Make Us Happy

We got things that’ll make you feel happy
take a little pill gonna make you real snappy
something in the air...

we got a life of picnic and leisure
take another tab gonna give you all a pleasure
hope you’re high, it’s gonna be fine....

no matter what you got there’s always something better
and everything you want you can get it on the never never
never never gonna pay

oh it’s a strange world
looks like it’s all on TV
see someone famous
living a version of you and me

We’re working pretty hard but we never have a dollar
everything I get I’m gonna blow it on another
big TV, to watch the world go by.

No matter what I watch there’s always something better
I’m thanking Rupert Murdoch for creating all my leisure
Time machine - can’t be far behind.

I want to take a trip but I can do it in the ether
memories are better and souvenirs are cheaper - stay at home
take a selfie with the wife

oh it’s a strange world
looks like we’re all on TV
saw myself famous
living a version of you not me

SOLO

oh it’s a strange world
looks like we’re all on TV
saw myself famous
living a version of you not me

the government says that they need to keep an eye on
everything you think cos they want to keep a spy on
you and me - “we have reason to believe..”

with terror in the sky revolution in the gutter
look at the news - it’s full of scary nutters
shock TV - keep you all afraid

so do a little shopping if it makes you feel better
we’re keeping you alive and we’re working on the weather
carbon tax, that’ll do the job, yeah right
Planet Earth? Couldn’t give it away
Planet Earth? Couldn’t make it pay

oh it’s a strange world
looks like we’re all on TV
saw myself blameless
living a version of you not me

We got things that’ll make you feel happy
take a little pill gonna make you real snappy
something in the air…
something in the air...

Song Comments

Po(t)pouri
what a musical, cabaret, gypsyish witty, humorous concoction, wise and wonderful, eclectic and indie, keeps surprisin', cheers...


APPLAUSE
supple vocal, accordion, sparklin' clarinet-y, in places, and a wild romp, 'oh what a strange world/looks like we're all on tv,' a chronicler, a minstrel jester-poet...
