Artist/Band: David Byrne
Lyrics for Song: The Sound of Business [Knee Play 3]
Lyrics for Album: Other Songs - David Byrne



They were driving south on the highway

Their business was in another town

Bigger than the town they were driving from

Business took place during office hours in both towns



This drive was considered business

The feeling of passing other cars

Was also considered business

A feeling of business being done



The feeling of drifting slowly

Through a field of moving vehicles

This was the real speed, the speed of business

Not the numbers on the speedometer



One of them was playing with the radio

Slowly changing the channel from one station to another

Sometimes listening to both channels at once

On one channel a man was talking to another man on the telephone

The other channel was playing oldies



'Gone For Good', 'Listening Wind'

'Puzzle Power', 'Beechwood Serenade'

'Sunshine And Sugar', 'Golden Windows'

'Taste Of Believing', 'Carnival Girl'

'Love Walks Away', 'Wishing Well'



'Knew You Could', 'A Face Like That'

'Dark Highway', 'Shakin? Venus'

'Colored Wheels', 'Visit Me Quick'

'Lonesome Money', 'School Of Heartache'

'Painted Smiles'



The sound of business being done
