— Men At Work — It’s A Mistake

I’m drawn to songs from the 80’s and I was at a British Pub [kinda], themed Restaurant that I like and a random song came on that I didn’t know.  I whipped out my phone and used the app, Shazam.  Men At Work – It’s A mistake was the song.  Initially released in 1983, it is my song du jour.  I’m finding myself listening to it everytime I hop in the car to drive anywhere.  This will last for a week or so until something else pops up.

Here goes the 80’s video that absolutely makes no sense when applied to the song.  Hey, it was the 80’s.  Music Video’s were a new Idea:

Men at Work – It´s a Mistake

Jump down the shelters to get away
The boys are cock’in up their guns
Tell us general, is it party time?
If it is can we all come

Don’t think that we don’t know
Don’t think that were not trying
Don’t think we move too slow
Its no use after crying

Its a mistake, its a mistake
Its a mistake, its a mistake

After the laughter as died away
And all the boys have had their fun
No surface noise now, not much to say
They’ve got the bad guys on the run

Don’t try to say you’re sorry
Don’t say he drew his gun
They’ve gone and grabbed old Ronnie
Hes not the only one saying

Its a mistake, its a mistake
Its a mistake, its a mistake

Tell us commander, what do you think?
cos we know that you love all that power
Is it on then, are we on the brink?
We wish you’d all throw in the towel

Well not fade out too soon
Not in this finest hour
Whistle your favorite tune
Well send a card and flower

Its a mistake, its a mistake
Its a mistake, its a mistake

I hope you enjoyed it as I do.  The best part of the song is the strong, Men-At-Work-ish (they are unique), Reggae-like, Ska-kinda, beat that makes you want to just relax and bump your head to it.  Great Song!
