Electric Light Orchestra - Ain't It A Drag Lyrics




How many times can you go through the thing
Just when you think it's cool, the shit hits the fan

Tomorrow brings the same old sun, but never shown our way
Ain't it a drag babe, ain't it a drag babe, oh what a drag babe
You're telling me, you're telling me

I took the last pane out just to see the pretty view
Try to hold on to the edge, to see what you would do

Tomorrow brings the same old sun, but never shown our way
Ain't it a drag babe, ain't it a drag babe, Oh what a drag babe
You're telling me, you're telling me

You go your way, and I go mine
We'll never meet, until the next time

Tomorrow brings the same old sun, but never shown our way
Ain't it a drag babe, ain't it a drag babe, oh what a drag babe
You're telling me, you're telling me

(Ain't it a drag, ain't it a drag)
Ain't it a drag (ain't it a drag)
Ain't it a drag (ain't it a drag)
Ain't it a drag (ain't it a drag)

Electric Light Orchestra Ain't It A Drag Comments
  1. Roy Patton

    This song has to be a Traveling Wilburys leftover.

  2. DJasonBolt

    Love this song. Very Wilbury-esque.

  3. Марк Шонбергер

    Mr. Lynne every single song you belt out has such an uplift. Thanks!

  4. Gerardo Palomo Rodriguez

    Fantastico. Amo a ELO. SIGUEN SIENDO VANGUARDIA

  5. Clued up UK Patriot

    The head vs the heart....till that happens the next time....Yes or no....

  6. Antonio Ferreira

    How many times can you go through the pain
    Just when you think it's cool, the shit hits the fan

    Tomorrow brings the same old sun, but never shone our way
    Ain't it a drag babe, ain't it a drag babe, oh what a drag babe
    You're telling me, you're telling me

    I took the last plane out just to see the pretty view
    Try to hold on to the edge, to see what you would do

    Tomorrow brings the same old sun, but never shone our way
    Ain't it a drag babe, ain't it a drag babe, oh what a drag babe
    You're telling me, you're telling me

    You go your way, and I go mine
    We'll never meet, until the next time

    Tomorrow brings the same old sun, but never shone our way
    Ain't it a drag babe, ain't it a drag babe, oh what a drag babe
    You're telling me, you're telling me

    (Ain't it a drag, ain't it a drag)
    Ain't it a drag (ain't it a drag)
    Ain't it a drag (ain't it a drag)
    Ain't it a drag (ain't it a drag)

  7. Benedito Dias Rodrigues

    Jeff Lynne's ELO should be include this song in their tour!!!

  8. eli samurai

    I just realized something he said a bad word thats a first

    Jude Oldman

    He says the same word in Easy Money. In fact, in Oh No Not Susan he drops an F bomb

  9. dwhollrah

    ...the Petty period.

  10. kurtmorr

    has a Traveling Wilbury's flavor.

  11. Максим Юрьевич

    Нет альтернативы E.L.O. Также,как и Beatls. Так же ,как и некоторым представителем того времени арт-рока..

  12. Nerdus Maximus

    I had no idea this was from 2 years ago.

  13. Jordan Madick

    any new album in the works

    NightIsRight

    Yes it came from Out of Nowhere

  14. Максим Юрьевич

    Очередной шедевр от Джеффа

  15. starfiremale

    The Lynne magic is all over this track, he's still got it in spades!!

  16. kejola1969

    How many times can you go through the thing

    Tomorrow brings the same old sun, but never shown our way
    Ain't it a drag babe, ain't it a drag babe, oh what a drag babe
    You're telling me, you're telling me

    I took the last pane out just to see the pretty view
    Try to hold on to the edge, to see what you would do

    Любимая песня

  19. 두한김

    Best Music Video

  20. Bandito

    only 17 👎. thats when you know a song is really good.

  21. Chris B

    What a great song from a musical genius. It reminds me of the Traveling Wilburys. Maybe George, Tom and Roy will be singing along in Heaven. We're rapidly running out of living legends. We need you Jeff, to save us from all the modern rubbish that's out there nowadays.

  22. Sebastián Rosales

    This should have more views!!! Fuck you Reggaetón, Fuck you Despacito, THIS IS MUSIC! ❤

  23. John Smith

    good thing femenists dont know about elo

    Slayer of guys 1996

    Steven Nesfeder yeah or liberals in general

  24. Radio FM Space

    Discovery and Alone In The Universe......the best albums from ELO.........thank you for the music Jeff !!! Kind regards from Buenos Aires - Argentina

    Slayer of guys 1996

    My favorite albums’ are “out of the blue” and “mr. blue sky” I know they are compilation albums but they still have “livin thing” and “mr. blue sky”

  25. Наталья Николаева

    Да это просто нажать и слушать где все???????????????

