    I can’t remember the name of a rock song from the psychedelic era of the late 60’s. You hear it in elevators and stores as background music these days and it’s going round and round in my head.

    The song is sort of soft and gentle in tone, similar to “California Dreaming”; I believe it was sung by a mixed group, male/female.

    I don’t remember the words but the chorus starts a sentence then cuts off in the middle, repeats the cutoff version, then does the whole thing, something like the rhythm of the following:

    I know my A
    I know my A
    I know my A B C’s

    The notes for the lines above are, as near as I can remember them,

    D-D-C-B
    D-D-C-B
    D-D-C-B-C-D

    I've asked my aging hippy friends, but nobody can identify the tune. Maybe I'm just imagining the whole thing, but if it sounds like anything you remember, please let me know.

    It sounds like it could be Lazy Day by Spanky and our Gang. There is a part of the chorus that goes Lazy Day, Lazy Day, Lazy Day for you and me which fits your pattern.
