Talking Heads
What A Day That Was

well im dressed up so nice
and im doing my best
and im starting over
im starting over in another place

let me tell you a story
a big chief with a golden crown
hes got rings on his fingers
and he walks up to the throne
hes making shakes with his hand

dont you dare sit back
dont you dare sit down
dont you dare speak up

but on the first day
we had everything we could stand
couldnt ask for more
and on the,second day
there was nothing else left to do
what a day that was

well there are 50 thousand beggars
roaming in the streets
they have lost all their possessions
they have nothing left to eat

down come a bolt of lightning
start an electrical storm
it starts a chain reaction
go pull the fire alarm

im dreaming of the city
it was my own invention
i put the wheels in motion
time for big decisions

on the first day
we had everything we could stand
oh we let it fall
and on the second day
there was nothing else left at all
oh what a day that was
oh and thats the way it goes

theres a million ways to get things done
theres a million ways to make things work out

well im going right through
and a light came down
and then round them up
from all over town

moving forwards and backwards
moving backwards and front
and then they joined themselves
went in every direction

and if you feel like you're in a whirlpool
you feel like going home
you feel like talking to someone
who knows the difference between right and wrong

oh and on the first day
we had everything we could stand
oh we let it fall
and on the second day
there was nothing else left at all
oh what a day that was

we're going boom boom boom
and thats the way we live
and in a great big room
and thats the way we live
(X3)
