We're buying and selling your history
How we go about it is no mystery
We check it with the city then change the law
Are you looking forward?
Now you want some more
We're S-H-O-P-P-I-N-G
We're shopping
It's easy when you've got all the information
Inside help, no investigation
No questions in the house
No give and take
There's a big bang in the city
We're all on the make
We're S-H-O-P-P-I-N-G
We're shopping
Our gain is your loss
That's the price you pay
I heard it in the House of Commons
Everything's for sale
We're S-H-O-P-P-I-N-G
We're shopping
