A Fine, Fine Day Lyrics
When my Uncle Sonny blew back into town
I'd just go for a ride and have a look around
Took off his fedora
Stuck his fingers in the crown
And he pulled out twenty dollars
And he laid that money down
And he called out to a taxi cab "take me down to Central Park
and keep that meter runnin' to the twenty dollar mark"
And he kept his eyes turned forward
And he sat up straight and tall
And no one even noticed him
No one cared at all

Chorus:
It's a fine fine day for a reunion
It's a fine fine day for comin' home
You did your sittin' you did hard time
But you ain't gonna sit no more
They can't keep you there no more
It's a fine fine day
And nothin's gonna take you,
Nothin's take you away
It's a fine fine day
Oh, yeh

The last time I saw Sonny I was just about this tall
And he always made my momma kinda crazy when he called
And him and my old man would stand and whisper in the hall
Then they'd disappear and maybe not come home at all
Then one day, Sonny stopped comin' around
Heard he got himself into a little trouble
out in town
Sometime after that he finally disappeared for good
But he pulled that old Houdini like we always knew he would

It's a fine fine day for a reunion
It's a fine fine day for comin' home
You did your sittin' you did hard time
But cha ain't gonna sit no more
They can't keep you there no more
It's a fine fine day, oh yeh
And nothin's gonna drag you
Nothin's gonna drag you away, oh yeh
It's a fine fine day, fine day
(back up singers:
"oooooo a fine fine day, fine day
oooooo a fine fine day, fine day")

I see you made it back alright, alright-aca
