Rutles – Shangri-la lyrics

Did you ever get the feeling
That the truth is less revealing than a downright lie?
And did you think your head was hip
To certain things it's not equipped to qualify?

All day long the sky is blue
And everyone says "How do you do" in Shangri-La
Every day's a perfect day
And you can go your own sweet way in Shangri-La

In Shangri-La, in Shangri-La
You can be whoever you are in Shangri-La

Investment with a good return, provides the means
Through which we earn our daily bread
Insisting on an equal cut
Some people even bust a gut to stay ahead

All day long the sky is blue
And no one has a lot to do in Shangri-La
In Shangri-La, in Shangri-La
You can be whoever you are in Shangri-La

It's a strange world we live in
But surely we're forgiven if we don't know where to turn

With paradise for hire
On the back streets of desire, we all live and learn

All day long the sky is blue
And everyone's in love with you in Shangri-La
Lovers dance and children sing
And everybody does their thing in Shangri-La

In Shangri-La, in Shangri-La
You can be whoever you are
In Shangri-La hah hah hah
In Shangri-La, in Shangri-La
You can be whoever you are in Shangri-La

All together now, one two three

Lah dee doo dah, lah dee dah
Here we are in Shangri-La
Lah dee doo dah, lah dee dah
Here we are in Shangri-La

Lah dee doo dah, lah dee dah
Here we are in Shangri-La
Lah dee doo dah, lah dee dah
Here we are in Shangri-La

Lah dee doo dah, lah dee dah
Here we are in Shangri-La
Lah dee doo dah, lah dee dah
Here we are in Shangri-La
