Just a sec more in my bed
Hope my machine's working right
When it's just precisely tuned
That shit's gonna be so nice

[Chorus]
Make sure my kid's got a jacket
Keys and coat and shoes and hat
Strap a stroller to my back
Bouncing along every crack

What good is it to make it fast
Sing a song to pass the playground
What can I do as traffic pass
Guard my girl from muffler's black gas
What can I do to make it fast
Pop a jump but not too hard
And we'll end up at the ramp
Stop and look at the traffic signal

Sec more in my bed
Hope my machine's working right
When it's just precisely tuned
That shit's gonna be so nice

[Chorus]

What good is it to make it fast
Sing a song to pass the playground
What can I do as traffic pass
Guard my girl from muffler's black gas
What can I do to make it fast
Pop a jump but not too hard
And we'll end up at the ramp
Stop and look at the traffic signal

    General Comment:just realized that while singing this song in my bed that "just a SECCCC moooreeee in maaahhhh beeeeeeddd" sounds like a yawn.
    i know this because i sang it while yawning.
    just saying.
    they probably didn't intend for that but it worked out well for them.

    General Comment:in the album version, the line "that shit's gonna be so nice" is changed to "how it turns out so nice"

    General Comment:official Daily Routine lyrics

    Just a sec more in my bed
    Hope my machine's working right
    When it's just precisely tuned
    That's how it's going to end up so nice

    Make sure my kid's got a jacket
    Keys and coat and shoes and hat
    Strap a stroller to my back
    Bouncing along every crack

    What good is it to make it fast
    Sing a song to pass the playground
    What can I do as traffic pass
    Guard my girl from muffler's black gas
    What can I do to make it fast
    Pop a jump but not too hard
    Take a little look up at the ramp
    Stop and look at the traffic signal

    Just a sec more in my bed
    Hope my machine's working right

    Song Meaning:I think this song describes Panda Bear living through his whole daily routine (taking his daughter to school or the playground) and then waking up to realize it was all a dream and the day hasn't even started yet. When he finally wakes up, his energy is already drained, so he keeps pleading for "just a sec more" in his bed.
    The transition from dream to real life is extremely accurate and well defined. Everything slows down and the bells in the background start to resemble an alarm clock.

    General Comment:hope THE machine is working right

    ITS HOW it comes out so nice

    ...WE'LL END UP on our backs and look up at the traffic signal?

    ...should the first "what good is it" be "what can i do"?

    General Comment:i made an account just to say that the intro organ that gradually speeds up eventually sounds like an alarm clock that wakes him up to start his day, then as he hits the snooze the vocals kick in. dont think about that listening to it on headphones at work. u may start tearing up. i did when i noticed it after the 50th listen. THEN after the final "TRAFFIC SIGNAL" the organ kicks back in you can picture a traffic light going bonkers to the sound and it eventually fades back to him in bed with the alarm clock going off as he is asking for "just a sec more".....
