Got the Monday morning feel
Yep, yep, yeah

Monday wasn't really real
Yep, yeah

Oh lying on a naked bed
Yep, yep, yeah

With an Alka Seltzer head
Yep, yeah


All right

Oh Lucy looked sweet just strolling down Newport Street
Talking about Lu' 
What are you going to do?
I feel so bad
Have you ever been had
Ah by sweet Lucy?

Took an early morning shower
Yep, yep, yeah

Well I wasted about half an hour
Yep, yeah

I heard the ringing of the bel
Yep, yep, yeah

It's Lucy with the cleaning towel
Yep, yeah


Oh I feeling like the Sunday Times
Yep, yep, yeah

Soaked in California wine
Yep, yeah

Oh Lucy kicked me in the hole
Yep, yep, yeah

A tennis' worth of aching balls
Oh Lucy

Oh Lucy looked sweet just strolling down the Newport Streets  (you'll have to)
Talking about Lu' 
What are you going to do?
And I feel so bad
Have you ever been had?
Got a dose from now sweet Lucy

Ah Lucy looked sweet just strolling down Newport Street
Talking about Lu' - who?
What are you going to do?
Oh and I feel so bad
Have you ever been had?
Ah by now sweet Lucy

That's a groove, isn't it?
