Trivia / Info:

Somewhere With DEVO is a vast medley of songs often performed on the tours between 1988 and 1991, closing the show. (The NICBT album calls this medley a "suite.") It includes:
The released demo adds "Social Fools" and quotes "Over The Rainbow."

Onstage Behavior:

Directly before "Somewhere", the band would abruptly grab a random audience member, take him onto the stage, "inspect him" (as the "Shout" lyrics claimed, which usually involved running around him in circles or marching in place,) and putting him back in the crowd. Mark Mothersbaugh then proceeded to stage-dive.


Lyrics:

(Gerry:) Shout!
Shout!
Shout!
Shout!
(Mark:) I'm shouting
(Gerry:) About the world outside
(Mark:) I'm shouting
(Gerry:) Because you just can't hide
(Mark:) I'm shouting
(Bob1:) From the plain honest truth
(Mark:) I'm shouting
(Mark:) There's so much we could do!
(Gerry:) Shout!
(Mark:) I'm shouting
Shout!
I'm shouting
Shout!
I'm shouting
Shout!
I'm shouting
(Bob1:) And when you put it all together
And when you roll it in a ball
And when you watch another pyramid
As it's about to fall
(Mark and Gerry:) Remember you were there
Remember if you care
For those who held their ground
When it all came down, say...
(Gerry:) Shout!
Shout!
Shout!
(Mark and Gerry:) Well baby this one's for you
Shout!
(Mark and Gerry:) For everything that you do
Shout!
(Mark and Gerry:) Until the battle is won
Shout!
(Mark and Gerry:) We'll live to fight on and on
Shout!
(Mark and Gerry:) Well baby this one's for you
Shout!
(Mark and Gerry:) For everything that you do
Shout!
(Mark and Gerry:) Until the battle is won
Shout!
(Mark and Gerry:) We'll live to fight on and on
(Gerry:) Shout!
(Mark:) I'm shouting
(Gerry:) Are you ready?
(Gerry:) Shout!
(Mark:) I'm shouting
(Gerry:) Are you ready for inspection?
Shout!
I'm shouting
Are you ready?
Shout!
I'm shouting
Are you ready for inspection?
(Gerry:) He's ready!
To die!
(Mark and Gerry:) There's a place for us
Somewhere a place for us
Peace and quiet and open air
Wait for us
Somewhere
There's a time for us
Somewhere a time for us
Time together with time to spare
Time to love
Time to care
Someday
Somewhere
We'll find a new way of living
We'll find a way of forgiving
Somewhere
Someday
There's a place for us
A time and place for us
Hold my hand and we're halfway there
Hold my hand and I'll take you there
Somehow
Someday
Somewhere
I'm a disco boy
I'm a disco boy
(Mark:) I'm a disco dancer
But I've got no place to go
(Gerry:) (I'm a disco boy)
(Gerry:) (I'm a disco boy)
Oh no
I'm a disco dancer, baby
And my feet won't touch the floor
(I'm a disco boy)
(I'm a disco boy)
Woah, no
I been sleeping twenty years or more
I remember long time ago
(I'm a disco boy)
(I'm a disco boy)
(I'm a disco boy)
(I'm a disco boy)

(Mark:) I been looking for a dance to do
(Mark:) I been looking for some answers too
(Mark and Gerry:) Now I'm back to change your minds
(Mark and Gerry:) Now I'm moving right in time
(Mark and Gerry:) In a world that's turned unkind
(Mark and Gerry:) I see what's going on behind my back
(Gerry:) (I'm a disco boy)
(I'm a disco boy)
(I'm a disco boy)
(I'm a disco boy)
(Mark:) I'm a disco dancer
And I keep dancing on and on
(I'm a disco boy)
(I'm a disco boy)
Oh no
I'm a disco dancer, baby
But I think that something's wrong
(I'm a disco boy)
(I'm a disco boy)
Oh no
I been sleeping twenty years and more
I remember long time ago
Now I'm back to change your mind
Now I'm moving right in time
In a world that's turned unkind
I see what's going on behind my back
