"Once in a lifetime" - Talking Heads
#1

a classic tune from the 80s from talking heads Lovesmilie Falcon

....check the lyrics out.....how accurate are these lyrics???
...imo they are spot on!!!!!!!!!

and you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
and you may find yourself in another part of the world
and you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
and you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful
wife
and you may ask yourself-well...how did i get here?

letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
letting the days go by/water flowing underground
into the blue again/after the money’s gone
once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

and you may ask yourself
how do i work this?
and you may ask yourself
where is that large automobile?
and you may tell yourself
this is not my beautiful house!
and you may tell yourself
this is not my beautiful wife!

letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
letting the days go by/water flowing underground
into the blue again/after the money’s gone
once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
same as it ever was...same as it ever was...

water dissolving...and water removing
there is water at the bottom of the ocean
carry the water at the bottom of the ocean
remove the water at the bottom of the ocean!

letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
letting the days go by/water flowing underground
into the blue again/in the silent water
under the rocks and stones/there is water underground.

letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
letting the days go by/water flowing underground
into the blue again/after the money’s gone
once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

and you may ask yourself
what is that beautiful house?
and you may ask yourself
where does that highway go?
and you may ask yourself
am i right? ...am i wrong?
and you may tell yourself
my god!...what have i done?

letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
letting the days go by/water flowing underground
into the blue again/in the silent water
under the rocks and stones/there is water underground.

letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
letting the days go by/water flowing underground
into the blue again/after the money’s gone
once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
same as it ever was...same as it ever was...

classic chune.....i should own a LOT more talking heads. they were so sick.

my fav line is :


and you may ask yourself,
how do i work this?


so simple, so resonant.

i love the talking heads.

"i can feel my lifetime piling up..."

What pisses me off is when people love the tom jones & nina version of "burning down the house" as it sucks in comparison to the talkingheads one.

remain in light?

my dad came home with this one day, probably in the late 80's... it was probably prompted by sugar bear... :d anyhow i was pleasantly entertained by once in a lifetime, but i have to say, it really was born under punches (the heat goes on) that blew me right away... that one is teh tune Icon_eek
