F#       B
Thinking back now
A
Lazing on hazy days although in many ways
F#          B
It's always a task
A
What we used to see on the TV on Saturdays
F#       B    A
Seems so far away

I think to myself, now's the time to self indulge
F#         B     A
And on the other side

Is a program about someone who died

F#       E             C          D              
I get so tired, dinner time is at home (not here)

VERSE 2:

F#          B
A change of scene
  A
I know, oh happy days, meeting people on the way
F#         B  A
And on the TV screen

Oh dear, what's the time? You used to be a friend of mine
F#           B
It's time to go now
A
La la laa, la la laa, la la laa, la la laa,
F#          B
I'm turning round now
A
La la laa, la la laa, la la laa, la la laa,

F#               E      C         D          F#  E  C  D
What's happening now, I never see eye to eye
F#  E     C             D          F#  E  C  D
All ideas blown up high in the sky

CHORUS:
G      C           A        D
I'm so sorry which I cannot show
      E         Bb            Am                F
But I can't say anymore, I've got to go home to my own world
