ROUTINE
Written by DOUGLAS & TUCKER / Copyright 1997 YUMMY POP TUNES (ASCAP)


I GET UP IN THE MORNING IN THE USUAL WAY
A SHOWER AND SOME COFFEE BREWS A START TO MY DAY
THE PAPER PAINTS A PICTURE OF THE WORLDGAME IN PLAY
I'M A SLAVE TO REPETITION AND MY HAIR'S TURNING GRAY

IT'S THE SAME FAMILIAR SCENE
JUST ANOTHER DAY'S ROUTINE
DAY IN DAY OUT
NOTHING NEW TO CHANGE MY SCHEME
DAY IN DAY OUT
IT'S JUST ANOTHER DAY'S ROUTINE
DAY IN DAY OUT

I'M WORKING IN THE OFFICE AS THE AFTERNOON COMES
THE BOSS HAS LEFT A STACK OF FILES THAT LOOK
CUMBERSOME
I'M COUNTING DOWN A LIFETIME TILL THE PRESSURE IS DONE
I'M A RUNNER IN A RACE THAT SEEMS WILL NEVER BE WON

IT'S THE SAME FAMILIAR SCENE
JUST THE AFTERNOON ROUTINE

DAY IN DAY OUT
NOTHING NEW TO CHANGE MY THEME
DAY IN DAY OUT
TRAPPED INSIDE MY OLD ROUTINE
DAY IN DAY OUT

I GO HOME IN THE EVENING ON THE USUAL PATH
I'VE DRUNK MYSELF TO RUIN AND I'M FIT FOR A BATH
I HIT THE PILLOW DREAMING BUT THE DREAM NEVER LASTS
IT'S GETTING SO THE FUTURE MIGHT AS WELL BE THE PAST

IT'S THE SAME FAMILIAR SCENE
JUST ANOTHER NIGHT'S ROUTINE

DAY IN DAY OUT
NOTHING NEW TO CHANGE MY SCHEME
DAY IN DAY OUT
IT'S JUST ANOTHER NIGHT'S ROUTINE
DAY IN DAY OUT

DAY IN DAY OUT
