Artist/Band: David Byrne
Lyrics for Song: Wanted for Life
Lyrics for Album: Other Songs - David Byrne



Fill the suitcase up- did he stiff somebody?

Will he testify?- if you say you're sorry



Grown men laugh when they heard that lie

10 to 12- gonna hang them high

Wanted for life

Hu hu- I'm wanted for life



Ran outside

The buildings dropped

Now he stole the crown

Do the buggers never stop?

Said- wait a minute pop

Hoo Hey-Wait a minute pop



Now upon this earth

We stand on dirt

Well I Got tore down

But I'm still standing up

Ev'ry little drop

(I'm thankful for) ev'ry little drop



Torn and Frayed

Even though it's full a holes

Get cha where ya wanna go

Get cha where ya wanna go



Even though you're smarter than me

I'll write your autobiography

I'm using all the words up

I got my grammar in the 5 and dime

I'm givin' all the words up

Now I know the words are mine



If ya close your eyes- do ya picture money?

Did he change his mind? Does it keep you runnin'?



The blind men sing

The girls gone wild

The statute's clear

And they emphasized

Wanted for life

Hoo hoo I'm wanted for life



So, Swing that stick

Throw that rock

Inch by inch

Goin step by step

Yeah- wait a minute pop

Wait a minute pop



Now Upon this earth

We stand on dirt

We got torn down

But I'm still standing up

Every little drop

(I'm thankful for) ev'ry little drop



Torn and frayed

My testimony's full of holes

Get me where I wanna go

Get cha where ya wanna go



Pardon me sir

I don't live here no more

But see that's the way it goes

I'm moving on a gravel road



Pardon me sir

I don't live here no more

Maybe that's the way it goes

I guess that that's the way it goes



Pardon me sir

I don't live here no more

I'm moving on a gravel road

Maybe that's the way it goes
