"that's entertainment" lyrics

Billy Bragg Lyrics

"that's entertainment"

a police car and a screamin' siren,
pneumatic drill and ripped-up concrete,
a baby wailing,
a stray dog howling,
the screech of brakes and lamplight blinking,
that's entertainment,
that's entertainment,
a smash of glass and the rumble of boots,
an electric train and a ripped-up phone booth,
paint-splattered walls and the cry of a tomcat,
lights going out and a kick in the balls,
i say that's entertainment,
that's entertainment,
la la la. days of speed and slow-time mondays,
pissing down with rain on a boring wednesday,
watching the news and not eating your tea,
freezing cold flat with damp on the walls,
i say that's entertainment,
that's entertainment,
waking up at 6 a.m. on a cool warm morning,
opening the windows and breathing in petrol,
an amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard,
watching the telly and thinking 'bout your holidays,
that's entertainment,
that's entertainment,
waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes,
cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume,
a hot summer's day and sticky black tarmac,
feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away,
that's entertainment,
that's entertainment,
two lovers kissing masks a scream of midnight,
two lovers missing the tranquillity of solitude,
getting a cab and travelling on buses,
reading the graffiti about slashed-seat affairs,
i say that's entertainment,
that's entertainment,
la la la.
