THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT (THE JAM)

A police car and a screaming siren
Pneumatic drill and ripped-up concrete
A baby wailing, stray dog howling
A screech of brakes, a lamp light blinking

That's entertainment
That's entertainment

A smash of glass and a rumble of boots
Electric train and a ripped-up phone booth
Paint-splattered walls and the cry of a tomcat
Lads going out - and a kick in the balls
I said :

That's entertainment
That's entertainment

La, la, la ...

Days of speed, and slow-time Mondays
Pissing down with rain on boring Wednesdays
Watching the news and not eating your tea
A freezing cold flat and damp on the walls
I say :

That's entertainment
That's entertainment

Waking up at 6 A.M. on a cool warm morning
Opening the windows and brea thing in petrol
An amateur band rehearse in a nearby yard
Watching the telly and thinking 'bout your holidays

That's entertainment
That's entertainment

La, la, la ...

Waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes
Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume
A hot summer's day, and sticky black tarmac
Feeding ducks in the park, and wishing you were far away

That's entertainment
That's entertainment

Two lovers kissing amongst the scream of midnight
Two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude
Getting a cab and travelling on buses
Reading the graffiti about slash-seat affairs
I say :

That's entertainment
That's entertainment

La, la, la ...
