Devo

Devo ( /ˈdiːvoʊ/, originally /diːˈvoʊ/) is an American punk rock/New Wave band formed in 1972 consisting of members from Kent and Akron, Ohio. The classic line-up of the band includes two sets of brothers, the Mothersbaughs (Mark and Bob) and the Casales (Gerald and Bob), along with Alan Myers. The band had a No. 14 Billboard chart hit in 1980 with the single "Whip It", and has maintained a cult following throughout its existence.

I heard a girl in a dress
Say her face was a mess
I heard there's no reason why
I heard that now's the time to buy

On planet earth
I'll probably stay
On planet earth
It's a place to live your life

Where pleasure follows pain
People go insane, fly around in planes
Pray that it won't rain, drive around in cars
Get drunk in local bars, dream of being stars
Well I lived all my life on planet earth

I saw a girl lose all control
When she lost her new mink stole
I saw her try to catch a man
Things I couldn't understand

On planet earth
I'll probably stay
On planet earth
It's a place to live your life

Where pleasure follows pain
People go insane, fly around in planes
Pray that it won't rain, drive around in cars
Get drunk in local bars, dream of being stars
Well I lived all my life on planet earth

I saw a man on a stage
Scream "Put me back in my cage"
I saw him hang by his tie
I saw enough to make me cry
On planet earth, on planet earth

I lived all my life
I lived all my life on planet earth
I lived all my life
I lived all my life on planet earth

I lived all my life
I lived all my life on planet earth
I lived all my life
I lived all my life on planet earth
