"Beautiful Day" as written by and Marc Francis/mackenzie Costanzo....
CHORUS
What a beautiful day (hey hey)
I'm the king of all time
And nothing is impossible
In my all powerful mind

It was the fifth of November, when time it went back
Some say that's impossible, but you and I never looked back
And wasn't it incredible, so beautiful and above all
Just to see the fuse get lit this time
To light the real bonfire, for all time

Chorus
I was drinking in the night club
It felt good to be back
When Hepburn said I love you
And Flyn said, make mine a double jack
Then we planned the revolution
To make things better for all time
And when the barman said that was crazy
And ordered up a bottle of wine

Chorus (x2)
In there on the big screen, every night I've seen
The way all things could be
For me, for me, etc........

(Chorus instrumental)
The news broke after midnight,
That we pulled the temple down without a sound
But the generals they were hiding out
And the ministers, Well! They'd all gone to ground
Wealth re-distribution, became the new solution
So I got a paper bag, but you got the one with all the holes

Chorus (x2)
That's because nothing is impossible
In my own powerful mind

    General CommentThis is an awesome song i can't believe that no one has commented. For me this song is about revolution, finnishing off what Guy Fawkes started. But only doing it in our minds, because anything in possible in our minds.

    General CommentI thought it was to do with when you wake up and its an amazing day, you see all your friends and life is good and you feel like you're invincible and can take on the whole world - hence the revolution references.

    I also though it was "Guvara" and not the barman who said that was crazy :p

    General Comment"in my all powerful mind" -this is someone dreaming of revolution (plus drinking with Errol FLynn and getting it on with Audrey Hepburn). It is GueVara in verse 2 -possibly the most famous revolutionary in history.

    Is the bit about paper bags an acknowledgement that revolution will not really make people's lives better, much as we may want it?

    General CommentI disagree with temporary sedative about the guy fawkes bit. Unless the Levs don't really know who Guy Fawkes was (eg an extremist Catholic terrorist), I couldn't really imagine such a left wing, atheist band to really be singing his praise.

    General CommentI think superfurryfreak is closer to the mark, to me the song is a motivator, and it makes me feel that I can accomplish anything, even when those that should know better tell me it's impossible.

    General CommentI find it ironic that the general media, used this as an upbeat happy song without going into what the lyrics were about. I know my local radio station and the Daily Record(Scottish national paper) used it for radio ads. This song is about dreaming of revolution and thinking it will improve things but realising in reality nothing will change. The reference:

    Wealth re-distribution, became the new solution
    So I got a paper bag, but you got the one with all the holes

    I think is in reference to the Russian revolution and communism promising things will get better but they didn't