  26. elofan54

    Not quite vintage ELO bur better than 99% of the crap out now

    Slayer of guys 1996

    What does “bur” mean

  27. ??? Eagle

    the intro is on point!

  28. ??? Eagle

    Best song

  29. laughinsohard

    ELO is taking the first step at bringing this style of music back. Maybe soon, we'll be hearing popular songs like this again.

  30. Sergio Alvarado

    Only 976 likes? ¿What´s wrong with you people?

  31. Lorkhanable

    I can't decide between this song and One Step at a Time being my favorite song on this record.

  32. Brandon Fernandoy

    I love this song!

  33. Manuel Chirivella

    no me canso de escucharla, me gusta

  34. Manuel Chirivella

    temazo de los buenos ,que continue asi

  35. Volker Paulsen

    Adored Jeff Lynne for decades, so very iconic!

    crewBackfire

    I agree! Обожаемый во всём мире!!!

  36. Alexis VDF

    Excelente. Tiene un poquito de Xanadú. Bueno, todo el estilo de ELO...

  37. Montana Dan

    Not one of Jeff's best songs. I hope he didn't spend more than five minutes on it.

  38. Juan Pablo

    Jeff, we are waiting for you in Latin America.

  39. Michael Norman

    Congratulations on the HOF nomination! Long overdue!

    Michael Norman

    Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction! :)

  40. Chuck the Chicken

    Does anyone notice the illuminati symbol at the bottom at the tv?

    bogi1

    That's the lightbulb from the album ELO I with an eye in it

    John Smith

    bogi1 theres also a triangle under it. Also for confused readers, the album ELO is No Answer in the US due to miscommunications

    Timo Kuusisto

    And of course the black and white floor

  41. Julian Isaac

    el corazon de Dynamo

  42. Satria Yusuf

    keep moving

  43. Nightrider

    No Clark/Wood/Troyer/Burtnik/Bates/Huxley/Kaminski/Groucutt/Bevan (and many more), no ELO.

    Dislike

    chippachris

    @Elliott Cook Bev isn't even in The Orchestra anymore, so the only member who was a part of the original ELO is Kaminski. As fas the vocalists, I'm not sure. Probably Bates.

    Nightrider

    @chippachris I saw them some days before, and I can tell that there was Louis Clark and Kaminski + members of ELO Pt. 2 (another realy good group I'd say)

    John Smith

    Aw, go fuck yourself.

    Slayer of guys 1996

    I like this album it has “alone in the universe” which is a good song and is even close to telephone line on how good it is “ain’t it a drag” is like this album’s “mr. blue sky” or “livin’ thing”

    NightIsRight

    Idiot Jeff Lynne is Electric Light Orchestra he still has Richard Tandy .All the other guys quit or some of them are dead

  44. Slip Kid

    So much talent to this day

  45. Gérard Geers

    👌 Jeff...

  46. Alexandra & Pascal

    Great animation. I love it. Congratulation ELO :D.Greetings,Alexandra & Pascal

  47. Nathan Murphy

    Still pumping out hits after hits! Such talent!

  48. Стрелец html

    ЕЛО! Я вас обожаю!!! Вы супер!!!!!!!!

  49. orion deschamps

    The thing this is the upbeat disco of the Shine a little love still a good with great video

  50. interfox

    che fantastica allegria grazie , mister lynne !

  51. Grandpapa Palpatine

    AWESOME MUSIC VIDEO!!!

  52. Shawn Silver

    I hear that bit from the way life's meant to be! Love this album can't wait for it

  53. Televincanto

    Excuse me? Only 31k subscribers? This band is extremely underrated!

  54. Amy Lovendaal

    As long as you can listen to Jeff Lynne as a composer, a musician and a singer, your life will never be a drag !

  55. jdlocotxftw2002

    How can you not get this video? The male (blue) is very logical in his thinking. The female (pink/red) thinks with her heart. They are always battling and it's a drag the relationship is getting tough. They look back and reflect when things were good and they were dancing and happy but not anymore.

    AaronsGame

    This is how my relationship is but the girl is logical and I think with my heart

    Shredderworld

    jdlocotxftw2002 why does everything have to be sexist can’t you just enjoy the message and not force ideas that weren’t there

    DillonEP

    I think it's ambiguous of gender anyway, I see it as the old idea that your "heart" and mind can seemingly fight each other sometimes

  56. John Lorenz Lesiguez

    Is anyone else bothered about the illuminati symbol on the tv?

