“Sunday morning, woke up yawning
filled the pool for a swim
pulled down the head
and looked in the glass
just to see if I was in
went up the stairs and kissed my woman
to make her come alive
‘cause with fifteen kids
and a family on the skids
I got to go for a Sunday drive
fifteen kids and a family on the skids
I got to go for a Sunday drive.

That’s how they are
so I grabbed out the car
convertible fifty-nine
headed to the freeway
tried to find the Pasadena sign
ten miles and three quarters
I wasn’t feeling any more alive
‘cause with fifteen kids
and a family on the skids
I got to go for a Sunday drive
fifteen kids and a family on the skids
I got to go for a Sunday drive.

I used to be a minstrel free
with a whole lot of bread in my bag
I used to feel that my life was real
but the good Lord threw me a snag
now I’m gonna be the same as me
no matter how I try
‘cause with fifteen kids
and a family on the skids
I got to go for a Sunday drive
fifteen kids and a family on the skids
I got to go for a Sunday drive.

Turned ‘round the car and headed for home
I guess I realized my fate
ten miles and three quarters more
I pulled up outside the gate
twenty more kids were stood inside
and that made thirty-five
‘cause with an orphanage full of thirty-five kids
I got to go for a Sunday drive
an orphanage full of thirty-five kids
I got to go for a Sunday drive.

Sunday morning woke up yawning
filled the pool for a swim
pulled down the glass
and looked in the mirror
just to see if I was in
went up the stairs and kissed my woman
to make her come alive
‘cause with an orphanage full of thirty-five kids
I got to go for a Sunday drive
an orphanage full of thirty-five kids
I got to go for a Sunday drive”.
