The b****** Lyrics–The Tragically Hip Lyrics–

If you ask me how I knew, I saw you.
I had a bird’s-eye view of a bird’s-eye
view when I saw you.
I saw you not as you think,
simply just as you. I saw you
And all of this augers well
even though it?s presaging pell-mell.
All of it augers well.
the b****** of it being, having to choose
Then you turned all Billy Sunday, shoutin’
“Philadelphia for Christ and Christ for
Philadelphia,”
as the sun groomed the plane with crepuscular rays. When I saw you
And all of this augers well.
Even so, it?s presaging pell-mell.
And all of it augers well.
the b****** being, having to choose
between a flickering fuse and power
beyond what you use
Never mind us purple italians,
never mind that pool in the mountains
Victory came and went
on winged elephants. I saw you.
And all of this augers well
even though, even so it?s
presaging pell-mell.
All of it augers well
this is the b******
the b****** of it being: having to choose
