And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
.
.
And you may find yourself in another part of the world
.
.
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
..
.
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house,
w
ith a beautiful wife


.
And you may ask yourself
Well...how did I get here?
.
Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
.
.
Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
.
.
Into the blue again/after the money's gone
.
.
Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.
.
And you may ask yourself
How do I work this?
And you may ask yourself
Where is that large automobile?
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful house!
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful wife!
.
Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
Into the blue again/after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...

Water dissolving...
And water removing
There is water at the bottom of the ocean
Carry the water at the bottom of the ocean
Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean!

Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
Into the blue again/in the silent water
Under the rocks and stones/there is water underground.

Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
Into the blue again/after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

And you may ask yourself
What is that beautiful house?
And you may ask yourself
Where does that highway go?
.

And you may ask yourself
Am I right? ...
Am I wrong?

And you may tell yourself
My god!...
What have I done?

Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...

Time isn't holding us

He......is a tad strange....

Gordie said...

He's from Dumbarton. They're all a bit strange up there.

Mig said...

He is amazing though - even coming from Dumbarton.
But I'm biased. I love Talking Heads. They are rooted in real life. No sentimentality but no lack of compassion.
Is that the same road we've seen before? It looks as though it's come to life all of a sudden.
