thats entertainment lyrics – jam

a police car and a screaming siren –
a pneumatic drill and ripped up concrete –
a baby wailing and stray dog howling –
the screech of brakes and lamp light blinking –

that’s entertainment.

a smash of gl*ss and a rumble of boots –
an electric train and a ripped up ‘phone booth –
paint splattered walls and the cry of a tomcat –
lights going out and a kick in the b*lls –

that’s entertainment.

days of speed and slow time mondays –
p*ssing down with rain on a boring wednesday –
watching the news and not eating your tea –
a freezing cold flat and damp on the walls –

that’s entertainment.

waking up at 6 a.m. on a cool warm morning –
opening the windows and breathing in petrol –
an amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard –
watching the tele and thinking about your holidays –

that’s entertainment.

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 –
fedding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away –

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 slashed seat affairs –

that’s entertainment.
