Random fact about song
With lyrics like "Check out Mr. Businessman, he bought some wild, wild life; On the way to the stock exchange, he got some wild, wild life," the Talking Heads remind us that they took satire and social commentary back from punk rock and repackaged it in new wave drag. In the book Avant Rock - Experimental Music From Beatles to Bjork by Bill Martin, Martin argues, "If punk was in part the music of the outcast ne'er-do-well, new wave of the Talking Heads variety was the revenge of the nerds. Much punk eschewed, supposedly, any aspect of 'performance' - this is just me and my authentic rage! David Byrne went the opposite route, toward unabashed self-consciousness. Of course, that is performative as well, but part of what made Talking Heads so refreshing was the anti-attitude attitude: 'I am doing this, and I know that I am doing this.'"

Wild Wild Life lyrics:


I'm wearing fur pyjamas
I ride a hot Potato
It's tickling my fancy
Speak up, I can't hear you

Here on this mountaintop
I got some wild, wild life
I got some news to tell ya
About some wild, wild life

Here comes the doctor in charge
She's got some wild, wild life
Ain't that the way you like it?
Living wild, wild life.

I wrestle, with your conscience
You wrestle, with your partner
Sittin' on a window sill
But he spends time behind closed doors

Check out Mr. Businessman
He bought some wild, wild life
On the way to the stock exchange
He got some wild, wild life

Break it up when he opens the door
He's doin' wild, wild life
I know that's the way you like it
Living wild, wild life

Peace of mind?
It's a piece of cake!
Thought control!
You get on board anytime you like

Like sitting on pins and needles
Things fall apart, it's scientific

Sleeping on the interstate
Getting wild, wild life
Checkin' in, a checkin' out!
I got a wild, wild life

Spending all of my money and time
Done too much wild, wild
We wanna go, where we go, where we go
I doing wild, wild

I know it, that's how we start
Got some wild, wild life
Take a picture, here in the daylight
And it's a wild, wild life

You've grown so tall, you've grown so fast
Wild, wild
I know that's the way you like it
Living wild wild wild wild, life
