Dozy Beaky Mick & Tich - Tonight Today
DOZY, BEAKY, MICK & TICH - TONIGHT TODAY

Everything flows in an endless stream
And if we close our eyes like a vision or a dream
We'll see this world in its myriad ways

Everything flows and every single minute
Brings a change to the earth and to everybody in it
Watch a million lives playing out their days

People at this very time are making many things
that's so, that's so
Money, Iím playing, some beg, some plan
The wise man understands, but fools are in command

In the desert rockets point towards the stars
In sleazy bars someone's getting drunk and ugly
On the city sidewalks hustlers pick their prey
Far away bodies bake on surfing beaches

Tonight, today, feel it all going on
All this moment's different strands of life
Tonight, today, we're a part of it all
Though we're on our own and making love

Everything flows while Nixon called a meeting
There's a massive demonstration
And some kids are getting beaten up in time
And made tomorrow's first edition

We have a striptease show, while at Buckingham Palace
They're working out the seating plan for Jackie and Onassis
And in Kalamazoo there's two boys fishing

People at this very time are making many things
that's so, that's so
Speeches and sailing-boats and scenes
While kids in faded jeans sit cross-legged in the park

In a Roman night-club Carlo stuffs his mouth
Further south Dino dines on left-out garbage
In a jungle hospital a mother sighs, baby cries
New arrival in the life-stream

Tonight (alright), today (donít you know that), feel it all going on
All this moment's different strands of life (well, tell me all about it)
Tonight (alright), today (donít you know that), we're a part of it all
Though we're on our own and making love (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Everything flows in an endless stream
And if we close our eyes like a vision or a dream
We'll see this world in its myriad ways

People at this very time are making many things
that's so, that's so
In the desert rockets point towards the stars
In sleazy bars someone's getting drunk and ugly
