about

"Huey Lewis and the News" is a song set in two decades. In the first, our protagonist is recalling a 'situation' between himself and a girlfriend that took place twenty years ago in a nondescript car. As they spoke, on the radio came a well-known Huey Lewis and the News track.

Twenty years later and they meet up again.

Whatdoyaknow? She's now got a new fella who's a bit full of himself. As our central character sits in the back of her (much newer) car he recalls that old situation, quietly surveying to himself that this new guy looks a little bit like the REAL Huey Lewis.

This is NOT a true story and Lightning Dept have nothing against the great man himself.
Enjoy!

lyrics

"Huey Lewis And The News"

Sitting in your car with a pregnancy kit
I kinda get the feeling this is really it
And all that I can hear above the early evening gloom
Is that common refrain of a Huey Lewis tune...Huey Lewis

There was nothing I could say
Nothing that I could do
'Cos you would always make your own decisions
We are born to take the wrong decisions it's true...

Twenty years later and you've bought a new car
And you're living with this fella who's got a bad heart
All that I can hear above his early forties boom
Is that common refrain of a Huey Lewis tune
(He's Huey Lewis)

There was nothing that we could say
Nothing that we could do
'Cos you will always make your own decisions
We are born to take the wrong decisions

Yeah, you would always make your own decisions
We are born to take the wrong decisions
It's true
