Manfred Mann's Earth Band – Nothing Ever Happens lyrics

Post office clerk puts up a sign saying "Position Closed" and secretaries
Turn off typewriters and put on their coats.
Janitors padlock the gates for security guards to patrol and bachelors phone
Up their friends for a drink while the married ones turn on a chat show and
They'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow.
And Nothing Ever Happens, nothing happens at all, the needle returns to the
Start of the song and we all sing along like before. And we'll all be lonely
Tonight and lonely tomorrow.
Telephone exchanges click while there's nobody there, the Martians could
Land in the car park and no one would care. Closed circut cameras in
Department stores shoot the same movie every day and the stars of these
Films neither die nor get killed, just survive constant action replay.
Repeat chorus
By five o'clock everything's dead and every third car is a cab. Ignorant
People sleep intheir beds like the doped white mice in the college lab.
Repeat Chorus
(J. Currie) Polygram Music Publishing Ltd
