#80 Waking Up – Elastica

Back to 1995 and there are Elastica sounding (and looking) as fresh as daisies. The beautiful and talented (and sadly much sued) Ms Frischmann’s alternative to the Bartlett was here in its heyday.Great track and one of several (3, 4?) taken from the eponymous album (connection, line-up, stutter) … more on this later when there have been adjustments …

Lyrics

I’d work very hard but I’m lazy
I can’t take the pressure and it’s starting to show
In my heart you know that it pains me
A life of leisure is no life you know

Waking up and getting up has never been easy,
Oh oh, I think you should know.
Waking up and getting up has never been easy,
Oh, oh, I think you should know.
Oh, oh, I think you should go.
Make a cup of tea, and put a record on.

I’d work very hard but I’m lazy
I’ve got a lot of songs but they’re all in my head.
I’ll get a guitar and a lover who pays me
If I can’t be a star I won’t get out of bed.

Waking up and getting up has never been easy,
Oh, oh, I think you should know.
Waking up and getting up has never been easy,
Oh, oh, I think you should know.
Oh, oh, I think you should go.
Make a cup of tea, and put a record on.

Waking up and getting up has never been easy,
Oh, oh, I think you should know.
Waking up and getting up has never been easy,
Oh, oh, I think you should know.
Oh, oh, I think you should go.
Make a cup of tea, and put a record on.
