Oingo Boingo

Wake Up (It’s 1984) – Oingo Boingo

Wake up! won’t you listen to me
Wake up! won’t you listen to me
won’t you listen to me
Wake up! won’t you listen to me
Wake up! won’t you listen to me
won’t you listen to me

Big brother’s watching, we watch him back
We see right through his disguise
He tries to scare us, with angry words
But we all know that they’re lies
Whole world is waiting
Just see the fear in their eyes

Whole world is watching, observing every move
Is it beginning or the end?
Just like a chess game, but so intense
That I just don’t understand
Anticipation
It’s much to big to pretend

CHORUS
(Wake up), it’s 1984
(Wake up), but we’ve been here before
(Wake up), it’s 1984
(Wake up), but we’ve been here before, (here before)

Big brother’s screaming but we don’t care
Cause he’s got nothing to say
Think of the future, think of the prophecy
Think of the children of today
Big brother’s marching
So we all stand in his way
Open your eyes, sisters and brothers
Neatly disguised, so far away
Open your heart, try to remember
Two worlds apart, but so close

(Wake up), it’s 1984
But we’ve been here before
(Wake up), it’s 1984
But we’ve been here before
All our lives leading up to this day, watching and waiting

Wake up! Wake up!
Wake up! Wake up!

Open your eyes, sisters and brothers
Neatly disguised, so far away
Open your heart, try to remember
Two worlds apart, but so close

CHORUS

Whole world is watching
Anticipating
Big brother’s marching
Is it beginning or the end?

CHORUS

Same Man I Was Before – Oingo Boingo

I’m not the same man I was before
I haven’t changed my perception
I haven’t lost my protection
I haven’t lost, haven’t lost, haven’t lost
What I have, lost intentions

Two by two coming through the door
(Singing like a bird)
Boys and girls voices joined in song
(Voices in the air)
Fire crackers making so much noise
(Flying in the air)
They all start yelling at me
. . . . . Everything you do is wrong

I’m not the same boy I was before
But I’ve not changed my desires
I’ve not extinguished the fires
I haven’t lost wide eyed wonder
I haven’t lost, haven’t lost, haven’t lost
The stupid fear of thunder

Two by two walking hand in hand
(Walkin’ in the air)
The bone come marching from the promised land
(Comes from everywhere)
Their voices carry like the sound of glass
(Breaking on the ground)
It burns my ears when they sing
. . . . . Everything you do is wrong

I’m not the same ghost I was before
But I still converse with the spirits
When people talk I don’t hear it
I walk through doors when no one sees me
I disappear, I disappear, disappear
Whenever it may please me

Pain – Oingo Boingo

Welcome to my little world…completely self-contained, yeah
Your problems they will soon be gone (we soak up lots of pain), yeah

If life is a reflecting pool–then we are like a sponge, yeah
Absorbing the good with the bad–we soak up…soak it up

So give me all your troubled thoughts
And baggage you can’t handle, no
We’ll gladly take it off your back (we soak up lots of pain), yeah

(Chorus)
Is it any wonder now-everybody goes insane
Everybody locks the door to keep out any strangers
Everybody’s all pent up–everybody’s got short fuse
Getting ready to blow up, we live in so much danger

Boys and girls in a line — Come and get your big reward
Your’re not too late Just in time
Put your hand on mine you’re mine you’re mine

When everybody has gone to bed–and children are asleep, yeah
I sit up late and watch t.v. (and soak up lots of pain), yeah

Little junior on the bus–his notebook by his side, yeah
He hardly ever makes a fuss–he soaks up so much pain

We’ve traveled far this monkey and me–by airplane boat and train, yeah
We’re here to eat up all your sins (and soak up all your pain), yeah

(Chorus)

Boys and girls of every creed–religion and persuasion, nooo
It’s time to get up off your knees…we soak up…soak it up
So open the door and let me in–don’t question who I am, no
Just shake my hand and give me your name (we soak up…soak it up…)

Nasty Habits – Oingo Boingo

Here’s something to think about
Where would we be without nasty habits, nasty habits
Makes me want to scream and shout
Life would be so dull without nasty habits, nasty habits
All those naughty little things that we don’t discuss publicly
Nasty habits, nasty habits
Tell me your secrets, tell me your name, tell me your secrets

Does it please you to employ little girls or little boys
Nasty habits, nasty habits
Do you like to romp and play by yourself when they’re away
Nasty affair what do I care
Do you peek at magazines filled with doggies and leather queens
Nasty habits, nasty habits
Tell me your secrets that no one should hear
Whisper them softly into my ear I won’t tell, I won’t tell

People act so proper when they’re going ’bout their business
Cup of coffee, lfriendly conversation
‘Til they get home,
‘Til they get home

Turn the phone off, lock the door and shut the curtains
Make sure that the neighbors are without suspicion
No one will know
No one will know
Nasty habits I must condone
No one knows what I do when I’m all alone
Nasty habits I’m so ashamed

Nasty habits here to stay now they’ll never go away
Try and stop you’ll have to pay
Nasty habits are here to stay

(Repeat chorus)

Nasty habits I must condone
No one knows what I do when I’m all alone
Nasty habits I’m so ashamed
But we must not let that stop our little game
Nasty habits are so much fun

Nasty habits here to stay now they’ll never go away
Try and stop you’ll have to pay
Nasty habits are here to stay

I Am The Walrus – Oingo Boingo

I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.
See how they run like pigs from a gun, see how they fly.
I’m crying.

Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come.
Corporation tee-shirt, stupid bloody Tuesday.
Man, you been a naughty boy, you let your face grow long.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.
I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob.

Mister City Policeman sitting
Pretty little policemen in a row.
See how they fly like Lucy in the Sky, see how they run.
I’m crying, I’m crying.
I’m crying, I’m crying.

Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog’s eye.
Crabalocker fishwife, pornographic priestess,
Boy, you been a naughty girl you let your knickers down.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.
I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob.

Sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun.
If the sun don’t come, you get a tan
From standing in the English rain.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.
I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob g’goo goo g’joob.

Expert textpert choking smokers,
Don’t you thing the joker laughs at you?
See how they smile like pigs in a sty,
See how they snied.
I’m crying.

Semolina pilchard, climbing up the Eiffel Tower.
Elementary penguin singing Hari Krishna.
Man, you should have seen them kicking Edgar Alan Poe.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.
I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob g’goo goo g’joob.
Goo goo g’joob g’goo goo g’joob g’goo.

California Girls – Oingo Boingo

Now Pluto girls are neat but you know they’ll
eat you up alive
Although they’re nice to know when it’s a thousand below
it isn’t easy to survive
And Neptune girls are great for dancing
with a dozen arms and legs
They really hold you tight and they can boogie all night
but it’s so hard to kiss three heads

[Chorus]
I wish they all could be California girls
I wish they all could be California girls

Now Martian girls are really pretty
with complexions bright and green
But nothing can surpass an andromeda lass
I think their pointed heads are keen
And Saturn girls are really funny they can
make you laugh to death
With methane clouds alas combined with hydrogen gas
why it’s a chore to take a breath

[Chorus]
I wish they all could be California girls
I wish they all could be California girls

[guitar solo]

[Chorus]
I wish they all could be California girls
I wish they all could be California girls (etc. etc.)

[Chours II] – girls- girls- girls- girls -I need
girls -girls- girls- girls – I need… (etc. etc.)

[Chorus III]- Calif–ornia Calif–ornia Calif– ornia
Calif–ornia Calif–ornia Calif– ornia
