History Repeating

  • The word is about, there's something evolving,
    Whatever may come, the world keeps revolving...
    They say the next big thing is here,
    That the revolution's near,

    But to me it seems quite clear
    That's it's all just a little bit of history repeating.
    The newspapers shout a new style is growing,
    But it don't know if it's coming or going,

    There is fashion, there is fad
    Some is good, some is bad
    And the joke rather sad,
    That it's all just a little bit of History repeating.

    And I've seen it before
    And I'll see it again
    Yes I've seen it before
    Just little bits of history repeating

    Some people don't dance, if they don't know who's singing,
    Why ask your head, it's your hips that are swinging
    Life's for us to enjoy
    Woman, man, girl and boy,
    Feel the pain, feel the joy
    Aside set the little bits of history repeating

    Just little bits of history repeating
    And I've seen it before
    And I'l see it again
    Yes I've seen it before
    Just little bits of history repeating Writer/s: ALEX MICHAEL GIFFORD

  • Jaydub from CaDame Shirley Bassey has an amazing voice...just as perfect as when she recorded Goldfinger.
  • Tina from Norcross, GaI've heard this song in two places: one, during a car commercial (it says something that I can remember the song and remember it was a car commerical but can't remember the make or model of car!); and two, during Larry King's 50th anniversary special. It's an infectious beat that just won't get out of your head.
