"First Week/Last Week...Carefree" as written by and David Byrne....
Can we run that again
Is that a woman's voice I hear?
I said, "Let's wait and see. I'll see for myself"
That's a phrase I repeat
To myself
Made a reference to me and
that's myself too

What progress I have made the first week
First Week
First Week
First Week

Every sentence I use
Refer to women and their names
I heard the voice first last week
I heard it myself
Made a reference to me
That's myself
This report's incomplete
I see for myself

Every appointment has been moved to last week
Last Week
Last Week
Last Week

Oh
Ah
Oh

I heard the voice first last week
I heard it myself
Made a reference to me
And that's myself
This report's incomplete
I see for myself

Every appointment has been been moved to last week
Last week
Last week
Last week

Oh
Ah
Oh

    General CommentI have no idea what this song is about but it grows on me all the time. I think it might be about the recording/creative process.

    General CommentSounds like a detached, abstract view of somebody's first week on a new job. Some of these songs seem like they are about an artist or an otherwise extremely creative (or even psychotic) person inhabiting the everyday world.
