there is, after breakfast

Cheer up son, put on the kettle

There’s no point in being glum

Make your mind up, try to forget her

Boil the tea and I’ll be mum

Is there life after breakfast?

Yes there is, after breakfast

So don’t live in agony

Is there life after breakfast?

Yes there is, after breakfast

After breakfast

Life after breakfast

After breakfast

Just because all of the plumbing

Isn’t all it used to be

Turn the tap, see, a little bit’s coming

That must make you feel relieved

Don’t turn into a total embarrassment

To your friends and family

Get out of bed, the whole day’s ahead

So take the pills and drink your tea

Is there life after breakfast

Full of possibilities

Is there life after breakfast?

Yes there is, after breakfast

So don’t be so depressive

Is there life after breakfast?

Yes there is, after breakfast

Is there life after breakfast

Full of possibilities

Is there life after breakfast?

Yes there is, after breakfast

Is there life after breakfast?

Is there life after breakfast?

Put the kettle on, mate
