Annotationen

Eine in Pop und Rock seltene dreiteilige ABC-Songstruktur!
Im Gegensatz zu No Milk Today, das sich ebenfalls am Gegensatz zwischen öffentlich und privat abarbeitet, sieht der Erzähler von «Look Through Any Window» in die Wohnungen der Leute hinein, wie sie sich für den Tag, das öffentliche Leben, vorbereiten. Das öffentliche leben ist geschäftigt, Menschen scheinen wie Ameisen, man sieht als Beobachter mehr, dass sie etwas tun als was genau sie eigentlich tun.

Lyrics

[A] Look through any window, yeah What do you see? Smilin' faces all around Rushin' through the busy town [B] (Where do they go?) Movin' on their way Walkin' down the highways and the byways (Where do they go?) Movin' on their way People with their shy ways and their sly ways [C] Oh, you can see the little children all around Oh, you can see the little ladies in their gowns when you [A] Look through any window, yeah Any time of day See the drivers on the roads Pullin' down their heavy loads [B] (Where do they go?) Movin' on their way Drivin' down highways and the byways (Where do they go?) Movin' on their way Drivers with their shy ways and their sly ways [C] Oh, you can see the little children all around Oh, you can see the little ladies in their gowns when you [Interlude] [A] Look through any window, yeah What do you see? Smilin' faces all around Rushin' through the busy town [Coda] (Where do they go?) Movin' on their way Movin' on their way Movin' on their way
