Sweet - 4th Of July Lyrics




The floor got up and hit my face
I couldn't make it to the door
I took a sip and drained the tap
And life became a finger snap
Aha

I couldn't understand it
My days were in a daze
Is it bloody Sunday
I'd better say my prayers
Oh yeah, oh yeah

And when the stars came down
I was higher than the 4th of July
Blitzin' right across the sky
High, high, higher

"Believe the lies" I told myself
I wasn't into self denial
No way
I held my breath I count to ten
So turn around round round
And do it again

I couldn't understand it
My life was all a blaze
Is it bloody Sunday
My days were in a daze

When the stars came down
I was higher than the 4th of July
Blitzin' right across the sky
High, high, higher

And when the stars fell down
You know I' m gonna burn up the town
It's the 4th of July
And I was getting so high

When the stars came down
I was higher than the 4th of July
Pitchin' right across the sky
High, high, higher

Sweet 4th Of July Comments
  1. Robert Whitlow

    We called this power pop growing up. We were endlessly entertained playing with the album cover, making it 'give us a wink'.

  2. phil de Blois

    yum yum music

  3. Haley Watterson

    Why are there no bands that harmonize like this anymore? This is amazing!

    The fool got up and hit my face
    I couldn't make it to the door
    I took a sip and drained the tap
    And life became a thing to stab
    Aha
    I couldn't understand it
    My days were in a daze
    Is it bloody Sunday
    I'd better save my prayers
    Oh yeah, oh yeah
    And when the stars came down
    I was higher than the 4th of July
    Whizzing right across the sky
    High, high, higher
    Believe the lies I told myself
    I wasn't into something I own
    No way
    I held my breath I count to ten
    So turn around round round
    And do it again
    I couldn't understand it
    My life was all a blaze
    Is it bloody Sunday
    My days were in a daze
    When the stars came down
    I was higher than the 4th of July
    Whizzing right across the sky
    High, high, higher
    And when the stars fell down
    You know I' m gonna burn up the town
    It's the 4th of July
    And I was getting so high
    When the stars came down
    I was higher than the 4th of July
    Whizzing right across the sky
    High, high, higher

  8. Michael Mancusi

    Sweet I'm impressed with these guy's

  9. Andreas Uhlbrandt

    Their next single after Lies In Your Eyes, but it was only released in Australia as a single, maybe it would have been done in all over, cos it is amazing good and sound even today so fresh and new.
    4th OF July is a real gem on the album Give Us A Wink (1976). Their hardest rock album ever.

  10. Anja Schmied

    brilliant song / brilliant album !!!!
