Songtekst

{transcribed by Adri Verhoef, 17-7-2013}

Ooh, laa-lalaa-lalaa
Ooh, laa-lalaa-lalaa

See the way, the world today, don't know wich way to turn
Hasn't time to listen, hasn't time to learn
Doesn't know wich way to go and even though the light
Burns a little brigther, we stumble through the night

That's how it is and how it stays
Nothing on earth can change our ways

[chorus]:
I've seen the film, I've read the book
The story's still the same
Step inside and take a look
Nobody is to blame
The script is bad, the girl gets had
The hero makes you cry
I've seen the film, I've read the book
Can't change it, how much we try

Ooh, laa-lalaa-lalaa
Ooh, laa-lalaa-lalaa

That's the way it is today each time you play with me
And the lonely hero has our sympathy
From the start, I've played the part
My heart gets broke, my friend
I can see it coming, 'cause I know the end

That's how it is and how it stays
Nothing on earth can change our ways

[chorus]

Ooh, laa-lalaa-lalaa
Ooh, laa-lalaa-lalaa

I've seen the film, I've read the book
The story's still the same
Step inside and take a look
Nobody is to blame
[3x] [fade]
