Everything happening
At the turn of the century.
I'm gonna buy myself a time machine
Go to the turn of the century.
And all those people passing by
And the town crier makes his cry
At the turn of the century,
Turn of the century.

Big wide hats and men is spats
At the turn of the century.
With those horseless carriages
At the turn of the century.
And there are lots of things to do
On a bicycle built for two
At the turn of the century,
Turn of the century.

Everything happening
At the turn of the century.
I'm gonna buy myself a time machine
Go to the turn of the century.
And all those people passing by
And the town crier makes his cry
At the turn of the century,
Turn of the century.
Turn of the century.

    My OpinionI'd have had my hand thwacked with a ruler if I'd presented that in primary school.
    Like most of their early songs, colourful melodically, great orch pop arrangement, a great analogue sound plus the unique brotherly vocal blend but... gaping lyrical emptiness... which would be funny if it weren't so categorically crap.

    "Everything happening"? Like what?
    According to the Bee Gees... town criers, men wearing spats and big wide hats, horseless carriages, people passing buy and tandems.

    The reference to Brass Era automobiles places it as the 19th to 20th century "turn" at which point Town Criers had been out of business for at least a hundred years.

    "Lots of things to do on a bicycle made for two"? Like what? This isn't divulged.

    Then there are the wide hats and spats and more people "passing by" and... that's your lot.
    "Everything Happening"? Whatever that might have been, don't come here for enlightenment.
