TALKING HEADS


Found A Job Lyrics

"Damn that television... what a bad picture"
"Don't get upset, it's not a major disaster"
"There's nothing on tonight," he said, "I don't know what's the matter!"
"Nothing's ever on," she said, "so... I don't know why you bother."

We've heard this little scene, we've heard it many times
People fighting over little things and wasting precious time
They might be better off... I think... the way it seems to me
Making up their own shows, which might be better than T.V.

Judy's in the bedroom, inventing situations
Bob is on the street today, scouting up locations
They've enlisted all their family
They've enlisted all their friends
It helped save their relationship
And made it work again...

Their show gets real high ratings, they think they have a hit
There might even be a spinoff, but they're not sure 'bout that
If they ever watch T.V. again, it'd be too soon for them
Bob never yells about the picture now, he's having too much fun

Judy's in the bedroom, inventing situations
Bob is on the street today, scouting up locations
They've enlisted all their family
They've enlisted all their friends
It helped save their relationship
And made it work again...

So think about this little scene, apply it to your life
If your work isn't what you love, then something isn't right
Just look at Bob and Judy, they're happy as can be
Inventing situations, putting them on T.V.

Judy's in the bedroom, inventing situations
Bob is on the street today, he's having a vacation
They've enlisted all their family
They've enlisted all their friends
It helped save their relationship
And made it work again...
