Lyrics

Trudging slowly over wet sand
Back to the bench where your clothes were stolen
This is the coastal town
That they forgot to close down
Armageddon - come Armageddon
Come Armageddon - come

Everyday is like Sunday
Everyday is silent and grey

Hide on the promenade
Etch a postcard
"How I Dearly Wish I Was Not Here"
In the seaside town
That they forgot to bomb
Come, come, come Nuclear bomb!

Everyday is like Sunday
Everyday is silent and grey

Trudging back over pebbles and sand
And a strange dust lands on your hands
(And on your face)
(On your face, on your face, on your face)

Everyday is like Sunday
"Win yourself a cheap tray"
Share some grease-tea with me
Everyday is silent and grey

"Everyday Is Like Sunday" is the third track of Morrissey's debut solo album, Viva Hate, and the second single to be released by the artist. Co-written by Morrissey and former Smiths producer Stephen Street, the song was Morrissey's second release after the Smiths break-up. Morrissey was inspired lyrically by the Mid-Wales coastal town of Borth and Nevil Shute's On the Beach to lament the drudgery of a seaside town. Street, who had originally sought to contribute his musical ideas to Morrissey to use for Smiths B-sides, also contributed bass guitar, which he contends was inspired by Echo & the Bunnymen. "Everyday Is Like Sunday" was featured on Morrissey's debut album, Viva Hate, and the compilation album Bona Drag. Upon release, the single, featuring the B-sides "Disappointed", "Will Never Marry", and "Sister I'm a Poet", saw commercial and critical success, reaching number nine in the UK and garnering rave reviews for its evocative lyrics and bombastic music. Encouraged by the success of the single, Morrissey would continue working with Street for subsequent singles and the rest of Viva Hate. Since its release, "Everyday Is Like Sunday" has become one of Morrissey's most successful songs and remains critically acclaimed by modern writers. it has also inspired the cult Canadian film Everyday Is Like Sunday.
