Pere Ubu - Debbie Harry (Blondie) - David Sanborn - Waiting for Mary - Lyrics - (a)Live 1989

Very fun and different video of the coolest. most creative intellectual I've met is from Northeast Ohio - David Thomas. of Pere Ubu... and many other interests. I interviewed him for realNEO, a few years ago, and he gave me the best business advice I've ever heard, which has worked very well for Thomas, and is working well for me.

You've seen it in action, here on realNEO.

If you have your shit together, you see David Thomas and Pere Ubu live in March, for yourself, at the Beachland.

This time, I intend to film.

Waiting For Mary
(1989)

Welcome to Mars!
It's open all hours.
Bill's in the back and Fred's on the phone, sayin,
"What are we doing here?"
Oh, he was sayin that you are never alone in the Twilight Zone.
What are we doing here?
Waiting. For. Mary.
Waiting. For. Mary.
Waiting. For. Mary.
Oh.

I oughta know but my memory is goin.
As bad as it seems maybe we're dreamin.
Don't mind the stares we've paid for these chairs.
And keep up that smile, it might be awhile.
What are we doing here?

Waiting. For. Mary.
Waiting. For. Mary.
Waiting. For. Mary.
Oh.

Oh, I.
Won. Der. Why.
She. Can't. Be.
On. time. Ever?

What do you know, it had to be snowin!
I'm down on my knees.
I'm beggin you please.
Oh, what do you see?
Why, it had to be me, sayin, What?
What are we doing here?
Now, one at a time or all in a line, say it:

Waiting. For. Mary.
Waiting. For. Mary.
Waiting. For. Mary.
Oh.
