Levellers: Beautiful Day

BEAUTIFUL DAY
/Levellers/

[Chorus:]
What a beautiful day, hey, hey
I'm the king of all time
And nothing is impossible
In my all powerful mind

Was on the fifth of November
When time went back
Some say that that's impossible
But you and I we never look back
And wasn't it incredible
So beautiful and above all
Just to see the fuse get lit this time
To light a real bonfire for all time

[Chorus]

I was drinking in my nightclub
It felt good to be back
When Hepburn said: 'I love you'
And Flynn said: 'Make mine a double jack'
Was then we planned the revolution
To make things better for all time
When Guevara said: 'That's crazy'
And ordered up a bottle of wine

[Chorus] [2x]

In there on the big screen
Every night I've seen
The way all things could be
For me, for me, for me, for me ...

The news broke after midnight
That we'd pulled the temples down without a sound
But the generals they were hiding
And the ministers, well
They'd all gone to ground
Wealth re-distribution
Became the new solution
So I got a paper bag
But you got the one with all the holes

[Chorus]

What a beautiful day
(What a beautiful day)
I'm the king of all time
(It's a beautiful day)
And nothing is impossible
(It's a beautiful)
In my all powerful mind
(It's a beautiful day)
Oh yeah, nothing is impossible
(It's a beautiful)
In my all powerful mind
(It's a beautiful day)
That's because
Nothing is impossible
In my all powerful mind
