All right, I saw the writing on the wall
All night, I saw the writing on the wall
I saw the writing on the wall

Lo and behold, heard it on the radio
It was a long time comin' but it sounds so sweet
Come on, man, get off my back

All right, I saw the writing on the wall
All night, I saw the writing on the wall
I saw the writing on the wall

In the Midwest, in the East
Canada, Southwest, around the world
L.A., Tokyo, sounds so sweet
Come on honey, get on your feet

All right, I saw the writing on the wall
All night, I saw the writing on the wall
I saw the writing on the wall

The words were oh, so
The words were oh, so clear

All right go, go

All right, I saw the writing on the wall
All night, I saw the writing on the wall

Lo and behold, I heard it on the radio
It was a long time comin' but it sounds so sweet
Come on, man, get off my back

Saw it at the airport, it was on TV
Read it in a magazine, runnin' down the street
Makes no sense but I hope it's gonna last
The next big thing, I really gotta laugh

Worked and slaved and played like hell
Everybody's goin' crazy, you're the last to know
Can't explain it, still a joke to me
Maybe I'm naive, 'cause it's so plain to see

It's right in front of your face, man
It's right in front of your face, man
Played like hell
Played like hell
