"And you may find yourself

Living in a shotgun shack

And you may find yourself

In another part of the world

And you may find yourself

Behind the wheel of a large automobile

And you may find yourself in a beautiful house..."

And you may ask yourself, well

How did I get here?" -- Talking Heads, 'Once In A Lifetime' (1980)
