Lyrics
It’s the days of lock-and-load honesty
The days of sunny-side lies
The days of using all the water
And other environmental crimes

It’s the days of doing the laundry
It’s the days of folding the sheets
It’s the days of tinfoil crop circles
And riots in the streets

It’s the days of Internet chat rooms
The days of mud-caked feet
It’s the days of wonder and glory
It’s the days before the hipster retreat

Chorus
It’s the days of Clementine
It’s the days of Clementine

It’s the days where sabers rattle
Where planes just disappear
It’s the days of ferries sinking
It’s the days of grief and tears

It’s the days walking on the boardwalk
It’s the days of summertime heat
It’s an age of gutless wonders
It’s the days of indiscreet

Chorus
It’s the days of Clementine
It’s the days of Clementine

It’s the hours of seeking pleasure
It’s the days of praying for rain
It’s the days of sleeping together
It’s the nights fighting again

It’s the days of a runaway atmosphere
It’s the days of beer and wine
It’s the days of adopting a baby
It’s the days of standing in line

Chorus
It’s the days of Clementine
It’s the days of Clementine

It’s the days of voyeur friendship
It’s the days of ironing for work
It’s the days of sitting in traffic
It’s the days of driving like a jerk

It’s the days of hearing the angels sing
It’s the days of running to ground
It’s the days we get together
When no one comes around

Chorus
It’s the days of Clementine
It’s the days of Clementine
It’s the days of Clementine
It’s the days of Clementine
