Adrian Belew – People lyrics

People fly
People flee
People clam and say "it wasn't me"
People fish
People beef
People arm to the teeth
Yes, you've got people on the tube,
Walking on the moon
People at the bottom of the sea
People in tombs
People in igloos
Even a tribe of pygmies

People are the main spring
Turning the world around
People, they're the main spring
Spinning this world upside down

People sun
People toast
People tire while other people smoke
People bowl
People rock
People pay to see two people box

Watch me, face me
Dress me, baby me
Phone me, wire me
House me
Bug me
Fire me

People are the main spring
Spinning the world around
People, they're the main spring
Turning this world inside out
