Day By Day Lyrics

Day by Day

Day by Day

It's been Day by Day all the way

Twenty odd years now we've bought you the news

Respected the region and all of its views

Now we say our goodbyes in this way

In our final programme today

From Monday to Friday, right down to goodbye day

Our programmes' been leading the way

 

We've had fun, we've had fun

With most of the things that we've done

Peter has solved lots of crimes on the show

Trevor has warned us, I hardly think so

But he does get it right now and then

So let's give him 5 out of 10

Flown over from Dover, Mike Field has come over

And Brian's come down from his den

 

Then there's you, then there's you

The folks that sit at home and view

Thank you for watching us on the TV

Thank you for liking the folk that you see

For without you we've nothing to do

The programme has just been for you

So let us reward you, right now we applaude you

By drinking a toast just for you

 

Day by Day

Day by Day

It's been Day by Day all the way

Twenty odd years now we've bought you the news

Respected the region and all of its views

Now we say our goodbyes in this way

In our final programme today

From Monday to Friday, right down to goodbye day

Our programmes' been leading the way
