Lyrics - Beautiful Day


Could it be the joke's on us

75 degrees and it's just the end of winter

She says we've got all we need

To go outside and sit right down and paint a picture

One more day to be alive

One more good day to survive

One good day put your glasses on

Protect yourself from the midday sun

It's one more beautiful day

And it's one more beautiful day to survive

Don't forget to put your screen on

No I don't care if I burn to the ground today

I'm sick and tired of shades of grey and brown

Gonna put this brim hat on

Just to be cool

Not as a rule as a hoot

Cause you're born naked

And you go out with a suit and if you're lucky


I see people in the streets and they're all smiling

Underneath the ozone skies

We've got one more mountain to climb

One more river to cross

I can't seem to find myself by

Yes, I'm going outside

Let's take a, lets take a ride

No one's gonna break my stride

Or bruise my pride

Or bring me down today

Sick and tired of shades of white and grey

She says we've got all we need

Gonna sit right down over there and paint a picture

You're born naked

And you go out with a suit and if your lucky


Love you to put your brim hat on casey

--Nick Lloyd (1953-1996 "You're born naked and you go out with a suit... if you're lucky"--
