3. Funny Day Saturday

(Greg Bond)
September 20, 1999
Round, round, and my thoughts come round
To the Chinook winds a-blowin'
Down, down, through a hush of sound
A seagull's a-goin' to land.
And I'm lying upended, looking up at the sky
And the wind's blowing white clouds away.
It's a day for kite flying, it's a day for a day
A funny day, funny day, Saturday.

Soft, soft, the warm wind is soft
And it sets me to grinnin'
Aloft, aloft, the seagull aloft
It's wheeling and spinning away.
And the whole country's singin'
With the sound of the wind
And it's good that I'm feeling this way
It's a day just for dreaming, it's a day for a day
A funny day, funny day, Saturday.

Come walk a country road, come walk with me
There's no time for lazing.
For the wheat fields are waving, they're calling to me
And I'll not keep a sunny day waiting.
Just be glad it's today, 'cause tomorrow's always rain
Just let the wind blow you away.
And you'll see why I'm saying the world should be gay
On a funny day, funny day, Saturday.
