LYRICS

Now I can see what the people are living for, living for
Now I have seen what the people are living for, living for
And nobody cares anymore but I do, I do
Nobody loves anymore but I will, I will

But I, I’ll find it alone, I will, I will
But I, I’ll make it alone, I will, will, will

So it’s a serious world that we’re living in, living in
So it’s a serious world that I’m living in, living in
And nobody cares anymore but I do, I do
People insist on a seriousness but I, but I

But I, I’m not so serious, not all so ser, so serious
No I, I’m not so serious, not all so ser, so ser, so serious

The glorious one, glorious one, glorious one
Serious one, serious one, serious one, serious one
ahhh, la-la, la-la, la-la
ahhh
ahhh, la-la, la-la, la-la
ahhh

NOTES

  • There’s no studio version of this song (yet?).
  • Only 2 live recordings of “Serious” are known to exist. The first one was recorded in London at The Town And Country Club on August 31, 1991 and the second one in Limerick at The Parkway on October 3, 1991. Both are bootlegs recorded from the audience.
  • Lyrics transcribed by Alan Martin and published on his YouTube account under the Parkway 1991 recording. Alan twitted “A word in the 1st line and 2nd last line could be wrong. Also think she sings ‘not all’ in 2nd chorus but not 100%”
