Talking Heads – Wild Wild Life lyrics

[verse 1]
I'm wearing my fur pajamas
I ride a hot potato
It's tickling my fancy
Speak up, I can't hear you

[chorus version 1]
Here on this mountaintop, oh, oh oh
I got some wild, wild life
I got some news to tell ya, oh oh
About some wild, wild life
Here comes the doctor in charge, oh, oh oh
She's got some wild, wild life
Ain't that the way I like it, oh oh
Living wild, wild

[verse 2]
I wrestle with your conscience
You wrestle with your partner
Sittin' on a window sill
But he spends time behind closed doors, oh

[chorus version 2]
Check out Mr. Businessman, oh oh oh
He bought some wild, wild life
On the way to the stock exchange, oh oh oh
He got some wild, wild life
Break it up when he opens the door, oh oh oh
He's doin' wild, wild life
I know that's the way I like it, oh oh oh
Living wild, wild

[verse 3]
Peace of mind, it's a piece of cake
Thought control
You get on board anytime you like!

[bridge guitar solo]

[verse 4]
Like sittin' on pins and needles
Things fall apart
It's scientific

[chorus version 3]
Sleeping on the interstate, oh oh oh
Getting wild, wild life
Checkin' in, a checkin' out, uh huh
I got a wild, wild life
Spending all of my money and time, oh oh oh
Done too much wild, wild life
We wanna go, where we go, there they go, oh oh oh
I doing wild, wild life
I know it, that's how we start, uh huh
Got some wild, wild life
Paint a picture of me in the daylight, uh oh
I got some wild, wild life
You've grown so tall, you've grown so fast, uh uh uh
Wild, wild
And I know that's the way I like it, oh oh oh

Doing wild, wild, wild, wild, liiiiiiiife (Ohooooo)
