by Jack Buchanan, Oscar Levant & Nanette Fabray
Lyrics and Meaning


Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
A police car and a screaming siren
A pneumatic drill and ripped up concrete
A baby wailing and stray dog howling
The screech of brakes and lamp lights blinking, I say that's entertainment.
Verse 2
That's entertainment
Verse 3
A smash of glass and the rumble of boots
An electric train and a ripped up 'phone booth
Paint splattered walls and the cry of a tomcat
Lights going out and a kick in the balls, I say that's entertainment.
Verse 4
That's entertainment
Verse 5
Days of speed and slow time Mondays
Pissing down with rain on a boring Wednesday
Watching the news and not eating your tea
A freezing cold flat and damp on the walls, I say that's entertainment.
Verse 6
That's entertainment
Verse 7
Waking up at 6 a.m. on a cool warm morning
Opening the windows and breathing in petrol
An amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard
Watching the tele and thinking about your holidays, that's entertainment.
Verse 8
That's entertainment
Verse 9
Waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes
Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume
A hot summer's day and sticky black tarmac
Feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were faraway, that's entertainment.
Verse 10
That's entertainment
Verse 11
Two lovers kissing amongst the scream of midnight
Two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude
Getting a cab and traveling on buses
Reading the graffiti about slashed seat affairs,I say that's entertainment.
Verse 12
That's entertainment
