Well, I’m dressed up so nice
And I’m doin' my best
And I’m startin' over
Startin' over in another place
Let me tell you a story
A 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
And don’t you dare sit down
Now don’t you dare talk back
And don’t you dare stick out
And on the first day, we had everything we could hold
Ooh and then we let it fall
And on the second day, there was nothing else left to do
Ooh what a day that was
There are 50,000 beggars
Roaming in the streets
They have lost all their possessions
They have nothing left to eat
Down come the bolt of lightning
Start an electrical storm
Now come a chain reaction
Go pull a fire alarm!
I’m dreaming of a city
It was my own invention
I put the wheels in motion
A time for big decisions
And on the first day, there’s was nothing else left inside
Ooh what they were looking for
And on the second day, I had everything I could stand
Ooh what a day that was
Ooh a day that was
Ooh that’s the way it goes
There’s a million ways to get things done
Three’s a million ways to make things work out
Well I’m going right through
And the light came down
Well they’re roundin' 'em up
From all over town
They’re movin' forward and back
They’re movin' backwards and front
And they’re enjoying themselves
Moving in every direction
And if you feel like you’re in a whirlpool
Feel like going home
Feel like talking to someone
Who knows the difference between right and wrong
And on the first day, I had everything?
Ooh who could have asked for more?
And on the second day, there was nothing left we could?
Ooh what a day that was
We’re goin' boom boom boom
That’s the way we live
In a great big room
That’s the way we live
We’re goin' boom boom boom
That’s the way we live
In a great big room
That’s the way we live
We’re goin' boom boom boom
That’s the way we live
In a great big room
That’s the way we live
