"Warning Sign" as written by and David Byrne....
Warning sign, warning sign
I hear but I pay it no mind
Hear my voice, hear my voice
It's saying something and it's not very nice

Pay attention, pay attention
Hope you're through you and I hope you're concentrating
I've got money now, I've got money now
C'mon baby, c'mon baby

Warning sign of things to come
It happened before, it will happen again
Hear my voice, move my hair
I move it around a lot but I don't care

What I remember? Baby remember? What I remember?
What is it?
What I remember? Baby remember? What I remember?
What is it?

Warning sign, warning sign
Look at my hair, I like the design
It's the truth, it's the truth
Your glassy eyes and your open mouth

Take it easy baby, take it easy
It's a natural thing and you have to relax
I've got money now, I've got money now
C'mon baby, c'mon baby

Warning sign of things to come, turn me over, turn me over
Love is here but I guess it's gone now, hurry up babe, hurry up
Hear my voice, move my hair
I move it around a lot but I don't care

What I remember? Baby remember? What I remember?
What is it?
What I remember? Baby remember? What I remember?
Yeah, what is it?

What I remember? Baby remember? What I remember?
What I remember? Baby remember? What I remember?
What I remember? Baby remember? What I remember?
What I remember? Baby remember? What I remember?

    General CommentJust a wonderfully bizarre and scary song. I like the warble effect they put on DB's mic.

    General CommentI really don't know.

    I do love this song, though; it's one my favorites, just for how the ending makes me feel.

    General CommentThis song is about a man who has lost a relationship due to money going to his head once before and is now about to make the same mistake again despite the warning from his conscience.

    General Commentwhen i think of this song i think of the awesome bass line.
    and then the rhythm of the drums and bass together.
    the little guitar sounds are cool on top.
    voice is last... i think maybe the lyrics are describing thoughts that pop into your mind... anxiety offset by financial security perhaps? the banality of haircuts?
    love it!
