Electric Guitar

This song is by Talking Heads and appears on the album Fear of Music (1979).

Electric guitar gets run over by a car on the highway
This is a crime against the state
This is the meaning of life

To tune this electric guitar
To tune this electric guitar
To tune this electric guitar
To tune this electric guitar

An electric guitar is brought in to a court of law
The judge and the jury, twelve members of the jury
All listening to records
This is a crime against the state
This is the verdict they reach

Never listen to electric guitar
Never listen to electric guitar
Never listen to electric guitar
Never listen to electric guitar

Electric guitar is copies, the copy sounds better
Call this the law of justice, call this freedom and liberty
I thought I perjure myself, right in front of the jury
Is this a crime against the state? No
This is the verdict they reach

Someone controls electric guitar
Someone controls electric guitar
Someone controls electric guitar
Someone controls electric guitar
