What A Day That Was (Live) Lyrics - Talking Heads

Review The Song (0)



Well, I'm dressed up so nice, an' I'm doin' my best
An' I'm startin' over; I'm startin' over in another place
Lemme tell you a story, big chief with a golden crown
He's got rings on his fingers, and then he walks up, up to the throne
He's makin' shapes with his hands, an' don't choo dare sit back
Now don't choo dare sit down, and don't choo dare speak up!

Ho ho and on the first day, we had everything we could stand
Ooh ooh ooh who could've asked for more?
And on the second day, there was nothing else left to do
Ooh ooh ooh what a day that was, mmm wah!

Well there are 50,000 beggars roaming in the streets
And they have lost all their possessions; they have nothing left to eat
Down come a bolt of lightning, start an electrical storm
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, ho ho

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

Oh a day that was…Oh oh ho ho, 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.

Well I'm going right through and the light came down
And they're roundin' 'em up from all over town, ha ha
They're movin' forward & backwards, there movin' backwards & front
And they're enjoying themselves, moving in ev'ry direction
And if you feel like you're in a whirlpool, you feel like going home
You feel like talking to someone
Who knows the differences between right and wrong, oh

And on the first day, we had everything we could stand
Ooh ooh ooh and then we let it fall
And on the second day, there was nothing else left at all
Ooh ooh ooh what a day that was, oh, oh
Ay yi yi ha ha ha ha! Ooh-la-la! Ha ha ha! Wow! Ow! Yeah!

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
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…Ha! Ha!
