it happened today lyrics – r.e.m.

“it happened today”
(feat. eddie vedder and joel gibb)

this is not a parable
this is a terrible
this is a terrible thing

yes i will rhyme that after, after all i’ve done today
i have earned my wings

it happened today.
hooray! hooray!
it happened.
hip, hip, hooray!

we’ll leave the allegory to another bible story
out of deference, defiance and choice
and close in on a promise after, after all i’ve done today
i have earned my voice

it happened today.
hooray! hooray!
it happened.
hip, hip, hooray!
