    He gets up every morning.
    Without warning, the bedside clock rings the alarm.
    So he gets dressed—
    he does his best to be on time.
    He combs his hair, goes down the stairs,
    and makes some breakfast.
    A bite to eat, and he feels fine.
    Yes, he’s on his way
    to one more working day.
    (CHORUS)

    On Thursday night,
    when he comes home from work,
    he gets undressed, and if his room’s a mess,
    he cleans the house. Sometimes he takes a rest.
    Maybe he cooks something delicious,
    and when he’s done
    he washes all the pots and dishes,
    then goes to bed.
    He knows the weekend’s just ahead.

    Top Notch Pop Lyrics - I Wasn’t Born Yesterday [Unit 14]

    I went to school and learned the lessons
    of the human heart.
    I got an education in
    psychology and art.
    It doesn’t matter what you say.
    I know the silly games you play.
    (CHORUS)
    I wasn’t born yesterday.
    I wasn’t born yesterday.
    Well, pretty soon I graduated
    with a good degree.
    It took some time to understand
    the way you treated me,
    and it’s too great a price to pay.
    I’ve had enough, and anyway,
    (CHORUS)
    So you think I’d like to marry you
    and be your pretty wife?
    Well, that’s too bad, I’m sorry, now.
    Grow up and get a life!
    It doesn’t matter what you say.
    I know the silly games you play.
    (CHORUS)
