Thomas Dolby – Nothing New Under The Sun lyrics

There is nothing new under the sun

Hippocratic oath
Apathy on toast
Psilocybin nutroast

Panic on the seas
Mozzarella cheese
Diplomatic deep-freeze

Stuck for a line
You grovel for a rhyme
God is nearly vocal time

Head without a spine
Why am I surprised
To find you supine

Hey any fool can write a hit
Loop me a breakbeat baby
I'll tweak it till it fits

During the bounce
I can sniff my own armpit
There is nothing new under the sun

From a little germ
Incubator worm
Watch a chrysalis emerge

Lord of the flies
Human genocides
Lyrically justified

You could have quit while you're on top
I know, there is no fool like a fool
That don't know when to stop

Live long enough
You begin to question
There is nothing new under the sun

Fiddle with a stapler
Spin a paperweight
Watch the market fluctuate

Suddenly a tune
Bolt from the blue
Music is in love with you

Somehow the cancer found a lung
You woke up to hear your words
On the tip of every tongue

Now go learn to live
The legend you've become
There is nothing new under the sun

There is nothing new under the sun
There is nothing new
