Lyrics to song The Daily Planet by Love
In the morning we arise, and
Start the day the same old way.
As yesterday, the day before,
And all in all it's just a day
Like All the rest.
So do your best with chewing gum.
And it is, oh, so repetitious,
Waiting on the sun.
Down on Go-Stop Boulevard,
It never fails to bring me down.
The sirens and the accidents,
And for a laugh there's Plastic Nancy.
She's real fancy.
With her children, they'll go far,
She buys them toys to keep in practice
Waiting on the war.
I feel shivers in my spine.
When the iceman,
Yes, his ice is melting,
Won't be there on time.
Hope he finds a rhyme,
For his little mind.
Short instrumental break.
I can see you With no (hands)/(face)4.
Eyes I need you, you're my (heart)/(face).
Look, we're going 'round and 'round.
Instrumental to end.

3__Transcribed from the track on this album.
4__The overall theme of "The Daily Planet," is about the tedium and
repetition of everyday life. However, by the second verse, Lee's lyrics take
on the quality of a labyrinthe, with subject, object and point of view
shifting randomly over the course of a line. By the end of the song, things
are so confusing that the band's backing vocals chant the word "face" when
Lee sings the words "hand" and "heart." As a matter of fact, the combination
of groovy, Beatlesque melody and surreal, inscrutable lyrics became a genre
