Sat in Your Lap
Kate Bush Lyrics


I see the people working
And see it working for them
And so I want to join in
But then I find it hurts me

Some say that knowledge is something sat in your lap
Some say that knowledge is something that you never have

I see the people happy
So can it happen for me?
'Cause when I am unhappy
There's nothing that can move me

Some say that knowledge is something that you never have
Some say that knowledge is something sat in your lap
Some say that heaven is hell
Some say that hell is heaven

I must admit, just when I think I'm king
(I just begin)
Just when I think I'm king, I must admit
(I just begin)
Just when I think I'm king
(I just begin)

I've been doing it for years
My goal is moving near
It says, look, I'm over here
Then it up and disappears

Some say that knowledge is something sat in your lap
Some say that knowledge is ho-ho-ho-ho

I want to be a lawyer
I want to be a scholar
But I really can't be bothered
Ooh, just gimme it quick, gimme it, gimme gimme gimme gimme!

Some say that knowledge is ho-ho-ho
Some say that knowledge is ho-ho-ho
Some say that heaven is hell
Some say that hell is heaven

I must admit, just when I think I'm king
(I just begin)
Just when I think I'm king, I must admit
(I just begin)
Just when I think everything's going great
(I just begin)
I get the break
Hey, I'm gonna take it all
(I just begin)
When I'm king
(Just begin)

In my dome of ivory
A home of activity
I want the answers quickly
But I don't have no energy

I hold a cup of wisdom
But there is nothing within
My cup, she never overfloweth
And 'tis I that moan and groaneth

Some grey and white matter
(Give me the karma, mama)
I'm coming up the ladder
I'm coming up the ladder
(A jet to Mecca)
Up the ladder
(Tibet or Jeddah)
(To Salisbury)
(A monastery)
(The longest journey)
(Across the desert)
(Across the weather)
(Across the elements)
(Across the water)

Some grey and white matter,
"Give me the karma, mama!"
I'm coming up the ladder,
"A jet to Mecca,"
I'm coming up the ladder,
"Tibet or Jeddah,
Up the ladder...
"To Salisbury,
A monastery,
The longest journey,
Across the desert,
Across the weather,
Across the elements,
Across the water!"

pure genius!!

How did a 22/23-year-old write, record and produce The Dreaming? HOW?!

Syfoll

@Paul Wilde Roger Waters and Floyd in general peaked later, around 29-30, another example of a late bloomer is Nico, who didn't even start writing songs until she was 29-30.

Harry May

@Assiman The Beatles didn't do anything worthwhile period: just another mainstream artist in the 60s

Harry May

@Trev L Agree

David Alexander

@MB your opinion of course .. but it's crap ...I'm not a Dylan fan. But he's a genius .. incidentally he wasn't a band. So your opinion is not worth listening to

MB

@David Alexander mike's ahead ey moron? The Beatles and Dylan are the most overrated bands in the land

What A Wild Day We Had Filming "Sat In Your Lap" In Studio 1. I Played A Minotaur and If you listen closely at 2:00 One of the Bamboo canes I was whipping through the air to make a Percussive Rhythm with Paddy Bush splintered, and so I cracked it in half across my knee in time. Kate kept it in the record - She always did have good taste.😂
