Overview

Lyrics

We got Arizona
We got the Rose Bowl
Fairtrade chocolate bars
We got our mothers
We've studied Baudelaire
Stéphane Mallarmé
The Geico Gecko
We hoard them all away

Here in the Tower of Babel
Our calendars are all full
So many people we get to meet
But nobody ever says "Hi" to me
Here in the Tower of Babel
There is a sign language girl
Signing the words to this song
As the band keeps on playing along

We bought insurance
For our home loans
So we can clean up
When we go bankrupt
We'll ride our bicycles
To catch the EcoBus
Get on the walking path
Hope you can come with us

Here in the Tower of Babel
Our calendars are all full
So many people we get to meet
But nobody ever says "Hi" to me
Here in the Tower of Babel
There is a sign language girl
Signing the words to this song
As the band keeps on playing along

We were building up the tower
Make it go ever higher
Almost getting up as tall as St. Paul in his shawl
But when Jehovah saw us rise
He shot out lightning from His eyes
His righteousness then knocked us down
Where we belong

Here in the Tower of Babel
Our calendars are all full
So many people we get to meet
But nobody ever says "Hi" to me
Here in the Tower of Babel
There is a sign language girl
Signing the words to the song
As the band keeps on playing along
