They Might Be Giants - Au Contraire Lyrics




David Bowie came to town
Flying overhead
"Don't you dig my chops?" he cried
This is what they said
Au contraire, Dave
Quite the opposite, in fact
As it happens, au contraire
Au contraire, mon frere

Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Knew not what to do
"This tie clashes with my hat," he cried
"Don't you think that's true?"

Au contraire, Delano
Hate to rain on your parade
As it happens, au contraire
Au contraire, mon frere

Jodie Foster held two pair
Bach had three of a kind
Gandhi said, "With my full house,
I will blow your mind!"

Au contraire, Mahatma
Hate to contradict you, but
As it happens, au contraire
Au contraire, yes au contraire

And au contraire, you square
Wash that notion from your hair
If you're still there, I must declare
That au contraire, mon tres
Bon frere

Right on! Right on! Right on! Right on! Right on! Right on! Right on! Right on! Right on!
Right on. Right on.
Right on!

  1. Mister Apple

    And they say that Infinity War is the most ambitious crossover...

    Alejodios 41

    Hey Apple, you are everywhere!

  2. lithead

    Talk about major earworm infection! "Franklin Delano Roosevelt knew not what to do..."
    Where do they get their huge mental repository of cultural, historical and scientific references? Not to mention their sweeping knowledge of musical styles...they are unrecognized geniuses, with over 1500 songs when you include Dial-a-Song. They tour constantly, have families, and must eat and sleep sometimes. How do they keep it up?
    I want to know their health regimens.

    1. they're nerds.

    2. They probably read a lot.
