Moving Pictures

Ray Davies, released on Low Budget, © Davray Music Ltd. 1979

.

Life is only a moving picture

Nothing in life is a permanent fixture

Oh no oh oh no

.

Black girls, white girls oh what a mixture

Looking as pretty as a picture

Oh no oh oh no

.

We live, we die no one knows why

We come, we go we see the show

And it's always moving, always moving

Life is only a moving picture

.

Oh, life can sometimes not be very nice

But then you make your choice so you must pay the price

You take the good and bad 'cos life's all work and play

And it soon fades away

Oh no oh oh no

.

Life is only what you make out

So make the verses rhyme and all the pieces fit

There isn't any time to make much sense of it

It soon fades away

Oh no oh oh no

.

Life is only a moving picture

Nothing in life is a permanent fixture

Oh no oh oh no

.

We live, we die no one knows why

We come, we go we see the show

And it's always moving, always moving

Look at all those moving pictures

Nothing in life is a permanent fixture

Oh no oh oh no

.

It's only moving, only moving, only moving pictures

.
