TALKING HEADS


What A Day That Was Lyrics

Oh well, I'm dressed up so nice
And I'm doing my best
And I'm starting over
I'm starting over in another place

Lemme tell you a story
A big chief with a golden crown
He's got rings on his fingers
And then he walks up, up to the throne

He's making shapes with his hands
And don't you dare sit back
And don't you dare sit down
And don't you dare speak up

And on the first day we had everything we could stand
Who could've asked for more?
And on a second day there was nothing else left to do
Oh what a day that was

Well there are fifty thousand beggars
Roaming in the streets
And they have lost all their possessions
And they have nothing left to eat

Down come a bolt of lightning
Start an electrical storm
And starts a chain reaction
"Go pull a fire alarm", I said that

I'm dreaming of a city
It was my own invention
I put the wheels in motion
A time for big decisions

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

What a day that was
And that's the way it goes
There's a million ways to get things done
There's a million ways to make things work out

Oh well, I'm going right through
And the light came down
And they're rounding them up
From all over town

They're moving forward and backwards
Moving backwards and front
And they're enjoying themselves
Moving 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 know the difference between right and wrong

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

We're going boom, boom, boom and that's the way we live
And in a great big room and that's the way we live
We're going boom, boom, boom and that's the way we live
And in a great big room and that's the way we live
We're going boom, boom, boom and that's the way we live
And in a great big room and that's the way we live
