Once in a Lifetime [Talking Heads]

[Covers]

 

Lyrics

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

and you may ask yourself, how do i work this
and you may ask yourself, where is that large automobile
and you may tell yourself, this is not my beautiful house
and 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

water dissolving, and water removing
there is water at the bottom of the ocean
carry the water at the bottom of the ocean
remove the water at 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, after the money's gone
once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
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, after the money's gone
once in a lifetime, water flowing underground

and you may ask yourself, what is that beautiful house
and you may ask yourself, where does that highway go
and you may ask yourself, am i right, am i wrong
and you may tell 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, after the money's gone
once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
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, after the money's gone
once in a lifetime, water flowing underground

same as it ever was
