telegraph lyrics – omd

i’ve got a telegraph in my hand
words on paper, written in sand

we’ve got telegraph
(we’ve got telegraph)
right ‘cross this land
(across this land)

it doesn’t mean a d*mn thing
we don’t understand
but who needs telegraph anyway?

i’ve got a telegraph
(i’ve got a telegraph)
in my hand
(in my hand)

words on paper
(words on paper)
written in sand
(written in sand)

we’ve got telegraph
(we’ve got telegraph)
right across this land
(across this land)

it doesn’t mean a d*mn thing
(it doesn’t mean a d*mn thing)
we don’t understand
(we never understand)

god’s got a telegraph on his side, on his side
it makes him powerful, gives him pride, [incomprehensible]
even in america, god bless america

they’ll understand
(they’ll understand)
the value of the telegraph
(the value of the telegraph)
hand in hand
(hand in hand)
