Kinks, The - Predictable Lyrics




Don't know why I'm even bothering.
(Predictable)
Yeah, that's the mood I'm in.
Go out for a walk then I come back in.
(Predictable)
Yeah, the mood that I'm in.
(Predictable)
Every day of my life
Can't even communicate with my wife
(Predictable)
That's the word of the year
(Predictable)
All I see, all I hear.

Go to my office, sit at my desk,
Predictably just like all of the rest.
I sit and I dream about far away places,
Away from the people with frowns on their faces.
All of my life is monotony
I'd go out for a walk but I know it would be
(Predictable)
Sure as the nose on my face
(Predictable)
Same for the whole human race

Once we (once we) had so many options
Once we (once we) had dignity and grace
Now we (now we) have got nothing but our own time to waste.

(Predictable)
Yeah, that's the word of the year
(Predictable)
All I see, all I hear
Why can't it be like never before?
(Predictable)
Yeah, ain't life a bore
(Predictable)
Life gets more and more...
Just like I've heard it all somewhere before.
(Predictable)
Sure as the nose on my face
(Predictable)
Same for the whole human race

One day (one day) it's gonna get better some way (some way)
I wish it would get worse any way (any way)
What can I lose, it might turn into something better.

It gets harder and harder the harder I try
(Predictable)
Feels like a good time to die
I kiss you hello then I kiss you good-bye
(Predictable)
Just like the stain on my tie
(Predictable)
Just like the jacket I wear
(Predictable)
The way that I'm combing my hair
Turn on the TV, just sit and stare
(Predictable)
There's nothing happening there

Yeah, that's the word of the year
(Predictable)
All I see, all I hear.

  5. Michael G. Partridge

    Priceless at volume. It’s warranted.

  6. iganzabissassa

    Is this the theme song of every shitty Brendan O'neill column ever written?

  7. Joe Santos

    at 2:38 Ray's watching a Stray Cats video, brilliant !

  8. Gloria Grace

    I feel these lyrics so much it aches...

  9. van wray

    @2:38, Brian Setzer on the television. @2:54 Paul Weller on the televsion.

  10. John Drake

    Featuring Paul Weller....and not necessarily in a complimentary manner.

  11. Norton Records

    1:11 eating cig butts = priceless

  12. Baltimore Art Party

    My god, this song could have been written for 2018. The Kinks are visionaries and that is why they rule!

    Fintan

    Yup they were really big influence to the alternative/indie rock of later generations. It's weird they don't get more play on classic rock radio stations. I could listen to apeman daily and not grow tired.

    NPC SJW

    Long live the kinks!

    Bonnie Bickett

    I love their lyrics!
