Song Title:

That's Entertainment

All Songs for Artist









 To each his own, I guess


 ^ A police car and a screaming siren, a pneumatic drill and ripped up concrete
A baby wailing and stray dog howling, the screech of brakes and lamp light blinking
That's entertainment, that's entertainment

A smash of glass and a rumble of boots, an electric train and a ripped up 'phone booth
Paint splattered walls and the cry of a tomcat, lights going out and a kick in the balls
That's entertainment, that's entertainment

Days of speed and slow time Mondays, pissing down with rain on a boring Wednesday
Watching the news and not eating your tea, a freezing cold flat and damp on the walls
That's entertainment, that's entertainment

Waking up at 6 a.m. on a cool warm morning
Opening the windows and breathing in petrol
An amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard
Watching the tele and thinking about your holidays
That's entertainment, that's entertainment

Waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes
Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume
A hot summer's day and sticky black tarmac
Fedding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away
That's entertainment, that's entertainment

Two lovers kissing amongst the scream of midnight
Two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude
Getting a cab and travelling on buses
Reading the graffiti about slashed seat affairs
That's entertainment, that's entertainment
