911 Is A Joke Lyrics – Duran Duran

Now I dialed nine one one a long time ago
Don’t you see how late they’re reactin’
They only come and they come when they wanna
So get the morgue truck and bag the goner
They don’t care ’cause they get paid anyway
They treat you like an ace that can’t be betrayed
I know you stumble with no use people
If your life is on the line then you’re dead today

Late comings with the late comin’ stretcher
That’s a body bag in disguise
y’all I’ll betcha
I call ’em body snatchers
quick they come to fetch you
with an autopsy ambulance
just to dissect ya

They are the kings ‘cos they swing amputation
Lose your arms your legs to them it’s compilation
I can prove it to you watch the rotation
It all adds up to a funky situation

So get up get get get down
911 is a joke in yo town
Get up get get get down
Late 911 wears the late crown

911 is a joke [Repeat]

Everyday they don’t never come correct
You can ask my man right here
with the broken neck
He’s a witness to the job never bein’ done
He would’ve been in full effect 911
They the token to your life when it’s croakin’
They need to be in a pawn shop on a
911 is a joke we don’t want ’em
I call a cab ’cause a cab will come quicker
The doctors huddle up and call a flea flicker
The reason that I say that ’cause they
Flick you off like fleas
They be laughin’ at ya
while you’re crawlin’ on our knees
And to the strength so go the length
Thinkin’ you are first when you really are tenth
You better wake up and smell the real flavor
Cause 911 is a fake life saver

[Repeat]

Ow, ow 911 is a joke

(Reach Up For The) Sunrise Lyrics – Duran Duran

Now the time has come
The music’s between us
Though the night seems young
Is at an end
Only change will bring
You out of the darkness
In this moment everything is born again

Reach up for the sunrise
Put your hands into the big sky
You can touch the sunrise
Feel the new day enter your life

Reach up for the sunrise
Put your hands into the big sky
You can touch the sunrise
Feel the new day enter your life

Now the fireball burns
We go round together
As the planet turns into the light
Something more than dreams to
Watch out for each other
Coz we know what it means to be alive

Reach up for the sunrise
Put your hands into the big sky
You can touch the sunrise
Feel the new day enter your life

Reach up for the sunrise
Put your hands into the big sky
You can touch the sunrise
Feel the new day enter your life

Feel the new day enter your life
Feel the new day

Reach up for the sunrise
Put your hands into the big sky
You can touch the sunrise
Feel the new day enter your life

Reach up for the sunrise
Put your hands into the big sky
You can touch the sunrise
Feel the new day enter your life

Reach up for the sunrise
Put your hands into the big sky
You can touch the sunrise
Feel the new day enter your life

Meet El Presidente Lyrics – Duran Duran

Miss November Tuesday,
Bend your rubber rules.
Take your time, but don’t take
Off your high heeled shoes.
She’s in demand at dinner time;
She’s on the factory wall.
And when the gentlemen retire
Guess who’s in control?
She blew your money
On taking a cruise.
If that isn’t funny,
Well, watch out teacher.

[CHORUS]
Ooh, ooh. When the chamber’s empty
She said ooh, ooh, Meet El Presidente.

Dressed in flimsy clothing,
Use your lipstick line
To colour fear and loathing
With a pink disguise.
You’ve never refused when she lies back
Put a stripe on the union; and a star on the jack.
She’s on the case at dinner time.
She’s on the evening news.
And if you dare step out of line
You’re going to be abused.
You may not like it;
You may not be scared.
But hell has no fury like a
Young girl’s ego.

[CHORUS]

Ooh, ooh. Doo, doo, doo.
You might adopt an attitude;
Look on the moral side.
But if police are after you,
Where’s the best place to hide?
For this production
They gave her a gun.
Ain’t no director–
So watch out actors!

[CHORUS (Repeat till finish)]

Ordinary World Lyrics – Duran Duran

Came in from a rainy Thursday
On the avenue
Thought I heard you talking softly

I turned on the lights, the TV
And the radio
Still, I can’t escape the ghost of you

What has happened to it all?
Crazy, some’d say
Where is the life that I recognize?
Gone away

But I won’t cry for yesterday
There’s an ordinary world
Somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way
To the ordinary world
I will learn to survive

Passion or coincidence
Once prompted you to say
“Pride will tear us both apart”
Well now pride’s gone out the window
Cross the rooftops
Run away
Left me in the vacuum of my heart

What is happening to me?
Crazy, some’d say
Where is my friend when I need you most?
Gone away

But I won’t cry for yesterday
There’s an ordinary world
Somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way
To the ordinary world
I will learn to survive

Papers in the roadside
Tell of suffering and greed
Here today, forgot tomorrow
Ooh, here besides the news
Of holy war and holy need
Ours is just a little sorrowed talk

And I don’t cry for yesterday
There’s an ordinary world
Somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way
To the ordinary world
I will learn to survive

Every one
Is my world, I will learn to survive
Any one
Is my world, I will learn to survive
Any one
Is my world
Every one
Is my world
