She Has Funny Cars Question

Postby Aerie on Wed Feb 20, 2008 7:04 pm

Hi, I'm a new passenger on the Airplane, and I have a question about one of my all time favorite songs by this great band...

During the "They're very wise to their disguise, trying to revolutionize tomorrow" verse, what is Grace singing? I can't seem to make it out behind everything else going on there.

Thanks!
Aerie

Jorma told me he and Spencer wrote the song about Spencer's girlfriend who, in fact, owned a "funny lookin kind of car."

Lyrics -

Every day I try so hard to know your mind
And find out what's inside you
Time goes on and I don't know just where you are
Or how I'm going to find you

You can do whatever you please
The world's waiting to be seized
You can collect all the neglect
Or all the self-respect you need, what you need

And I know... and I know... and I know

Your mind's guaranteed
It's all you'll ever need
So what do you want with me?

We live but once
But good things can be found around
In spite of all the sorrow

If you see black
You can't look back
You can't look front
You cannot face tomorrow

Some have it nice
Fat and round, flash, paradise
They're very wise to their disguise
Trying to revolutionize tomorrow

And I know... and I know... and I know

Your mind's guaranteed
It's all you'll ever need
So what do you want with me?

Hello Aerie, and welcome to the forum.

I can only make out a little bit of what Grace is saying. All I can say is that she sings, "You may be wise but, ..." and she joins in with the others at the end with "...tomorrow". If anybody else has an idea of what she says, share it!

This won't be of much help, but all I can make out in this lovely song is the following...

(Marty singing) You can do whatever you please
(Grace) Do you always...

(Marty) The world's waiting to be seized
(Grace)...want to leave me...(something??)
(Marty) You can collect all the neglect
Or all the self-respect you need, what you need

Then in the second verse...

(Marty) They're very wise to their disguise
(Grace) ..may be wise, but they're...
Trying to revolutionize tomorrow

In other words, I really have no idea. lol

^^^ I do know that the "something" is "Love", so it'd be "Do you always..........Want to leave me love?.......Keep on walking here............'s what you need."
