Lyrics

Dreaming of Sunday

Written By: Robin Willis


Its 8:30AM and something ain't right
Its 8:30AM and something ain't right
Well it sure ain't Sunday
But it felt like Saturday last night

I rush out the front door, late for work again
Oh, I rush out the front door, late for work again
Well I should'a known better
Should've been in bed by ten

Where are you Sunday? You left so soon.
Ooh where are you Sunday? You left so soon
Well I sure miss you Sunday
Im dreaming of you

Pour another cup of coffee, sit down at my desk
Ooh, pour another cup of coffee, sit down at my desk.
Well. Im pushing papers all day
And this is Monday at its best

Where are you Sunday? You left so soon.
Ooh where are you Sunday? You left so soon
Well I sure miss you Sunday
Im dreaming of you.

iPads, iPhones and all that stuff
Last week's model ain't up to snuff
Technology, Technology
Technology, moving faster than the eye can see.

HD, 3D, and blue ray discs
Keep up with the trends for your Christmas list
Technology, Technology
Technology, moving faster than the eye can see.

It started with the wheel a long time ago
Make it bigger, better, faster, make it fly, make it roll
Technology, Technology
Technology, moving faster than the eye can see

It started with the wheel a long time ago
Make it bigger, better, faster, make it fly, make it roll
Technology, Technology
Technology, moving faster than the eye can see

Technology, Oh Technology
Technology, Ooh Technology
Technology, moving faster than the eye can see.
