“Sweet Thursday” LYRICS

What a jerk of a day was Wednesday
By the time I got to sleep
All the interest in life that I had left
I’d have sold you awful cheap.

But I opened my eyes this morning
And I knew by every sign
That whatever I wanted to do today
Would be sure to turn out fine.

When the sun flew in my window
And crept in bed with me,
I knew that this would be
A Sweet Thursday.

When the wind got confidential
And whispered through a tree,
I knew that this would be
A Sweet Thursday.

My head was up in the clouds,
My heart was flapping its wings.
I looked at the sky
And wanted to try
To do impossible things.

What a day it’s been for dreaming,
My dreams have all come true.
And if one I kept for you
Turns out to be right,
It’s going to be a Sweet Thursday Night for me!
It’s going to be a Sweet Thursday Night!

A good kind of confident feeling
Has followed me all day long.
My luck was in
I played to win –
I knew I couldn’t go wrong.

A bright red geranium told me
Today was my day for fun.
A katydid
Said, “Take it, kid –
You better take it and run!”

Some shirts hanging up on a clothesline
Kept waving their tails my way –
“Hiya, Fauna! Hiya, babe!
Ain’t this a doll of a day?”

Hi boys!
Ain’t this a doll of a day?

When the sun flew in my window
And crept in bed with me,
I knew that this would be
A Sweet Thursday.

When the wind got confidential
And whispered through a tree,
I knew that this would be
A Sweet Thursday.

My head was up in the clouds,
My heart was flapping its wings.
I looked at the sky
And wanted to try
To do impossible things.

What a day it’s been for dreaming,
My dreams have all come true.
And if one for Doc and Sue
Turns out to be right,
It’s going to be a Sweet Thursday Night for me!
It’s going to be a Sweet Thursday Night!
