"Warnings Moving Clockwise" by Do-Re-Mi


"Warnings Moving Clockwise" by Do-Re-Mi lyrics

(thanks to corrections sent in by Richard Fitzpatrick)
"I also heard Helen Carter a few times - apparently it's a song about the missiles coming in just after Moscow pushed the button..."

Warnings Moving Clockwise

That dog is vicious with a smile on his face
can be rough-shod and mobile, or well-bred as lace
and Peter's crying wolf, this week he's eating from the streets
with one shoe on, with one shoe off, he's crawling on his feet

      And there's warnings moving clockwise in my direction
      Wake up yawning just in time to cushion the blow
      There's a buzz alarm at sunrise, it wants my attention
      But my legs are pins and needles and my fingers are slow
      Too slow...

Changed my religion and I look to the east
and I check my local papers for the mark of the beast
It's the trumpets above me that disturb me the least
'til my logical thinking is illogically ceased

      And there's warnings moving clockwise in my direction
      Wake up yawning just in time to cushion the blow
      There's a buzz alarm at sunrise, it wants my attention
      But my legs are pins and needles and my fingers are slow
      Too slow...

My friend is happy, she moves to the breeze
and she devotes her energies to saving the trees
while I think of people dying on their knees
while we're two of the millions more ignoring their pleas

      And there's warnings moving clockwise in my direction
      Wake up yawning just in time to cushion the blow
      There's a buzz alarm at sunrise, it wants my attention
      But my legs are pins and needles and my fingers are slow
      Too slow...

My hands are steady and I look to the skies
and I ask for a messenger who never replies
I see jets over jordan, and tears in the eyes
of a people who weather while society lies

      And there's warnings moving clockwise in my direction
      Wake up yawning just in time to cushion the blow
      There's a buzz alarm at sunrise, it wants my attention
      But my legs are pins and needles and my fingers are slow
      Too slow...


Old incorrect chorus had:

        While there's warnings moving clockwise in my direction
        Wake up yawning just in time to push in the blow
        There's a muzzle arm at sunrise, it wants my attention
        But my legs are pins and needles and my fingers are slow
        Too slow...
