​Weep Day

This song is by They Might Be Giants and appears on the compilation album Then: The Earlier Years (1997).

I never went to the tropical island
Though everybody said they saw me there
And it wasn't me you punched a hole in
At the West German protest march

Simultaneous events don't happen
We are isolated temporally
And a part is never called a whole thing
Though it bothers it to know it's so

Every man is made of two opinions
Every woman has a second half
And it's Samba time for Tambo and Weep Day for Urine Man
(Samba time for Tambo and Weep Day for Urine Man)
Yes it's Samba time for Tambo and Weep Day for Urine Man
(Samba time for Tambo and Weep Day for Urine Man)

I didn't write the words you hear me singing (Didn't write the words you hear me singing)
I didn't sing the line before this one (Didn't sing the line before this one)
You were not the one I was addressing (You were not the one I was addressing)
That person took a train to Africa (Africa)

Where he met the consulate from Belgium
Who is now a hermit in a cave
Who is pitching for the Oakland Raiders
Striking out the batter she became

Every man is made of two opinions
Every woman has a second half
And it's Samba time for Tambo and Weep Day for Urine Man
(Samba time for Tambo and Weep Day for Urine Man)
Yes it's Samba time for Tambo and Weep Day for Urine Man
(Samba time for Tambo and Weep Day for Urine Man) (x2)
Weep Day for Urine Man (x3)
Weep Day (x6)
Weep
