Predictable

Ray Davies, released on Give the People What They Want, © Davray Music Ltd. 1981

.

Don't know why I'm even bothering.

(Predictable)

Yeah, that's the mood I'm in.

Go out for a walk then I come back in.

(Predictable)

Yeah, the mood that I'm in.

(Predictable)

Every day of my life

Can't even communicate with my wife

(Predictable)

That's the word of the year

(Predictable)

All I see, all I hear.

.

Go to my office, sit at my desk,

Predictably just like all of the rest.

I sit and I dream about far away places,

Away from the people with frowns on their faces.

All of my life is monotony

I'd go out for a walk but I know it would be

(Predictable)

Sure as the nose on my face

(Predictable)

Same for the whole human race

.

Once we (once we) had so many options

Once we (once we) had dignity and grace

Now we (now we) have got nothing but our own time to waste.

.

(Predictable)

Yeah, that's the word of the year

(Predictable)

All I see, all I hear

Why can't it be like never before?

(Predictable)

Yeah, ain't life a bore

(Predictable)

Life gets more and more...

Just like I've heard it all somewhere before.

(Predictable)

Sure as the nose on my face

(Predictable)

Same for the whole human race

.

One day (one day) it's gonna get better some way (some way)

I wish it would get worse any way (any way)

What can I lose, it might turn into something better.

.

It gets harder and harder the harder I try

(Predictable)

Feels like a good time to die

I kiss you hello then I kiss you good-bye

(Predictable)

Just like the stain on my tie

(Predictable)

Just like the jacket I wear

(Predictable)

The way that I'm combing my hair

Turn on the TV, just sit and stare

(Predictable)

There's nothing happening there

.

Yeah, that's the word of the year

(Predictable)

All I see, all I hear.
