A Day Such As This lyrics

Pere Ubu

[Part 1]

On a day such as this
Insist on more than the truth
H Y P E R B O L E

Today dear poet we must insist on more
More than the ordinary turn of phrase
Other than the usual stock in trade

A day such as this cries out for emphasis
Where are the thoughts that swing from the trees?
Where are the hats that hang in the breeze?
Where are the words that will freshen the air?

On a day such as this
Insist on more than the truth
H Y P E R B O L E

What is the designate etiquette on such a day?

[Part 2]

At last
By reasoning cast as a character peevishly bound
The solution comes clear
Persevere
I was nearly drowned

The folderol of fretful peregrination

It rained cats
It rained dogs It rained logs
It rained hats
It rained trees It rained fleas
It rained spats
It rained boxes to put it all in

The trumpet call of rampant exaggeration

With each ensuing sneeze
Raindrops shake from the leaves
They shake from the trees
They shake from the leaves
Of the sheltering trees

Grumbling over the goats they go
Mumbling into their coats they know
Bundling into the boats they row
Who knows where they go?
They go where they go where they go

The folderol of fretful peregrination

Yo-ho Oh-ho
If the rain doesn't stop
And the boxes pile up
Then we'll pass on the notion
To bail out the ocean with buckets
That's the word that's overheard

The trumpet call of rampant exaggeration
What is the designate etiquette on such a day?

[Part 3]

Some will say the feet
Some will say a dog
Some will say a man's best friend is hyperbole

What is the designate etiquette on such a day?
