LOUDON WAINWRIGHTA Hard Day On The Planet Lyrics
The dollar went down and the President said
ďWhoís in charge, now?Ē I donít know, take your pick.
A new disease every day and the old ones are coming back
Things are looking kind of gray, like theyíre going to black
Donít turn on the TV, donít show me the paper
(I) donít want to know he got kidnapped or why they all raped her
I want to go on vacation Ďtill the pressure lets up
But they keep hijacking airplanes and blowing them up
Itís been a hard day on the planet
How much is it all worth?
Itís getting harder to understand it
Things are tough all over on earth.
Itís hot in December and cold in July
When it rains it pours out of a poisonous sky
In California the body counts keep getting higher
Itís evil out there, man that state is always on fire.
Everyone has a system, but they canít seem to win
Even Bob Geldorf looks alarmingly thin
I got to get on that shuttle get me out of this place
[| From: http://www.elyrics.net |]
But thereís gonna be warfare up there in outer space
Iíve got clothes on my back and shoes on my feet
A roof over my head and something to eat
My kids are all healthy and my folks are alive
You know, itís amazing but sometimes I think Iíll survive
Iíve got all of my fingers and all of my toes
Iím pretty well off I guess, I suppose
So how come I feel bad so much of the time?
A man ainít an islandóJohn Dunn wasnít lying
Itís business as usual; some things never change
Itís unfair, itís tough, unkind and itís strange
We donít seem to learn; we canít seem to stop
Maybe some explosions would close up the shop
You know, maybe that would be fine: we would be off the hook
We resolved all our problems, never mind what it took
And it all would be over, finito, the end
Until the survivers started up all over again
