Talking Heads Uh-Oh, Love Comes to Town Lyrics

Wait, wait for the moment to come
Stand up, stand up and take my hand
Believe, believe in mystery
Love, love is simple as one, two, three

I'm a know-it-all, I'm smartest man around
That's right, you learn real fast through the smartest girl in town
So here come a riddle, here come a clue
If you were really smart, you'd know what to do
When I say

Jump back, sit back, get back, relax
It's okay
I've called in sick I won't go to
Work today
I'd rather be with the
One I love
I neglect my duties, I be in trouble but

I've been to college, I've been to school
I've met the people that you read about in books
Here come a riddle, here come a clue
If you were really smart you'd know what to do when I say
Jet pilot gone out of control, ship captain on the ground
Stock broker make a bad investment when love has come to town

Where, where is my common sense?
How did I get in a jam like this?
Believe, I believe in mystery
Love, love love love is simple as one-two-three

Here come a riddle, here come a clue
If you were really smart, you'd know what to do when I say
Why am I going out of my head, whenever you're around?
The answer is obvious, love has come to town
