There is trouble
And it’s all inside the radio
They are down down down
Down under their ceilings, talking, you know

They’re talking ‘bout myself again
Talking like it really mattered to me
They’re talking ‘bout my reputation
They’re talking about you and me now, ha

When the sun goes down tonight
Oh, they sure would like to go
All the way up moving downtown


I say: This world
Ain’t it just going down down down
Gloriously grinning presidents
And it rains all day
(yes it does)

And the bars with their mouths open
Swallow all the little sounds they make
Oh, their conversatoins about the weather
Conversations about the work they do
And the little lady in the elevator
Oh, and they’re talking about me and you and me and you and me and you and me and you
And they’re talking about their little reputations
I said: they’re talking about their reputations
Don’t you hear me saying: I said: They’re talking about their reputation
Oh, and they think they’re takling about my generation

When the sun goes down tonight
They sure would like to go
All the way
And when the sun lights up the sky
They sure would like to go
All the way back movin’ updown
