Model Beirut Recital

This song is by John Cale and appears on the album Caribbean Sunset (1984).

When they grow up, the silly people who will run the world
When I'm thinking of the silly men
People trying to run the world
Something must be done about it
Something must be done right now
'Bout the silly people trying to run the world

And I hear them call out my name when I run run
Then I hear them call out my name when I run
When I run, when I run, when I run run

But something must be done about it
Something must be done right now
About all the people trying to run the world
And they are whistling in the dark
I'm whistling for a friend
Whistling in the dark again

And we all fall down
And we all fall down
And we all fall down
And we all fall down
In a Modern Beirut Recital
In Model Beirut again
Modern Beirut Recital
Modern Beirut Recital
Again

The lady beggar hear them in the street
They're gonna break down the doors
They'll knock knock
Well, something must be done about it
About the silly people trying to break down my door
They break down the door
They break down the door
They break down the door

Whistling in the dark
I'm whistling for a friend
Whistling in the dark again

All fall down ...

Modern Beirut Recital
Model Beirut again

And we all fall down ...

Model Beirut again
