Notes
There are better things to talk about
Be constructive
Bear witness
We can use
Be constructive
With yer blues
Even he turn the water blues
Even you turn the water green

Why don't you quiet down
Why don't you quiet down
Why don't you quiet down
Why don't you quiet down

????
he never gos and he never stays
????
Better in times when I could stand back

All over the neighbors
Maybe if I can see out here
All over the clovers
All over the clovers
Let me out of here
Alloverallovelloverallover

(Why don't you quiet down)
(Why don't you quiet down)
(Why don't you quiet down)
(Why don't you quiet down)
we are the DOLLARS & CENTS
and the PoUNDS and Pence
the MARK and the YEN
We are going to crack your little souls
We are going to crack your little souls

we are the DOLLARS & CENTS
and the PoUNDS and Pence
and the PoUNDS and Pence
We are going to crack your little souls
We are going to crack your little souls


-- Most of the lyrics taken from official lyric sheets handed out at a listening party.


From Jam!: One of the tracks premiered on the band's brief touring duties behind "Kid A," the recorded version seems less lurchy than the live rendition. A string section rises and falls behind Yorke's vocals, occasionally overpowering his singing, while the rhythm section hammers out a tricky time-signature. It peaks with Yorke's most impassioned vocal and then breaks down to guitar, cymbals and synth squelches.

Review from SXSW by Allstar: A busy, cymbal-driven intro spilled out next as "Dollars and Cents" rode a wave of outlandish instrumentation in the same vein as Kid A, if not harsher. Standing out above the sonic mess, however, was Yorke's bird-like call, which wailed throughout.
