"It's Gonna Be" as written by Bryon Glynne Jones, Jonathan Glynne Jones, Raymond Peter Medhurst and Robin Albert Smith....
If all we talk about is money
Nothing will be funny, honey
And now that everyone's a critic
It's makin' my mascara runny
If we only talk about the "Heathers"
Making it together, is crazy
If we don't get a new situation
For our busted nation, we're lazy

But it's gonna be
It's gonna be
Please make it be
It's gonna be

Now if a princess becomes human
Don't stone her on a talk show, you'll ruin
Cause there's a fine line between a skewer
And a decent sense of humor
Aim at the ones who've really hurt us
They should be arrested for murders
But then all the cameras were turned on
Some skinny naked blond eating burgers

But it's gonna be
It's gonna be
It's gonna be
It's gonna be

It's gonna be
It's gonna be
Please make it be
Let's make it be

It's gonna be
It's gonna be
It's gonna be
Be, be, be, be

    General CommentThis is the fastest paced one from the album, i really enjoy this "new side" of Norah Jones, if anyone out there still feels the need to call her a bore and very melanchol then they should turn up this song and pay attention.

    General CommentAnd it is actually
    "And now that everyone's a critic it's making my mascara runny"
    and also it's
    "if only talk about 'the heathers' making it together is crazy"
    I know the Heather's is a movie but i don't really get the reference,
    Maybe it just rhymed,,
    ?

    General CommentPerhaps you had a different version, but I hear the lyrics differently.

    It should be:

    If all we talk about is money
    Nothing will be funny honey
    Now that everyone's a critic
    It's making my mascara runny
    If we only talk about the Heathers
    Making it together is crazy
    If we don't get a new situation for our busted nation,
    We're lazy

    It's gonna be
    It's gonna be
    Please make it be
    It's gonna be

    Now if a princess becomes human
    Don't stone her on a talk show
    You'll ruin
    'Cause there's a fine line between a skewer
    And a decent sense of humor
    And all the ones who really hurt us
    They should be arrested for murders
    And then all the cameras were turned on to
    Some skinny naked blonde eating burgers

    It's gonna be
    It's gonna be
    It's gonna be
    It's gonna be

    It's gonna be
    It's gonna be
    Please make it be
    Make it be

    It's gonna be x3

    The Heathers reference is to the movie where these pretty and wealthy but messed up girls waste their lives and create all sorts of drama in the lives of others and in their own. I think she's using this to say that our culture spends a lot of time giving the Paris' and Lindsays and Britneys of the world too much attention. We concern ourselves with such trivial trash when we should be focusing on more important issues.
    I think the second verse is just a comment on how our society is obsessed with image and weight and food.
    The song itself is her way of saying look at the condition of our society.Letting ourselves be constantly concerned with the state of the economy or our body image or the lives of others isn't getting us anywhere. We need more positive, intelligent images and thoughts because otherwise, we're just sucking the joy out of life.

    General Commenti think it is

    Aim at the ones who really hurt
    they should be arrested for murders.

    General Commenti thought it was "weather" and not heather's. and I thought this was about our economy, debt, corrupt politics, and television propaganda.
