The Dresden Dolls Sing Lyrics

Last updated: 12/15/2011 10:00:00 AM

There is this thing that's like touching except you don't touch
Back in the day it just went without saying at all
All the world's history gradually dying of shock
There is this thing it's like talking except you don't talk
You sing
You sing

Sing for the bartender sing for the janitor sing
Sing for the cameras sing for the animals sing
Sing for the children shooting the children sing
Sing for the teachers who told you that you couldn't sing
Just sing

There is thing keeping everyone's lungs and lips locked
It is called fear and it's seeing a great renaissance
After the show you can not sing wherever you want
But for now let's just pretend we're all gonna get bombed
So sing

Sing cause its obvious sing for the astronauts sing
Sing for the president sing for the terrorists sing
Sing for the soccer team sing for the janjuweed sing
Sing for the kid with the phone who refuses to sing
Just sing

Life is no cabaret
We don't care what you say
We're invading you anyway

You motherfuckers you'll sing someday...
You motherfuckers you'll sing someday...
You motherfuckers you'll sing someday...

I've been in love with the Dresden Dolls ever since I first heard them. I listen to them as often as I can and share them with everyone I know. Their songs speak to me and I can't help but enjoy the music as well as the words.

On a side note, "the kid with the phone who refuses to sing"? ...yeah. I frickin hate that kid. And they're everywhere, the bastards.

love | Reviewer: kizzy | 9/29/09

I l ove love love the dresden dolls and it just makes me sad that they barely even get radio play here (sd) but nonetheless... they are amazing and i love this song.
i rarely ever get teary and i not much of a crier but this song is just so... i dont even know, brillant, it just makes me kinda want to cry.
why dont we all just sing?

Goosebumps | Reviewer: Jennifer | 8/23/08

I get goosebumps everytime I hear this song. The lyrics are amazing and I love when choirs (not really a choir in this song but back up singers) are put in songs it just sends chills it's really really beautiful.

Amazing | Reviewer: Melanie | 7/13/07

This is one of their great songs. It's especially beautiful live. I know a couple of people were crying when they heard it.

Awesome song, Incorrect lyrics. | Reviewer: w1z | 7/1/07

There are 2 versions of this song, & the lyrics of the 2 versions are here combined. One version is the radio edit, which in the beginning uses the word touching instead of F***ing. However, this same version does not say motherf****er 3 times at the end, but just Mother without any additional wordage.

The original, unedited version uses the word f***ing, and Motherf***ers respectively.

I personally prefer it without the unnecessary swearing, but it is a beautiful song, definitely on my top hit list.
