      About "Pile Driver"

      Lyrics for Stan Ridgway - "Pile Driver"

      There is a big click clack machine
      Whose engines don't pump gasoline
      It's a poundin' crazy arm that works all day
      It's run by all the people who
      Have got some blueprint plan to do
      So don't shake your head¨c¨cno, just nod and say "okay"

      And before I knew it, I got shoved in line
      Marchin' south in single file, and countin' off in time

      Chorus:
      (so, and) bring that pile driver over here and be quick
      We've got to dig a hole right now, so we can put in this stick
      We've got a hundred forty-seven done, we only got a day
      So bring that pile driver over here right away

      Now here's a big wide open space
      So wipe that smile right off your face
      And replace it now with a look of stern regard
      It's the early bird that gets the worm
      So what happens when the worm will learn
      It's the older ways for new we will discard

      And someone sent us this big machine that guarantees
      There'll be no argument at all when we're packin' one of these

      Chorus repeat

      But wait a minute
      Did you hear it cough
      This crazy arm
      We can't turn off
      It's rollin' round
      And diggin' down a mile
      Look out¨c¨cthis big machine
      Has gone hog wild!

      So look out, world, we're buildin' now
      When the hammer hits, the thumb says "ow!"
      Somewhere you know there's progress made
      One thing's for sure, we'll get our asphalt laid
      This big machine has run amuck
      And someone somewhere passed the buck
      So keep an ear out for that whistle call
      And duck when you see that wreckin' ball

      And hey, bob, don't light that match, we could explode
      I'll move some dirt while you block off the road

      Chorus repeat until fade
