It's much too groovy a summer's day
To waste running 'round in the city
But here on the sand I can dream away
Or look at the girls in their pretty

It's a turn down day, nothin' on my mind
It's a turn down day and I dig it

There's nothing easier I can do
Than lyin' around doing nothing

It's a turn down day, just a turn 'round day
It's a turn down day and I dig it

Soft summer breeze and the surf rolls in
To laughter of small children playin'
Someone's radio has the news tuned in
But nobody cares what he's sayin'

Don't you know
It's a turn down day, nothin' on my mind
It's a turn down day and I dig it

Things that are waitin' to mess my mind
Will just have to wait 'til tomorrow

It's a turn down day, just a turn 'round day
It's a turn down day and I dig it

It's a turn down day, nothin' on my mind
It's a turn down day, just a turn 'round day
It's a turn down day, just a turn 'round day

    General CommentThe music was written by David Blume shortly after the assassination of JFK .
    The original version ( which is quite beautiful ) was a sad, minor key jazz tune
    played with only piano, drums, and standup bass . Dave came up with the title
    which reflected the sadness that everyone was feeling at the time , a Turn-Down Day .
    Lyricist Jerry Keller took the title , but his lyrics really did not reflect the sad event
    that inspired the music . I don't think Dave was too fond of the Cyrkle's version ,
    which bore little resemblance to the haunting demo he recorded .
