It Happens 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, and choice.

And close in on a promise
after all I've done today
I have earned my voice

It happened today. Hooray! Hooray!
It happened. Hip, hip, hooray!

Oh...
