"Another Day" as written by and Lennon/innes/mccartney....
Every day she takes a morning bath she wets her hair
Wraps a towel around her as she's heading for the bedroom chair
It's just another day
Slipping into stockings, stepping into shoes
Dipping in the pocket of her raincoat
It's just another day
At the office where the papers grow she takes a break
Drinks another coffe and she finds it hard to stay awake
It's just another day

Do do do do do do, it's just another day
Do do do do do do, it's just another day

So sad, so sad
Sometimes she feels so sad
Alone in her apartment she'd dwell
Till the man of her dreams come to break the spell
Ah, stay, don't stand her up
And he comes and he stays but he leaves the next day
So sad
Sometimes she feels so sad

As she posts another letter to the sound of five
People gather 'round her and she finds it hard to stay alive
It's just another day

Do do do do do do, it's just another day
Do do do do do do, it's just another day

So sad, so sad
Sometimes she feels so sad
Alone in her apartment she'd dwell
Till the man of her dreams come to break the spell
Ah, stay, don't stand her up
And he comes and he stays but he leaves the next day
So sad
Sometimes she feels so sad

Every day she takes a morning bath she wets her hair
Wraps a towel around her as she's heading for the bedroom chair
It's just another day
Slipping into stockings, stepping into shoes
Dipping in the pocket of her raincoat
It's just another day

Do do do do do do, it's just another day
Do do do do do do, it's just another day

    General CommentThis song is so perfect at describing a life. A single woman loves a man who comes and goes without ever committing to her in any way. Due to this, everything else in her life kind of fades into a blur around her as she becomes worn down by the situation with the man. She's feeling like her life is just a permanent lull. Monotonous, boring, always the same, filled only with her work. Every day is "just another day" in a long series of days exactly like the one before it. I love how the lyrics focus on the tiny details of getting ready for her day. Those details are all that make up most of her life. The kind of sadness associated with this concept is expressed very well in a clever way using that kind of imagery.

    I sometimes find myself relating to this song, because at times, a situation can just cast a huge shadow over everything else in life and then the days just all seem the same because the fog of it paints everything in the same boring haze.

    General CommentAn interesting side-note in this song is his reference to 'As she posts another letter to the sound of five'. I investigated and found that 'The Sound of 5 a.m." was an instrumental pop hit which was played on the English radio stations in the late 40's and early 50's. McCartney mentions it because it always seemed to be on the radio his mother was listening to while working around the house.

    My OpinionA lot of controversy around this song when it came out. Linda co-wrote it. She liked to add a bit of reggae to songs so it is very likely that the faux-reggae sound is her idea. However, everyone wailed when Paul added her to the writing credit. How could this be? She has no prior musical training, blah, blah, blah - while forgetting that none of the Beatles could read or write music either. Other critics asserted that Paul put her on the credits to somehow get an extra monetary percentage for co-writing. Ridiculous. Then the critics pounced that the music was insipid, sugary pap. One even went so far as to call it an advertisement for vaginal deodorant. Nonetheless, the general public did take a liking to the song and it performed very well on the charts. It is definitely in the 'Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da' vein. But no-one puts them together like this except Paul. Yeah, the lyrics frequently tend toward molasses but in retrospect this is one of Paul's more coherent and best resolved post-Beatle lyrics. The melody is top-notch as well and even edges into precisely conveying the heartbreak and isolation to the listener much like he did with 'Eleanor Rigby'. At the time when this come on the radio most people still living in the musical fallout of Beatle glory would disparage this tune or even turn it off. These days it comes back and has aged so well. A welcome song to hear every now and then.

    General Commentthis song is talking about the routine in our material life in which we are all go in ordinary circles and only concern about our work,and only love can break the continuety of that circle but just for a short time and then we are back in the circle of ordinary life
    the ABBA have realesed a song which has the same meanings called "the day before you came "
    both of these songs is owsome

    General CommentI've been a fan of Paul McCartney for some time, and I must say, I've never liked this song at all. Check out the rocking B-side to this single, "Oh Woman Oh Why," which is much better than this dull little tune.

    General CommentI think this song is about a beautiful, but lonely woman. She's just living a boring life, but she looks like she has so much more to give. She has a man (or men) who filter in and out of her life, but at the end of it all, its just another day of the same for her.
