They Might Be Giants Celebration Lyrics

First, the DJ must power up the amplifiers.

To play a record, select an album and put it on the turntable.

The racer must attach five dollars to their car and drive to the DJ booth.

Signal the DJ by ringing the bell.

I see that Banksy left a Post-it note for Anonymous, for Anonymous

It seems the after-party has been moved to your house, to your house

It’s a special night of anticipation

The moonbeams strong on the old Bandshell

Celebration

You’re a little bit better and ready for some

Celebration

Some time to get louder and not by yourself

I see that someone left their cheat sheet by this microphone, by this microphone

I think the rock ‘n roll girls in this world want apologies, want apologies

I read this stuff, but I don’t believe it

I’d change it ’round, but I don’t know how

Celebration

You’re a little bit better and ready for some

Celebration

Some time to get louder and not by yourself

Perpetrators of invisible crimes

Our only magistrate sits in our minds

The audience cheers as some people attack

The secret smile of security guards

You hear the cataclysmic discharge of the optimist, of the optimist

And the unlikely crowd assembled here’s like Hieronymus, Bosch Hieronymus

It’s hard to see from this elevation

But looking up, you can set it off

Celebration

You’re a little bit better and ready for some

Celebration

Some time to get louder and not by yourself
