Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott - Capital Love

It'll climb the chapel, take the lead off the roof
Run along the aisle, nick the kettle and the pew
Sell the whole congregation for a dollar or two
Capital love

Who rings the bell in the middle of the night?
Sellining you insurance for a friend that's died
Flogging you flowers 'fore the tears have dried
Capital love

Criticise your plans as a communist dream
Serve you up nothing but utopian cream
Sell you back the water from your mountain stream
Capital love!

Who shot Martin Luther King?
Who shot JR?
Who got JFK in the sights and blew him outta the car?

Who the hell shot John Lennon?
Who's gonna shoot Ringo and Paul?
Ten pound note, dollar bill, capital shot them all

Grab you at the airport like you're up at the shops
Charge you five pounds, sell you last night's slops
Try to clean your window every time your car stops
Capital love

That's how they'll treat your Jane and Jack
Chance to invest and get a little bit back
Turn the whole town into two-bed flats
Capital love

Move the Indians in where the cowboys build
Make you feel guilty about the oil they spilled
Try to get you sponsoring a leopard they killed
Capital love

Who shot Martin Luther King?
Who shot JR?
Who got JFK in the sights and blew him outta the car?

Who the hell shot John Lennon?
Who's gonna shoot Ringo and Paul?
Ten pound note, dollar bill, capital shot them all

It takes your favourite singer before they die
Leave every tape running, for the hurt you buy
Dig the bastard up, record the cry
Capital love, capital love, capital love

Who put Reagan in a bullet-proof vest?
Who X-marked the spot on Malcom X
The same cold caller, or unwanted text?
Capital love, capital love, capital love

Capital love, love, love
Capital love, love, love
Capital love, love, love

Capital love
Capital love
Capital love
Capital love

Capital love
