Split Enz – Small World lyrics

It's a small world, and you must agree
It's not a very big house, for a large family
People moving out or making home improvements
but the basic problem never seems to go away

It's a small world

It's common knowledge, satellite looks on
and a Russian man is sent to spy upon us
It's enough to make a man feel uncomfortable
Someone else's leader needs kill Pacific Atoll[1]

It's a small world

Oh, well there's only just enough to go 'round
Wanna shout about it, shout about it
Small world, and it's getting smaller
There's no getting away from it all in a small world

Baby boom-town, and the population swells
There's a broken circuit no one tells the truth
Are we mammals with a future in this nutshell
When you're small it should be easier to pick things up

It's a small world

Oh, wanna hold it in my hand
Gonna roll it like a ball
Oh, we're a drop in the ocean
Gonna shout about it, shout about it

Small world, and it's getting smaller
There's no getting away from it all in a small world
Yes and it's a strange place for bringing up your children
When there's no guarantee that they'll have a future
In a small world

[1] Mururoa (sp?) Atoll, now suspected to be leaking radioactive elements
into the pacific, all thanks to the French Government.
