John Fogerty – Headlines lyrics

Yeah, hey! What you talkin' about?

I read it in the paper today,
Two cats howlin' 'til the break of day.
Up on the back fence, they're makin' a play;
One stepped across the line, the other blew him away.

Up in the morning, down the road 'n I'm gone;
Been with my sweetie, we was up all night long.
My head is throbbin', man I gotta find a song,
The radio depress me, tell me what's goin' on?

Headlines, screamin' everywhere I go;
Headlines, like I really want to know;
Headlines, gotta million ways to say,
Another crazy day, headlines.

I saw it on the 6: 30 news,
Some freakin' deacon wearin' military shoes;
He's mad at me, buddy, he's mad at you,
He's gonna drop the big one and there's nothin' I can do.


Oh! Just another crazy day.
Do, do, do, do.

Up on the mountain, man I'm feelin' alright,
Been to the temple and I'm sleepin' at night.
Here come a stranger, need a paper to light,
Man, he's bustin' with the news about the fightin' tonight.


Oh! Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah!
Whoa! Think I'll play all night!
