Gilbert O'Sullivan What's It All Supposed To Mean? Lyrics

Last updated: 10/11/2004 11:00:00 AM

Tell me what's happening to this world
I've just seen pictures of a girl
Lying half-naked in a stream
She was so fall of life
Yet in one moment killed by a knife
Will somebody tell me
What's it all supposed to mean?

Sign on the door says go away
Sign on the grass says you will pay
Dearly if on it you are seen
Ask your neighbour's the time They'll close their curtains pull down the blinds
Will somebody tell me
What's it all supposed to mean?

You can say what you like
About a bike it does ring a bell at least
Why provide cars that break every law we make
Not the least of which is the speed they can exceed
You can say what you like
About goodbyes
They boost tissue sales at least
I don't know anyone whose love has gone
Who does not require a multitude of these

A clip round the ear it must be said
Never hurt anyone instead
Taught you a lesson you'd not seen
And yet do that today
You could so easily be put in jail
Will somebody tell me
What's it all supposed to mean?
