Song Lyric Sunday: “Us” Regina Spektor

This  weeks   Song Lyric  Sunday , inspired  by Helen Espinosa  at  This thing  called  life one word at a  time    Is Us by  Regina Spektor

Rules and Pingback

I love Regina Spektor   she is a Russian  singer  songwriter  and  she  writes  such  stories!!  I was introduced  to her  by  my  youngest  son  years  ago and I have loved her ever since. I have picked one of her  songs  which  usually  cheers  me up  full of  double meanings  and poking  fun  at  world leaders  and politicians. The  video is  also  brilliant  and  so I  do hope  you like it!

“Us”

They made a statue of us
And it put it on a mountain top
Now tourists come and stare at us
Blow bubbles with their gum
Take photographs have fun, have fun

They’ll name a city after us
And later say it’s all our fault
Then they’ll give us a talking to
Then they’ll give us a talking to
Because they’ve got years of experience
We’re living in a den of thieves
Rummaging for answers in the pages
We’re living in a den of thieves
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious

We wear our scarves just like a noose
But not ’cause we want eternal sleep
And though our parts are slightly used
New ones are slave labor you can keep

We’re living in a den of thieves
Rummaging for answers in the pages
We’re living in a den of thieves
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious

They made a statue of us
They made a statue of us
The tourists come and stare at us
The sculptor’s marble sends regards
They made a statue of us
They made a statue of us
Our noses have begun to rust
We’re living in a den of thieves
Rummaging for answers in the pages
Were living in a den of thieves

And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious
And it’s contagious

My favourite  line: They made a statue of us Our noses have begun to rust!  Brilliant!
