The Kinks

The Kinks were an English rock band formed in Muswell Hill, North London, by brothers Ray and Dave Davies in 1964. Categorised in the United States as a British Invasion band, the Kinks are recognised as one of the most important and influential rock groups of the era. Their music was influenced by a wide range of genres, including rhythm and blues, British music hall, folk and country.

Original members Pete Quaife (bass guitar, vocals) and Mick Avory (drums and percussion) were replaced by John Dalton in 1969 and Bob Henrit in 1984, respectively.

Daylight over the Village Green early in the morning. 
Daylight over the hills and valleys heralding the morning. 
Daylight over the mountains, daylight on the Village Green, 
Daylight over the field and the factories. 
Another night has gone away and here comes yet another day. 

See the early morning risers walking round with bleary eyes. 
Worn out housewives grit their teeth ignoring new born babies' cries. 
Look at all the busy people this way, that way, everywhere 
Biting toast and swallowing tea and breakfast specials on the air. 
Feel that daylight. 

Feel the sunlight on my pillow and it stops my yawing. 
I thank God that I'm still around to see another dawn in. 
Daylight over the valleys, daylight lighting up the trees, 
Daylight over the hillside, 
Smile a smile and sing a song, another night has been and gone. 

Middle-aged bankers crack their backs and wish they were young and in their teens, 
Lonely spinsters dream of dating Roger Moore or Steve McQueen. 
Health fanatics in their attics training for the Empire Games, 
School boys dream of Captain Scarlet, battle ships and aeroplanes. 

Feel that daylight, Daylight. 
Daylight on the Village Green, 
Daylight, 
Field and the valleys, 
Daylight.
