Video: That’s Entertainment


That’s Entertainment (lyrics)

A police car and a screaming siren -
A pnuematic drill and ripped up concrete -
A baby waiting and stray dog howling -
The screech of brakes and lamplights blinking -
Thats entertainment.

A smash of glass and the rumble of boots -
An electric train and a ripped up phone booth -
Paint splattered walls and the cry of a tomcat -
Lights going out and a kick in the balls -

Thats entertainment.

Days of speed and slow time mondays -
Pissing down with rain on a boring wednesday -
Watching the news and not eating your tea -
A freezing cold flat and damp on the walls -

Thats entertainment.

Waking up at 6 a.m. on a cool warm morning -
Opening the windows and breathing in petrol -
An amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard -
Watching the tele and thinking about your holidays -

Thats entertainment.
Waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes -
Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume -
A hot summers day and sticky black tarmac -
Feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were faraway -

Thats entertainment.

Two lovers kissing amongst the scream of midnight -
Two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude -
Getting a cab and travelling on buses -
Reading the grafitti about slashed seat affairs -

Thats entertainment.
