Once In A Lifetime

Talking Heads
You may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
You may find yourself in another part of the world
You may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
You may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife
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

You may ask yourself
How do I work this?
You may ask yourself
Where is that large automobile?
You may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful house!
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
UNDER the water
Carry the water
Remove the water from 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/INTO 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/WHEN THE MONEY'S GONE
Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground

You may ask yourself
What is that beautiful house?
You may ask yourself
Where does that highway GO to?
You may ask yourself
Am I right?...Am I wrong?
You may say to 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/INTO 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 UNDER GROUND
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...
LOOK WHERE MY HAND WAS

Time isn't holding us
Time isn't after us
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
HEY LETS ALL TWIST OUR THUMBS
HERE COMES THE TWISTER
Letting the days go by
SAME AS IT EVER WAS
Letting the days go by
SAME AS IT EVER WAS
Letting the days go by
SAME AS IT EVER WAS
ONCE IN A LIFE TIME
LET THE WATER HOLD ME DOWN
LETTING THE DAYS GO BY
