Sunshine State - Day Job


最近有個很夯的機車廣告,相信大家應該都有看過了,這個廣告不只紅了最後那六隻小豬,連帶的,也讓台灣這個島上的人聽見了來自加拿大的樂團—Sunshine State—的歌。

這個廣告的主題曲叫「Day Job」,從字面上看的意思就是「每天例行的工作」,主唱Aleza以這首歌唱出了上班族的心聲,所以這首歌在加拿大被封為「上班族國歌」。


Day Job
by A. Coldevin/J. Bryan McCollum

Verse 1

Where did the weekend go
I say to Steve
As the elevator opens
On the 7th floor of hell

Third cup of coffee
Now I’m half awake
Start to wander through my email
Getting cozy in my cell

Pre chorus 1

1-2-3-4-5 more hours
crush my soul
and send me flowers
take me home
where I can be myself again

Chorus 1

Someday
Monday I’ll sleep in ‘till noon
And stay out late
And live the life I want
I know
One day
I’ll leave this dull grey cubicle behind
If the rent could still be paid

Verse 2

Try to be different
Wore striped socks today
I think that everybody noticed
Heard them talking in the hall

Hey you know there’s muffins
On Todd’s desk
Well I better hurry now and get one
Guess I’ll have to miss that call

Pre chorus 2

1-2-3-4-5 more hours
sing my love songs in the shower
brush my teeth
and try to plan my
getaway!

Chorus 2

Someday
Monday I’ll sleep in ‘till noon
And stay out late
And live the life I want
I know
One day
I’ll leave this dull grey cubicle behind
If the rent could still be paid

Bridge

The dental plan
Serves me well
Love my ergonomic chair
Steady pay
That I never seem to save
I’ve been wasting too much time
I don’t wanna be there

Chorus 3

Someday
Monday I’ll sleep in ‘till noon
And stay out late
And live the life I want
I know
One day
I’ll leave this dull grey cubicle behind
Things are gonna be different

Someday
Monday I’ll sleep in ‘till noon
And stay out late
And live the life I want
I know
One day
I’ll kiss this dull grey cubicle goodbye
If the rent could still be paid

我上網找了一下,發現只有INDIEVOX有賣數位專輯,其他的通路好像都買不到這張專輯,如果有人知道台灣哪邊可以買到此張專輯的話,麻煩通知一下,另外,覺得這首歌好聽的話,記得去miroko上逛逛 (笑)
