The Lyrics

...the words of "day in the life" inserted into "run for your life"...
twas today's news, that i read, and i heard...
makin' grade was a lucky man
and though the news was sad, that i heard...
still i laughed hard as i can

i saw a glum photograph of this man, how absurd
blew his mind really grand, how absurd
light had changed without a glance
that's the absurd

well, you know a crowd of folks stood by
thought his face had crossed their minds
he might have spent his while life, filin'...
through the house of lords, divine

saw a film at this time, as i planned...oh my word
fight the war, english man, oh my word
read the book and it was grand
till the end...of the words

woke up all a-squirmin'
and i fell right out of bed
hair was so disturbin'
ran a comb across my head

i took the stairs down a flight, cup was downed for my thirst
late again, i had found, that's the worst
grabbin' up my coat and hat
that i disperse

the bus is where i head with the herd
and upstairs, its a smoke, i dragged
then words were fed to me in a blur
and a dream is what i had

there was a whole buncha holes, quite a haul, what a stir
though the holes were small that occurred
still they had to count them all
in the i heard

turn me on
turn me on
turn me on
turn me on

Not only a wonderful smash, but a wonderful smoosh, too. (has that term died out here? seems to).
