When The World Is Running Down, You Make The Best Of What's Still Around (2003 Stereo Remastered Version)

When The World Is Running Down, You Make The Best Of What's Still Around (2003 Stereo Remastered Version)

The Police

Turn on my VCR
Same one I've had for years
James Brown on the T.A.M.I Show
Same tape I've had for years

I sit in my old car
Same one I've had for years
Old battery's running down
It ran for years and years

Turn on the radio
The static hurts my ears
Tell me where would I go
I ain't been out in years

Turn on the stereo
It's played for years and years
An Otis Redding song
It's all I own

When the world is running down
You make the best of what's still around
When the world is running down
You make the best of what's still around

Plug in my MCI
To exercise my brain
Make records on my own
Can't go out in the rain

Pick up the telephone
I've listened here for years
No one to talk to me
I've listened here for years

When the world is running down
You make the best of what's still around
When the world is running down
You make the best of what's still around

When I feel lonely here
Don't waste my time with tears
I run "Deep Throat" again
It ran for years and years

Don't like the food I eat
The cans are running out
Same food for years and years
I hate the food I eat

When the world is running down
You make the best of what's still around
When the world is running down
You make the best of what's still around

When the world is running down
You make the best of what's still around
When the world is running down
You make the best of what's still around, whoa

Turn on my VCR
Same one I've had for years
James Brown on the T.A.M.I Show
Same tape I've had for years

I sit in my old car
Same one I've had for years
