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?

Chorus:
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.

Chorus

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.

Chorus
Chorus

Oh! oh, yeah! oh, yeah!
Whoa! think I'll play all night!
