"A Wonderful Day in a One-Way World" as written by and Peter Gabriel....
Saturday is shopping day
I drive my car but there's no place to park it
No respect for superman in supermarket
I guess there must be trouble but I not been alerted
Looking round the store it was all deserted and I'm
Stranded here with my empty basket
So full of question got nowhere to ask it

By the one way out
Strange voice shout
"Don't let that good man out!"

"Have a wonderful day in our one-way world
One way, one day
Have a wonderful day in our one-way world
One way, one day
One-way man
One-way mind
Get along with mankind"

Oh, there's an old man on the floor, so I summon my charm
I say "Hey Scumbag, has there been an alarm?"
He said "Yeh, 'been selling off eternal youth
They all got afraid 'cause I'm the living proof
My name is Einstein do you know time is a curve?"
I said "Stop old man! you got a nerve
'Cause there's only one rule that I observe
Time is money and money I serve"

By the one way out
Strange voice shout
"Don't let that good man out"

"Have a wonderful day in our one-way world
One way, one day
Have a wonderful day in our one way world
One way, one day
One-day man
One-day mind
Get along with mankind"

    General CommentThis song is about Peter Gabriel, formerly a famous star in Genesis, and the almost instantanious anonimity he experianced when he began his solo career.

    'No respect for superman in supermarket'.

    General CommentThat second verse of seriously funny. I can't stop giggling when I hear it!

    As I can tell, it's about a trip to the supermarket. No one is at the supermarket except one person, who is apparently Albert Einstein. He says no one is there because they all got scared away after seeing living proof of eternal youth- apparently they were selling it? Very weird song. :D But as I said, it makes me laugh, so it can't be bad! I don't understand how the title lyric fits in to it, though.
