Eine bitterböse, satirische Darstellung der Vorstadt. Die Songwriter Gerry Goffin und Carole King zogen aus New York nach Orange County. Der Umzug war Kings Wunsch. Goffin hasste die Vorstadt, in die sie zogen.

Lyrics

The local rock group down the street Is trying hard to learn their song, They serenade the weekend squire Who just came out to mow his lawn. Another pleasant valley Sunday, Charcoal burning everywhere, Rows of houses that are all the same, And no one seems to care. See Mrs. Gray, she's proud today Because her roses are in bloom, And Mr. Green, he's so serene, He's got a TV in every room. Another pleasant valley Sunday, Here in Status Symbol Land, Mothers complain about how hard life is, And the kids just don't understand. Creature comfort goals, they only numb my soul, And make it hard for me to see. Ahhh thoughts all seem to stray to places far away, I need a change of scenery. Ta ta ta ta, ta ta ta ta Ta ta ta ta, ta ta ta ta Another pleasant valley Sunday, Charcoal burning everywhere. Another pleasant valley Sunday, Here in Status Symbol Land. Another pleasant valley Sunday, (A pleasant valley Sunday) Another pleasant valley Sunday, (A pleasant valley Sunday)
