Hear now, listen all who can
A day in the life of a modern man
I wake in the dark and I don't complain
I ride to the city on a South West train
The beggars and the bankers, all the buggers I see
I don't trust them and they don't trust me

Father, mother, sister, brother
I've been this way since I began
A day in the life of a modern man

Stare all day at a monitor screen
With a Slim-Fast shake in the old canteen
Half past five, "will you have a few beers?"
"Just a pint of diet coke and I'm off back, cheers"

Father, mother, sister, brother
No song I can sing truer than
A day in the life of a modern man

Home in the dark and I eat my tea
Just the wife and me and the BBC
I might see a film with a couple of the boys
Or gather up the band for to make some noise

Father, mother, sister, brother
From New Orleans to old Japan
A day in the life of a modern man

The birds all sing as I rest my head
With a good sweet girl lying in my bed
I might have troubles and I might give a damn
But I don't forget how lucky I am

Father, mother, sister, brother
From dawn nightfall, thus it ran
A day in the life of a modern man

Father, mother, sister, brother
For Angus, Harold, and for Dan
A day in the life of a modern man
