The Wombats – Good Idea at the Time Lyrics

The Wombats – Good Idea at the Time Lyrics

Get some of that make up on
And tell me what could go wrong
In a city that’s built on water and stilts

You can bounce me off the tide
Watch me as a subdivide
Into a masked parade
Where I can be led astray

Why’ve you got to analyze it?
Why’ve you got to analyze it?

And some don’t come back from here
It costs money just to disappear
It costs money just to take it on the chin
To detune the violin

It’s not sleep that I need
I want to let off a little steam
In a city that knows
A few things we don’t

Why’ve you got to analyze it?
Why’ve you got to analyze it?
I just want to forget about it

Why’ve you got to analyze it?
Why’ve you got to analyze it?
I just want to forget about it

I didn’t mean to wage a war
I didn’t mean to start a fight
It was a good idea at the time

I’ve seen fog like this before
I guess I should have read the signs
It was a good idea at the time

I didn’t mean to wage a war
I didn’t mean to start a fight
It was a good idea at the time

And you can try and shut the door
But nothing ever gets left behind
It was a good idea at the time

Why’ve you got to analyze it?
Why’ve you got to analyze it?
Why’ve you got to analyze it?
It was a good idea at the time

Why’ve you got to analyze it?
Why’ve you got to analyze it?
Why’ve you got to analyze it?
It was a good idea at the time

Why’ve you got to analyze it?
Why’ve you got to analyze it?
Why’ve you got to analyze it?
It was a good idea at the time

Why’ve you got to analyze it?
Why’ve you got to analyze it?
Why’ve you got to analyze it?
It was a good idea at the time

Why’ve you got to analyze it?
Why’ve you got to analyze it?
Why’ve you got to analyze it?
It was a good idea at the time

I just want to forget about it
I just want to forget about it
I just want to forget about it
It was a good idea at the time
