Don't Worry About The Government


by Talking Heads (David Byrne)
I see the clouds that move across the sky
I see the wind that moves the clouds away
It moves the clouds over by the building
I pick the building that I want to live in
I smell the pine trees and the peaches in the woods
I see the pine cones that fall by the highway
That's the highway that goes to the building
That's the building that I'm going to live in
(It's over there, it's over there)

 C:	My building has every convenience
It's going to make life easy for me
It's going to be easy to get things done
I will relax, along with my loved ones... 
Loved one, loved ones, visit the building
Take the highway, park, and come up and see me
I'll be working, working, but if you come visit,
I'll put down what I'm doing, my friends are important
Don't worry about me...don't you worry about me

I see the states across this big nation
I see the laws made in Washington D.C.
I think of the ones I consider my favorites
I think of the people that are working for me
Some civil servants are just like my loved ones
They work so hard, and they try to be strong
I'm a lucky guy to live in my building
They all need buildings to help them along
(It's over there, over there)

 C:	My building has every convenience
It's going to make life easy for me
It's going to be easy to get things done
I will relax, along with my loved ones... 
Loved one, loved ones, visit the building
Take the highway, park, and come up and see me
I'll be working, working, but if you come visit,
I'll put down what I'm doing, my friends are important
Don't worry about me...don't you worry about me
