"Grey Day" as written by Graham/barson Mcpherson and Lee/foreman Thompson....
When I get home it's late at night,
I'm black and bloody from my life,
I haven't time to clean my hands,
Cuts will only sting me through my dreams.

It's well past midnight as I lie
In a semi-conscious state.
I dream of people fighting me
Without any reason I can see.

In the morning I awake,
My arms my legs my body aches,
The sky outside is wet and grey
So begins another weary day.
So begins another weary day.

After eating I go out,
People passing by me shout.
I can't stand this agony
Why don't they talk to me?

In the park I have to rest
I lie down and I do my best,
The rain is falling on my face
I wish I could sink without a trace.

In the morning I awake,
My arms my legs my body aches,
The sky outside is wet and grey,
So begins another weary day.
So begins another weary day.

In the park I have to rest
I lie down and I do my best,
The rain is falling on my face
I wish I could sink without a trace.

In the morning I awake,
My arms my legs my body aches,
The sky outside is wet and grey,
So begins another weary day.
So begins another weary day.

    General CommentThe English Way of Life

    You drink all weekend to forget
    you've worked all week.

    You worked all week because
    you've got to pay for what you and your mates drink.

    Americans: they eat fast food all week hoping they
    won't be caught in a gunfight next weekend.

    Canadians: we watch hockey games during the week
    then we all go seal-hunting on weekends.

    General CommentI love this song so much.

    These Madness guys, all of 'em, you can't help
    falling in love when you watch their old clips.
    I mean, even I, a lass, can appreciate their sound
    without pictures. But it's too late for me now.
    I'm madly in love with 20-years-old Bedders.

    I'll have to find some look-alike to die a happy girl.

    General CommentDo I always end up talking about the song's video?
    Yes, I do.
    Well, in that one Suggs' in bed and cannot sleep,
    Chas has a mad clown painted face and they're having a gig in a shop window.

    The best clips on YouTube are the one with the
    original 30 seconds comic intro.
    All their first clips have one.
    Grey Day's not the best, only three of the boys seems naked in bed and show us signs with the
    song's title.

    General CommentI laughed the first time I saw that intro showing someone leaving a b&b, suddenly Barson pops out of nowhere and says: Woo, tha was the
    Bed and Breakfast Man!

    Baggy Trousers' intro is so nutts I let you see for
    yourself.

    Suggs plays a car salesman in Shut Up.

    Chris, or maybe Lee makes a warning speech to kids viewers telling them not to plug electric guitar
    prior to play in a pool such as in "It Must Be Love".
