It Happened Today Lyrics

by REM

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, the choice

Closing 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
