Talking Heads The Facts of Life Lyrics

sponsored links
Monkey see and monkey do
Ma king babies, eating food
Smelly things, pubic hair
Words of love, in the air
Sparks fly, shoo ting out
Ma king sure that everything is working
I can't turn you down
We are programmed happy little children
Matter over mind
We can not resist so I won't fight it
Love is a machine
Love is a machine without a driver
The facts of life
The facts of life
A masterpiece
Smokey water
Air conditioned
Boys 'n' girls
And automation
Designer jeans
And human beings
Machines of love
Machines of love
Strong in body, strong in mind
A love machine with the facts of life
The facts of life
The facts of life
So much sex 'n' violence
Must be a bad design
We're stupid to be fighting
Every night
The monsters we create
They welcome us aboard
The best in advertising
From coast to coast
The girls and boys combine
Like monkeys in the zoo
The clouds have silver linings
Looks pretty good
People fall in love like in fairy tales
I'm not sure I like, what they can do
I'm afraid that God has no master plan
He only takes -- what he can use
Factory life, ice cream and pie
Factory life
Someday we'll live on Venus
And men will walk on Mars
But we will still be monkeys
Down deep inside
If chimpanzees are smart
Then we will close our eyes
And let our instincts guide us
Oh oh oh oh no
