Billy Bragg – That's Entertainment lyrics

A police car, a screaming 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
Electric train and a ripped up phone booth
Paint splattered walls and the cry of a tom cat
Lights going out and a kick in the balls

I said, "That's entertainment
That's entertainment"

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 and death on the walls

I said, "That's entertainment
That's entertainment"

Waking up at 6 A. M. On a cool morning
Opening the windows and breathing in petrol
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 news and smoking cigarettes
Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume
Hot summers 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 at the scream of midnight
Two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude
Getting a cab and traveling on buses
Reading the graffiti about slashed seat affairs

I said, "That's entertainment
That's entertainment"
