Country House
Blur Lyrics


City dweller, successful fella thought to himself
Oops I've got a lot of money
Caught in a rat race terminally
I'm a professional cynic but my heart's not in it
I'm payin' the price of livin' life at the limit
Caught up in the century's anxiety
Yes, it preys on him
He's gettin' thin, try the simple life

He lives in a house
A very big house in the country
Watchin' afternoon repeats
And the food he eats in the country
He takes all manner of pills
And piles up analyst bills in the country
Oh, it's like an animal farm
That's the rural charm in the country

He's got morning glory and life's a different story
Everything's going jackanory
Touched with his own mortality
He's reading Balzac, knocking back Prozac
It's a helping hand that makes you feel wonderfully blind
Oh, it's a century's remedy
For the faint at heart
A new start, try the simple life

He lives in a house
A very big house in the country
He's got a fog in his chest
So he needs a lot of rest in the country
He doesn't drink, smoke, laugh
Takes herbal baths in the country
You should come to no harm
On the animal farm in the country
In the country, in the country, in the country

Blow, blow me out, I am so sad, I don't know why
Blow, blow me out, I am so sad, I don't know why

Oh he lives in a house
A very big house in the country
Watchin' afternoon repeats
And the food he eats in the country
He takes all manner of pills
And piles up analyst bills in the country
Oh, it's like an animal farm
That's the rural charm in the country

Oh he lives in a house
A very big house in the country
He's got a fog in his chest
So he needs a lot of rest in the country
He doesn't drink, smoke, laugh
Takes herbal baths in the country
You should come to no harm
On the animal farm in the country

And so the story begins
City dweller, successful fella
Thought to himself, "Whoops, I've got a lot of money"
Caught in a rat race terminally
I'm a professional cynic, but my heart's not in it
I'm payin' the price of livin' life at the limit
Caught up in the century's anxiety
Yes, it preys on him (preys on him)
He's gettin' thin (getting thin)
Try the simple life
He lives in a house, a very big house in the country
Watchin' afternoon repeats and the food he eats in the country
He takes all manner of pills and piles up analyst bills in the country
Oh it's like an animal farm, lots of rural charm in the country
He's got morning glory and that's a different story
Everything's goin' jackanory
Touched with his own mortality
He's reading Balzac, and knocking back Prozac
It's a helping hand that makes you feel wonderfully bland
Oh it's the century's remedy
For the faint at heart (faint at heart)
A new start (a new start)
Try the simple life
He lives in a house, a very big house in the country
He's got a fog in his chest so he needs a lot of rest in the country
He doesn't drink, smoke, laugh, takes herbal baths in the country
He says you'll come to no harm, on the animal farm in the country
In the country
In the country
In the country!
Blow, blow me out I am so sad, I don't know why
Blow, blow me out I am so sad, I don't know why
Oh, he lives in a house, a very big house in the country
Watchin' afternoon repeats and the food he eats in the country
He takes all manner of pills and piles up analyst bills in the country
Oh it's like an animal farm, lots of rural charm in the country
Oh, he lives in a house, a very big house in the country
He's got a fog in his chest so he needs a lot of rest in the country
He doesn't drink, smoke, laugh, takes herbal baths in the country
He says you'll come to no harm, on the animal farm in the country

LYRICS:

You gotta roll with it
You gotta take your time
You gotta say what you say
Don't let anybody get in your way
'Cause it's all too much for me to take
Don't ever stand aside
Don't ever be denied
You wanna be who you'd be
If you're coming with me
I think I've got a feeling I've lost inside
I think I'm gonna take me away and hide
I'm thinking of things that I just can't abide
I know the roads down which your life will drive
I find the key that lets you slip inside
Kiss the girl, she's not behind the door
But you know I think I recognize your face
But I've never seen you before
You gotta roll with it
You gotta take your time
You gotta say what you say
Don't let any fucker get in your way
'Cause it's all too much for me to take
I know the roads down which your life will drive
I find the key that lets you slip inside
Kiss the girl, she's not behind the door
But you know I think I recognize your face
But I've never seen you before
You gotta roll with it
You gotta take your time
You gotta say what you say
Don't let anybody get in your way
'Cause it's all too much for me to take
Don't ever stand aside
Don't ever be denied
You wanna be who you'd be
If you're coming with me
I think I've got a feeling I've lost inside
I think I've got a feeling I've lost inside
I think I've got a feeling I've lost inside
I think I've got a feeling I've lost inside
I think I've got a feeling I've lost inside
I think I've got a feeling I've lost inside
I think I've got a feeling I've lost inside
I think I've got a feeling I've lost inside

go away

i wonder why people don’t like this song compared to other blur songs, it has a good melody and it’s very catchy

Ceoil

its under appreciated. the backing vocals in the chorus are to die for. I also am so sad I don't know why.

i love michael myers

YESS

Sploon 2

@Mattie Mclean you were the one who started it but ok. Bye bye

Mattie Mclean

@Sploon 2 Jesus! Let it go already. What a pointless conversation

Mattie Mclean

@Sploon 2 The actual truth is that Graham climbed out on the balcony of a hotel and said "this is doing my head in! I'm going to jump!" and because he was drunk at the time,Damon went and stood with him to make sure he didn't do anything stupid, like accidentally fall. Of course, if you word it in a certain way it gets a lot more attention from the press. "Never let the truth get in the way of a good story" I worked with Andy Ross, owner of Blur's record label, and he told me stuff like that was going on all the time. Every day would be a new drama.
