We'e buying anf seeling 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

It's easy when you've got all the information

Inside help, no investigation

No questions in the house

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
