Reed, Lou - Perfect Day Lyrics




Just a perfect day
Drink sangria in the park
And then later, when it gets dark
We go home

Just a perfect day
Feed animals in the zoo
Then later a movie, too
And then home

Oh, it's such a perfect day
I'm glad I spent it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

Just a perfect day
Problems all left alone
Weekenders on our own
It's such fun

Just a perfect day
You made me forget myself
I thought I was someone else
Someone good

Oh, it's such a perfect day
I'm glad I spent it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow

    this song has been my favourite lately

  6. beans

    This is like the shit that the Beetles are SUPPOSED to make/sound like, except they didn't.
    I always thought the Beetles were overrated, and trash.
    Beetles are overrated.

    Not that this is so great, but if it sounded like this, I wouldn't say anything.

  7. Ryan Sean

    Renton has Od and Mother superior has placed him in a cab. That is all I see when I hear this song. 💉 ✌

  8. Ameer Mohamed

    I remember this as the song played in the breaking bad heroin scene, but when I googled it, I found it was another song

  9. Pascale g

Porque se lo dijo Vicki, el hace lo que le dicen, y NOEMI también le dijo, que no hacía falta bailar, que había CANTANTES QUE NO BAILAN { NOEMI HAY VIDEOS QUE LO DIJISTE) por si lo leee, jijij😁 y me quedo con lo que le dijo NINA, 《 Que ella sabe de música mucho,》, que se queda EMBOBADA, como me pasa a mi, cuando está en el ESCENARIO, , y en la gala 4, se va soltando, al momento, ya lo hace , moviéndose, SR, MANU, yo no quitaba los ojos de mi FLAVIO, Porque es un ARTISTAZOOO❤💜💙

  40. Don Glover

    Hey, sorry to be optimistic but back in the 70's I spent a long summers day doing what two young lovers are supposed to and and later whn we got home I played this album and this song just struck a chord. I was glad I spent it with her... If you put some positive effort into things you may just
    reap what you sow....40 years later we are still happly married.. sory to be boring..

    Tutto Salvé

    No worries that’s lovely mate

    Yelyzaveta Krytska

    really happy to read something optimistic... even though you have troubles, it's life indispensable to be optimistic. even if you have mental issues, you should see the bright sides of life (they exist). a talk about fake sadness, depression, anxiety or whatever - is the worst thing I could ever hear

    Michael Wormald

    No worries mate- we have listened to this for years- we have been married for 53 years so it must be good.

    jaso

    I'm very happy for you my dude

  41. Pol Slobodyan

    👍😍🔥💓

  42. James W

    This song fitted so well in the trainspotting film

  43. Daniela Ruiz

    Just a Perfect Day 💖

  45. James Hannigan

    A perfect day is about heroin if anyone maybe is wondering.

    You made me forget myself!!

    You just keep me hanging on..
    You reep what you sow!!

    As a recovering addict it sure hits home this song..

    Don't ever do it anyone of you are thinking about it..trust me brothers and sisters..

    Peace and blessings to you all out there x

    Helit Broza

    Thanks, I think you just t stopped me from going there

    James Hannigan

    @Helit Broza
    Hello there my brother/sister..
    Forgive me I am not familiar with your name and not sure if it is a male or female name...however regardless of your name you are still a fellow human who is/was reaching out to me....

    If you ever want to speak on an email or what ever it takes to help you I will talk to you to help you to see the unglorified side of the heroin...
    I have been an addict for nearly 40 years and I do not know how I have done it but I have managed to come out the other side of the ravages it puts upon your body....
    If you want to feel ill like you have never felt everyday for the rest of your life until you die then DO NOT GO NEAR HEROIN!! Please I urge you not to make this desicion the worst one if your entire life then please dont even do it once....
    Because heroin is the most powerful and addictive drug that causes nothing but misery to you and your family and friends and you will never find or get yourself a good woman...you will lose your wife and children for ever if you do this and it will even take your dignity.....
    So I sincerely urge you to not do this my friend....
    I would not wish this life on my worst enemy as it is just hell on earth and I've lost everything because of it....
    You are left alone and lonely.....aye I mean lonely like you have never felt in your entire life....
    Your own family will turn there backs on you....
    If you want a private chat or even here so I can try to dissuade you then please please please listen to what I have to say....
    I should not even be alive and well by all rights but I believe God has a plan for me and I am living now and there is no feeling like feeling alive and embracing the pain of life as well as the good happy times of life....it's all a test and only you have the answers and the desicion to make good choices in life...
    Life sucks sometimes but if you a young then you can do anything in life...
    Start off by saving money however small and and then start a small business and build it up and keep saving and making money till you can get from wherever it is you are now to a place you are happy...

    God bless you and I sincerely hope you don't make the worst choice of your life....
    If I have gotten through to you then that gives me so much satisfaction knowing I have helped someone from a life if shear hell....

    Peace X

    Trainspotting!!

  70. Ján Olas

    probably one of the best song ever recorded

  71. rod dog

    Today was not a perfect day!

  72. Мия Сат

    I was a little shocked when my father told me that this song is all about narco trip and how everything is perfect after that 😐

    Stefan Sieber

    In an interview in 2000, Reed says that, "No. You're talking to the writer, the person who wrote it. No that's not true [that the song is about heroin use]. I don't object to that, particularly...whatever you think is perfect. But this guy's vision of a perfect day was the girl, sangria in the park, and then you go home; a perfect day, real simple. I meant just what I said."

  73. Valerio Lento

    Ai nostri giorni, indimenticabili e perfetti. Sei il pensiero che resta nella mente, alla fine di ogni cosa.

  85. Sickle Cell Anemia

    I dedicated this song to a bird I fancied, & she erroneously took it as an insult. She then informed me that she's "NOT trans." I was crestfallen, after she thought of my affection as knavery.

  86. 개비정한세상

    Just a perfect day
    Drink Sangria in the park
    And then later
    When it gets dark, we go home
    Just a perfect day
    Feed animals in the zoo
    Then later
    A movie, too, and then home
    Oh, it's such a perfect day
    I'm glad I spent it with you
    Oh, such a perfect day
    You just keep me hanging on
    You just keep me hanging on
    Just a perfect day
    Problems all left alone
    Weekenders on our own
    It's such fun
    Just a perfect day
    You made me forget myself
    I thought I was
    Someone else, someone good
    Oh, it's such a perfect day
    I'm glad I spent it with you
    Oh, such a perfect day
    You just keep me hanging on
    You just keep me hanging on
    You're going to reap just what you sow
    You're going to reap just what you sow
    You're going to reap just what you sow
    You're going to reap just what you sow

  89. linda from ga

    Just a perfect day, when you dragged me down a gravel road by my hair , kicked me in my stomach , threw away my phone, cut the Internet computer lines, called me a bitch and told me you were glad my brother died of cancer! You're in hell now! It was a perfect day when you dropped dead in our yard! You reaped just what you sowed

    Stephen Gill

    Wow! you could make that into either a Blues song or maybe Country & Western song....
    My man dragged me down the gravel road,
    By the hair on my head,
    Screamed, "you are a bitch and I'm glad your bother is dead!",
    He kicked me in my guts, Then he went all nuts,
    He threw away my phone and cut the internet wires to my home,
    You are dead now, you are dead now,
    Burn in Hell, Burn in Hell,
    You dropped down dead in our yard,
    when I shot you with the 45,
    Reap what you sow!
    Reap what you sow!

  90. Manuela Schulte

    I hear this song everyday. I don't no why. Maybe I'm waiting for a perfect day... Maybe I wait in vain. Who knows...
