Down To Earth Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Some people are just all show
Well, I dont mind that if the show is worth watching
But its all bark and no tree
Whats more ironic than a hippie in Versace?

Its all peace and love and limousines
You got the right message but the wrong intentions
How can you be touchy-feely when youve lost touch?
I think its time we had a little intervention with you

Hey now, wake up and lose the make-up
She makes you wanna know her
When you dont know what its worth
Now you really wanna show her
How shes just so down to earth via satellite

There's no better friends than the, the kind you pay
If they don't bow and scrape then the door will keep revolving
Its a tight circle of the chosen few
Well, howd you manage that? With the recipe involving

Just a pinch of sweetness and a cup of angst
Mix it all up, you're the all purpose flour
Though it looks delicious, something smells bad
I dont think Id last a half an hour with you

Hey now, wake up and lose the make-up
She makes you wanna know her
When you dont know what its worth
Now you really wanna show her
How shes just so down to earth via satellite

Whats it like to love you
When theres no one else above you?
And no one gets to know you
Well, wholl be there to show you via satellite?

Its like making love to a TV
Its kinda novel but its miles away from satisfying
Your hangers-on say its a great deal
But what youre selling, theres no chance in hell
That Ill be buying

Hey now, wake up and lose the make-up
She makes you wanna know her
When you dont know what its worth
Now you really wanna show her
How shes just so down to earth

She makes you wanna know her
When you dont know what its worth
Now you really wanna show her
How shes just so down to earth via satellite
