A cover of the final track on Squeeze's 1985 album Così Fan Tutti Frutti.


When daylight appears
Through a crack in the curtain
I'm laying in bed
Staring up at the skirting
I'm alone in my room
But someone is turning the key in the door
And I wake up to find
It's still daylight outside
There's a taste in my mouth
Like the thoughts in my mind
And I wake up to find
That I left on the light the world can take a jump
I'm feeling like a lump when daylight appears
Through a crack in my mind
I won't ever go drinking again
When daylight appears
It's the third time around
And I swear I won't drink
Ever again with that crowd
What on earth did I say
Did I let the side down I've been guilty before
And I wake up to see
The old wonderful me
All naked and wrinkled
From knots in the sheets
And I get up to see
My hair like a tree
The world can shut the door
Because I'm feeling so sore when daylight appears with my eyes full of sleep
I won't ever go drinking again
Aaaaah how my head's like an anvil
Aaaaah go the sparks as I angle
Aaaaah goes the spray from the shower
How could I smell like a flower
When I feel like weed in the rain
I won't ever go drinking again
