N.E.W.S. Lyrics

by Golden Earring

N.E.W., N.E.W., N.E.W.S.
North, East, West and South
Read all about it, read all about it, news

I wanna know about the weather tomorrow
I wanna know what happened today
I wanna feel that Im a part of the games
That all the other people play

I mean, being in touch with the actual thing
No matter how amazing
Oh, I turn on my radio, switch on my TV
Open a paper and a magazine

Lets see what they got, lets see what they got
Lets see what they got to upset me
Its pitiful, shameful, all I hear and read and see
Four directions of the wind and a four-way misery

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Well, once upon a time I was a sailor man
Curious about my destiny
So I sailed away on a ship of slaves
The rest, as you know, is history

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Theres gotta be a lesson for you and me, I mean everybody
How come we never seem to learn
From the things that we all study, let me hear you say

North, Scandinavia, Alaska, Siberia
East, Japan, China and India
West, Europe and the US of America
South, Australia, South America, South Africa

Spell it out, N E, Who, me?
Yeah, you, double you and S for South
Jungle drum, word of mouth

Were gonna get it together, were gonna work it out
Were gonna get it together, work it out, work it out
So I turn on my radio, switch on my TV
Open a paper and a magazine

Lets see what they got, lets see what they got
Lets see what they got to update me
Its pitiful, shameful, all I hear and read and see
Four directions of the wind and a four-way misery

North, East, West
Were gonna get it together, were gonna work it out
Were gonna get it together, work it out, work it out

Yeah, yeah, yeah
