Overkill" is a song by Australian pop rock band Men at Work. It was released in 1983 as the second single from their second studio album, Cargo (see 1983 in music). It was written by lead singer Colin Hay. It peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100; No. 5 on the Australian Kent Music Report Singles Chart; and top 10 in Canada, Ireland, and Norway. The song was a departure from the group's style of reggae-influenced pop rock, featuring a melancholic feel musically and lyrically.
Lyrics for Overkill (album version) by Men At Work . And though there's little variation It nullifies the night From overkill Day after day it reappears Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear Ghosts appear and fade away Come back another day I can't get to sleep I think about the implications Of diving in too deep And possibly the complications Especially at night I worry over situations that I. know will be all right It's just overkill Day after day it reappears Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear Ghosts appear and fade away Ghosts appear and fade away Ghosts appear and fade away.
Cifra: Principal (violão e guitarra).
