Misfits

Ray Davies, released on Misfits, © Davray Music Ltd. 1978

.

You've been sleeping in a field but you look real rested

You set out to outrage but you can't get arrested

You say your image is new, but it looks well tested

You're lost without a crowd yet you go your own way

.

You say your summer has gone

Now the Winter is crawlin' in

They say that even in your day

Somehow you never could quite fit in

Though it's cold outside

I know the Summer's gonna shine again

Because you know what they say

Every dog has his day

.

You're a misfit, afraid of yourself, so you run away and hide

You've been a misfit all your life

Why don't you join the crowd

And come inside

You wander 'round this town like you've lost your way

You had your chance in your day

Yet you threw it all away

But you know what they say

Every dog has his day

.

Look at all the losers and the mad eyed gazers

Look at all the looneys and the sad eyed failures

They're giving up living 'cos they just don't care

So take a good look around

The misfits are everywhere

.

You're a misfit

Afraid of yourself so you run away and hide

You've been a misfit all your life

But why don't you join the crowd and come inside

You wander round this town

Like you've lost your way

You had your chance in your day

Yet you threw it all away

Now you're lost in the crowd

Yet, still go your own way

.

This is your chance, this is your time

So don't throw it away

You can have your day

Yes it's true what they say

Every dog has his day

.