  57. Leslie

    Entiendo muy poco de inglés, pero este tema me dice que el amor siempre gana a la razón (cerebro), gracias ELO-

  58. Борис Хромов

    Очень напоминает TRAVELING WILBURYS. Линн держит планку!

  59. Павел Денисов

    Времена TRAVELING WILBURYS...Ждёшь вступление Джорджа Харрисона. Прекрасный отсыл во временаTRAVELING WILBURYS . Вечная музыка и Вечная Память Музыкантам ( Джорджу, Рою)

  60. Diane Perry

    I cannot stop singing this song thank you Mr Lynne

  61. Isabelle santos

    COME TO BRAZIL

    Leslie

    +Isabelle santos and to Chile too

  62. TheGraniteFlaneur

    The intro reminds me of something by the Maverick or the Barenaked Ladies.

  63. Игорь Лезин

    Отличная вещь-как и все Его JEFFA композиции

  64. hereisthe news

    Why do people keep harping on about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? It is meaningless. The fact that they point blank refuse to have Jeff in it makes it meaningless. The man is a music genius. End of. He doesn't need pointless trinkets. The music speaks for itself. And I'm not looking for thumbs up with this post. I don't need meaningless trinkets. :)

    Amy Lovendaal

    +hereisthe news: I'm giving you a thumbs up anyway; and it's nót meaningless !!!

    John Smith

    hereisthe news hes on it now i think as of 2017🎉

    starfiremale

    Why are they point blank refusing him?? Did he upset someone??

    Luke Straut

    I don't know if that was a thing before but as of 2017 ELO is in the Hall of Fame

  65. Willie Wilson

    YO what the hell is the all seeing eye in a pyramid doing on the damn tv? anyone else notice that?

    John Quiggin

    Jeff Lynne is an Alan Parsons fan ;-/

    CT Bradey

    will wilson it's from one of the old ELO albums

  66. spookyjim

    I love all this music this is the only kind of music I like

  67. cooljunkproductions

    The animation is good but it seems to be lacking a lot of detail. A bit boring, really.

  68. Ziggy Stardust

    2:24 what Jeff Lynne's house looks like under a black light

    John Smith

    Ziggy Stardust No.

  69. Jesse Hess

    You still got it! I remember so long ago when I first heard and your voice. Thank you for the continued vocal output!

  70. Lorkhanable

    unexpected animation but very good

  71. The Mechanic

    Not sure if it's a April Fools Prank or Real....

    John Smith

    The Mechanic glad it wasnt

    SublimeHawk6

    Why would it be April fools

  72. Nicholas Sadlier

    Jeff is a hell of a drummer!

  73. Lisa Mena

    Love this song and this sweet video, fantastic animation indeed.
    Thank you ELO for always making me feel better.

  74. MisterTalkingMachine

    The animation is fantastic. I think this should have more views.

  75. Charlie O'Malley

    Why the all seeing eye and illuminati pyramid symbols on the TV.?... bizarre.

    jdlocotxftw2002

    +charliebadger There is that checkerboard floor that the Freemasons hold dear as well.

  76. Michael Norman

    Alone in the Universe, simply a fantastic album! Thanks Jeff!

  77. Trevor Dailey

    I'm so confused

  78. PogieJoe

    The animation is stunningly good.

  79. Glen Gordon

    Jeff are you going to record with Dhani Harrison anytime soon ?

  80. Glen Gordon

    Is the meaning of this song about learning to love yourself by bringing the mind & heart together as one ?

  81. Stimulation Simulation

    I'm pretty sure that was first degree murder, what the heart did.

  82. Carl Siemens

    Who did the animation? It's wonderful!

    Jason Milov

    Animation was done by Open the Portal!

  83. ed rob

    weird....

  84. Smile_Slime

    Pretty nice, good job Jeff.

  85. LegoLorax

    Good song! But there isn't any strings so... Its not ELO

    LegoLorax

    @Paul Renowden That song still has strings, re-listen friend

    Paul Renowden

    +Lego - Lorax Well, I've been listening to it for 30 years and I can't hear strings. Also according to Jeff Lynne, it's the first ELO song to not feature strings (hence why in the promo video, Mik etc are miming at the pianos) the drum is a tape loop and there's bass, pianos and guitars. No strings.

    LegoLorax

    @Paul Renowden Well then, Thank you for your knowledge ...

    Nicholas Sadlier

    +Lego - Lorax ELO ditched the strings back in the Seventies and brought out the amazing Time album (just listen to the incredibleTwilght or Here is the News - not a string in sight) So I guess what I'm trying to say is: ELO + strings and ELO - strings both = amazing!

    Michael Norman

    @Nicholas Sadlier Well said!

  86. Fruebie

    Awesome!!!
