Song facts

A Fine Day” is an improvisation performed during a souncheck at East Rutherford, on Jun 11, 1993 – during Paul McCartney’s New World Tour. It has been released on Paul Is Live, the live album released in 1993.

Hotel In Benidorm” was another of those soundcheck jams appearing on Paul Is Live; and both tracks were annotated with the tongue-in-cheek: “Tracks 22 and 24 were improvised at soundcheck and therefore may not be suitable for people of critical disposition“.

Lyrics

Now the weekend's here
I plan to have some fun
Take you out in my Oldsmobile, and head for the country
Hey It's a fine day
Yeh, yeh, such a fine day
Hey It's a fine day
I hope to hear you headin' my way

It's a fine day
Checkbook on another fine day
It's a fine day, I'm glad to see you headin' my way

Friday night I took you dancin'
We danced all the way
Sunday mornin' we relaxin'
At your mother's home
Hey, it's a fine day, it's a fine day, fine day
Oh yeh, it's a fine day. I'm glad to see you headin' my way

Well, should leave I took her to the evening classes
Where you learn to read a book
Wednesday morning took me to the playground
Were you lead to take a look
Hey, It's a fine day, such a fine day!
Hey, it's a fine day
I'm glad to see you headin' my way

It's a fine day
Such a fine day
It's a fine day
And I'm glad to see you headin' my way
A fine day
Hey such a fine day
