Quick seach using a line of the lyrics:

By the way - it may have been on the radio, but it never cracked the Billboard Top 40.


Day After Day (It's Slippin' Away) - by Shango


Day after day, more people come to L..A..
Don't you tell anybody, the whole place's slipping away
Where can we go, when there's no San Francisco ?
Better get ready to tie up the boat in Idaho

Do you know the swim, you better learn quick Jim
Those who don't know the swim, better sing the hymn
Do the happy (?????)
What can you do when the bush is (?????)

Day after day, more people come to L..A.
Don't you tell anybody, the whole place's shaking away
Where can we go, when there's no San Francisco ?
Better get ready to tie up the boat in Idaho

Where can we go, when there's no San Diego
Better get ready to tie up the boat in Idaho
Do you know the swim, you better learn quick Jim
Those who don't know the swim, better sing the hymn

Do the happy (?????)
Oh, what can you do when the bush is (?????)

Day after day, more people come to L.A.
Don't you tell anybody, the whole place's shaking away
Where can we go, when there's no San Francisco ?
Better get ready to tie up the boat in Idaho

Better get ready to tie up the boat in Idaho
Better get ready to tie up the boat in Idaho
Better get ready to tie up the boat in Idaho
Better get ready to tie up the boat in Idaho
Better get ready to tie up the boat in Idaho
