LYRICS

When I get home
It’s late at night
I’m black and bloody
From my life
I haven’t time to clean my hands
Cuts will only sting me
Through my dreams

It’s well past midnight
As I lie
In a semi-conscious state
I dream of people fighting me
Without any reason I can see

In the morning I awake
My arms, my legs, my body aches
The sky outside is wet and grey
So begins another weary day
So (so) begins another weary day

After eating I go out
People passing by me shout
I can’t stand this agony
Why don’t they talk to me?

In the park I have to rest
I lie down and I do my best
The rain is falling on my face
I wish I could sink without a trace

In the morning I awake
My arms, my legs, my body aches
The sky outside is wet and grey
So begins another weary day
So (so) begins another weary day

In the park I have to rest
I lie down and I do my best
The rain is falling on my face
I wish I could sink without a trace

In the morning I awake
My arms, my legs, my body aches
The sky outside is wet and grey
So begins another weary day
So (so) begins another weary day

So begins another weary day
So (so) begins another weary day

OVERVIEW

Mike wrote “the song “Grey Day” before the band became a success in the UK music scene. The first performance came back in 1978 at Acklam Hall, when the band was known as “The North London Invaders.” Madness recorded the track and became the first single released from the band’s third studio album, Madness¬†7. It was a big departure from their early ska sound, with a much darker, miserable feel. The song title does not appear in the lyrics as a single phrase, though a couplet rhyming “grey” with “day” features in the chorus.
