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. Their style over time has shifted between punk, art rock, post-punk, and New Wave. Their music and stage show mingle kitsch science fiction themes, deadpan surrealist humor, and mordantly satirical social commentary.

Intersecting love lines 
Drew us closer every day 
Always kept your distance 
When you felt my presence near you 
Love keeps on rolling over

Fly in retreat 
I would follow without shame 
A stupid spud staggering to the flame 
To be had and re-had 
Be a victim of the pain 
Now it's strange, it's so strange 
It's a strange pursuit 
It's a strange pursuit 
It's a strange pursuit

I come running like a fat-boy 
In lead shoes 
But like a fat-boy 
Huff puffing after you 
It's hopeless to hope for 
The one thing that I'm wanting 
'Cause it's strange 
It's so very strange

It's a strange pursuit 
Darling, I'm dazzled 
But you know I'm too Frazzled 
It's a strange pursuit 
Makin' my mind up 
While it lies in little pieces 
It's a strange pursuit

You know it's getting tough 
When you're getting real rough 
It's a strange pursuit 
Darling, I'm dazzled 
But you know I'm too frazzled 
It's a strange pursuit 
Makin' my mind up 
While it lies in little pieces 
It s a strange pursuit
