Sunday Night Blues
by Dan Simpson

Another weekend is on the way, but I still gotta get through today
It’s a living I was told, but I think by living they meant getting old
Now when I was a young man, you know I played a pretty mean guitar
But man I never should spent so much of my time in them bars

It was late one night when I met Annette and you can bet I was good and wet,
Hadn’t thought much about the future yet, and I didn’t see the trap was set
But you know good man does the right thing when she’s buying them little shoes
And I just can’t help but reminisce when I’m feeling them Sunday night blues

The Sunday night blues
I barely get out of my work shoes and I’m feeling them Sunday night blues

Now back in the day the weekends felt so long,
I didn’t seem to need sleep or money to get on
I’d just stay up all night singing my favourite songs
And it felt like eternity before dawn
And you know back in those days I could afford to spend a whole day in bed
And I never used to wake up with such a pounding in my head

Now the march of time is often cruel, and no one wants to be caught like a fool
You get tired of mac and cheese and cereal and there aint no going back to school
Sooner or later a job seems to stick and you learn to make do
And the weekends seem shorter and shorter and you end up with the Sunday night blues

Now monday I can be a pretty gruff guy,
Tuesday and Wednesday I’m just along for the ride
Thursday I start to see a glimmer of light, but Friday’s when I come alive
These days my weekends include hockey practice and ballet school,
And its only when they’re all in bed that I feel them Sunday night blues
