Lyrics:Certain People I Could Name

From This Might Be A Wiki
Certain People I Could Name
By: They Might Be Giants
Year: 1999

The few surviving samurai survey the battlefield Count the arms, the legs and heads, and then divide by five Drenched in blood, they move across the screen Do I need to point or do you see the one I mean?

The one in back The way he acts Is he reminding you Of anyone we know? Isn't he so Like certain people I could name?

Halfway through the 30 minutes, halfway 'round the world Here's the story on the genocidal overlord In her palace with her epaulettes Watch her little gestures as she lights her cigarette

Look at her, you Must see it too Is she reminding you Of anyone we know? Isn't she so Like certain people I could name?

Disembodied and detached, a voice describes the scene As a lizard stalks a helpless creature on TV Music underscores the tragedy Eyes with no expression watch the unsuspecting prey

Who is it like? Doesn't it strike You as the very image Of someone we know? Isn't it so Like certain people, How could anybody miss The obvious And the uncanny and The clear resemblance? Isn't it just Like certain people I could name?
