David Byrne — His Wife Refused lyrics

A great big house- with nothing in it
He comes home says "now wait a minute"
He's comin' in she's goin' out
He turns around says, "what's that about? "

Do what they like, the kid's in school
Think she don't know, now, who's kidding who?
He turns around says "who wants to know? "
Open the door and there's nobody home!

Go ahead- fill their heads
Go ahead- fill their heads with poison
Take a look- these people are savages!
Take a look- at their misfortune

I'm goin up I got a message
I'm gonna wait till I close the door
I'm gonna wrap, myself in blankets
I'm gonna, roll out, across the floor

Well the bride bride and the groom
Run in a circle around their house
They're goin' out they're comin' in
Inside a circle around their house

These shoes don't fit- this tie don't match
I'm gonna throw it away when I get home.
I'm turned around I'm doin' my best
I'm gonna wait until the light comes on.

Yes he's the king and she's the queen
Run in a circle around their house.
Open the door and let them in
Inside a circle around their house.
