Song Lyrics

What A Day That Was


Well, I`m dressed up so nice

An` I`m doin` my best

Yes I`m startin` over..

Startin` over in another place

Lemme tell you a story

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

An` don`t you dare sit down

Now don`t you dare sit back

And don`t you dare speak up!

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 bolts of lightning

Now an electrical storm

Starts a chain reaction

Go pull a fire alarm

I`m dreaming of a city

It was my own invention

And I put the wheels in motion

A time for big decisions

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.

Oh 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 ev`ry direction

So if you feel like you`re in a whirlpool

You feel like going home

And if you feel like talking to someone

Who knows the difference between right and wrong

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.

We`re go(in`) boom boom boom That`s the way we live

And in a great big room and That`s the way we live.
