I sat in front of speakers for seven hours one night pressing rewind over
and over in order to be able to sing this song word for word.  Last week,
my friend sends me a copy of the exact same lyrics that it took him seven
seconds to download.  Oh well... either way, here are th correct lyrics
to "Its The End of the World As We Know it (and I Feel Fine."


That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an
aeroplane -
Lenny Bruce is not afraid.  Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn -
world serves its own needs, don't misserve your own needs.  Feed it up a
knock,
speed, grunt no, strength no.  Ladder structure clatter with fear--fight
down hype.  Wire in a fire, representatives engage in a government for
hire and a combat site.  Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry with the furies
breathing down your neck.  Team by team reporters baffled, trump, tethered
crop.  Look at that low plane!  Fine then.  Uh oh, overflow, population,
common group, but it'll do.  Save yourself, serve yourself.  World serves its
own needs, listen to your heart bleed.  Tell me is the rapture in the
reverent and the right - right.  You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight,
bright light, feeling pretty psyched.

It's the end of the world as we know it.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

Six o'clock - TV hour.  Don't get caught in foreign tower.  Slash and burn,
return, listen to yourself churn.  Lock him in uniform and book burning,
blood letting.  Every motive escalate.  Automotive incinerate.  Light a
candle,
light a votive.  Step down, step down.  Watch a heel crush, crush.  Uh oh,
this means no fear - cavalier.  Renegades steer clear!  A tournament,
a tournament, a tournament of lies.  Offer me solutions, offer me
alternatives
and I decline.

[Note: A tournament of lies is one interpretation... another common one is
'I'll turn 'em in, I'll turn 'em in, I'll turn 'em in in a flash.']

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.
The other night I dreamt, a nice continental drift divide.  Mount St.
Edelite. Leonard Bernstein.  Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs.
Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly bean, boom!  You symbiotic, patriotic,
slam, but neck, right?  Right.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine...fine...

knowing these words makes the world go around and eventually blow up...
this is not a happy bouncy song.

lots of rain,
tofu

Little nitpick: the chord over "In a government for hire..." should probably be an a minor.

Tofu, you sure those lyrics are right?
Thats the best ive seen on this site, bu I remember a while ago I saw the actual copy of the lyrics from the band themselves online somewhere and they were a tiny bit different... I'll get back to you with exact examples

J.S. Bach is right, its not really a little nitpick, its definately a minor chord, a major sounds way wrong
