      About "Newspapers"

      Lyrics for Stan Ridgway - "Newspapers"

      I work for the newspapers
      Any news is good news I always say
      But I don't write no daily column
      Talk is cheap and so is my pay.

      And when my work days over
      I pocket five or ten from the tray
      And then I start up again at five am
      I stack 'em up just to throw 'em away.

      Now lately I've been thinking
      What would the world do without the news
      You wouldn't know when wars were started
      Or when they ended, win or lose.

      It probably be a better world to live in
      But the question would be who's?
      And what side your on or who's right or wrong
      You'd never have to choose.

      Some times late at night
      I get to see the streets like no one else can
      There's a lot of things going on here
      That even newspapers don't understand.

      Some people got too much money
      Some rob with a gun or a ballpoint pen
      Maybe I'll get me a big black cape
      And then they'll be running from me,
      Looking over their shoulder for me.

      Once there in the back pages
      Was on the front just yesterday
      And old news never dies
      No, they say it just fades away

      Crime and murder
      Business and politics
      And International strife
      It's all the same, find some one to blame
      It's there in black and white.
