"Sunday Sunday" as written by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Steven Alexander James and David Rowntree....
Sunday, Sunday, here again in tidy attire
You read the color supplement, the TV guide
You dream of protein on a plate
Regret you left it quite so late
To gather the family round the table to eat enough to sleep
Oh, the Sunday sleep

Sunday, Sunday here again, a walk in the park
You meet an old soldier and talk of the past
He fought for us in two world wars
And says the England he knew is no more
He sings the Songs of Praise every week but always falls asleep
For the Sunday sleep

Sunday
Sunday
Oh Sunday sleep

Sunday, Sunday, here again in tidy attire
You read the color supplement, the TV guide
You dream of protein on a plate
Regret you left it quite so late
To gather the family round the table to eat enough to sleep

And Mother's Pride is your epithet
That extra slice you will soon regret
So going out is your best bet
Then bingo yourself to sleep
Oh, the Sunday sleep

    General CommentI like the subtitle of this song; "Legislated nostalgia: to force a body of people to have memories they do not actually possess." Think about that when you see some TV commercial for the music of a specific decade boasting about what "great times" those were, when you don't remember them being so good.

    General CommentProbably the greatest example of social satire in a song since Ray Davies. Damon was in the zone during the entire "Modern Life is Rubbish" album. He should of carried on writing these kind of songs instead of those awful social-comment character comedies that he began to write on Parklife and which reached it's peak on The Great Escape (at best a very average record).

    The Great Escape album was... Well, very bad. Lol. Just another attempt at a 'better' Parklife.

    But this song is about Sunday life and traditions in England.

    I've always found these lines a bit heartbreaking (in the middle of a pretty chirpy number). We all have problems with the way the Greatest Generation was treated as they grew elderly.
