Every day she takes a morning bath she wets her hair
Wraps a towel around her as she’s heading for the bedroom chair
It’s just another day
Slipping into stockings, stepping into shoes
Dipping in the pocket of her raincoat
It’s just another day
At the office where the papers grow she takes a break
Drinks another coffee and she finds it hard to stay awake
It’s just another day
Do do do do do do, it’s just another day
Do do do do do do, it’s just another day
So sad, so sad
Sometimes she feels so sad
Alone in her apartment she’d dwell
Till the man of her dreams comes to break the spell
Ah, stay, don’t stand her up
And he comes and he stays but he leaves the next day
So sad
Sometimes she feels so sad
As she posts another letter to the sound of five
People gather ’round her and she finds it hard to stay alive
It’s just another day
Do do do do do do, it’s just another day
Do do do do do do, it’s just another day
So sad, so sad
Sometimes she feels so sad
Alone in her apartment she’d dwell
Till the man of her dreams come to break the spell
Ah, stay, don’t stand her up
And he comes and he stays but he leaves the next day
So sad
Sometimes she feels so sad
Every day she takes a morning bath she wets her hair
Wraps a towel around her as she’s heading for the bedroom chair
It’s just another day
Slipping into stockings, stepping into shoes
Dipping in the pocket of her raincoat
It’s just another day
Do do do do do do, it’s just another day
Do do do do do do, it’s just another day

benedvesíti a haját
maga köré teker egy törülközőt
vmi felé halad
belebújik a harisnyába
belelép a cipőbe
belenyúl a zsebbe
szünetet tart
nehéznek talál vmit tenni
ébren marad

lakik
álmai férfija
megtöri az átkot
átver vkit
vki köré gyűlik
Some interesting grammar and vocab issues:
What does it mean? : ‘posts another letter to the sound of five’
“The Sound Of Five” was a British radio Show in the 1960’s that dealt with people’s problems. People would write letters to the radio company with their problems and the “experts” would discuss them on air.
