"People" as written by William Scott Bruford, Robert Fripp, Trey Gunn, Anthony Charles Levin, Pat Mastelotto and Adrian Belew....
People fly people flee
People clam and say "it wasn't me"
People fish people beef
People arm to teeth

Yes, you've got people on the tube
Walking on the moon
People at the bottom of the sea
People in tombs

People in igloos
Even a tribe of pygmies

People are the main spring
Turning the world around
People, they're the main spring
Spinning this world upside down

People sun people toast
People tire shile other people smoke
People bowl people rock
People pay to see two people box

Watch me face me
Dress me baby me
Phone me wire me
House me bug me fire me

People are the main spring
Spinning the world around
People, they're the main spring
Turning this world inside out

    General CommentA rockin' good tune, but also, very real. That some of us would pay to watch
    each other other box is treated as equal to some of us living in igloos, is amusing.
