A woman made a man
A man he made a house
And when they lay together
Little creatures all come out

Well, I've seen sex and I think it's alright
It makes those little creatures come to life
I can laugh or I can turn away
Well, I've seen sex and I think it's okay

We are creatures, creatures of love
We are creatures, creatures of love
From the sleep of reason, a life is born
We are creatures of love, we are creatures of love

It's okay to be afraid
When the blue spark hits your brain
We can love one another
I've been told that it's okay

Doctor, doctor, tell me what I am
Am I one of those human beings
Well I can laugh or I can learn to think
So help me now to find out what I feel

We are creatures, creatures of love
We are creatures, creatures of love
We've been here forever, before you were born
We are creatures of love, we are creatures of love

A man can drive a car
And a woman can be a boss
I'm a monkey and a flower
I'm everything at once

Well, a woman and a man can be together
If they decide to, they'll make little creatures
Watch 'em now!
Little creature of love
With two arms and two legs
From a moment of passion
Now they cover the bed

We are creatures of love, we are creatures of love
We are creatures, creatures of love
We are creatures, creatures of love
From the sleep of reason a life is born
We are creatures of love, we are creatures of love

I suppose it's subjective. I'm biased because I'm not a David Byrne fan...but to me, the lyrics seem really banal. However, I do like the music. Thanks for asking.

If you're going to err, it may as well be on the too much side of Talking Heads. Keep it up.
I think this band is hit-and-miss really... Sometimes I love what I hear and sometimes I think it is lame and even kind of awkward.  I honestly wonder how much of their adoration stems from the fact that they were pioneers in the music scene and how much is really because the music is worth a damn in the grand scheme of things. 

The same can be said of a lot of the older bands I guess...
Agreed. I was just wondering why so much talking heads??
What is it with Radio Paradise and Talking Heads. I have to disconnect every time this band comes on cause it is just painful to listen; which is way too often cause you play them way too much. This is my only complaint against the station as a long time listener, but it is a big one!
