We Do What We Do
by Pere Ubu
““We decided that if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck: it’s a duck” (David Thomas)
“I'm crossing parrots with carrier pigeons”
“So you can send vocal messages!”
(Buddy Ebsen to Frances Langford; “BORN TO DANCE” 1936)
Life originated in a swamp: this duck is doing things that no ordinary duck can do, since day one, 50 years in advance, never interested in becoming a boring lake swan.
The world is just a pond: I'm glad to be “Born to the MODERN Dance””
