"Kidnapping An Heiress" as written by Jonathan Edward Hoadley Foster-moore and Luke Michael Haines....
Born into money it's not a crime
You can fool the people all the time
Nine hundred dead in Jonestown
Rescued from a shopping mall
Heiress with a little girls soul
Do you think we'll make the papers?

And we're searching for your daughter
And we're searching for your daughter

On Saturday the childhood ends
Strange way to make new friends
She's lying in the basement
Black boy, white girl
Black girl with a blindfold
Which one will be your lover

And we're searching for your daughter
And we're searching for your daughter
(kidnapping an heiress)
(kidnapping an heiress)
(kidnapping an heiress)
(kidnapping an heiress)

Lock her up for sixty days
Change her hair, change her name
Smile for the camera
Friendships about trust
If we trust you then you're one of us
Live together, die for each other

And we're searching for your daughter
(kidnapping an heiress)
(kidnapping an heiress)
And we're searching for your daughter
(kidnapping an heiress)
(kidnapping an heiress)
(kidnapping an heiress)
(kidnapping an heiress)

Born into money it's not a crime
You can fool the people all the time
Nine hundred dead in jonestown
Get down, stay down
(put a bullet in your head)
It's only money
Smile for the camera

How could you not defend your honour?
(kidnapping an heiress)
(kidnapping an heiress)
And we think we've found your daughter
(kidnapping an heiress)
(kidnapping an heiress)
And we think we've found your daughter
(kidnapping an heiress)
(kidnapping an heiress)
(kidnapping an heiress)

    General CommentJonestown was a communal/religious settlement in Guyana in which 900 people committed mass murder-suicide following their leader, Jim Jones. Hence, the lines "900 dead in Jonestown," "get down, stay down, put a bullet in your head," "live together, die for each other."

    Yeah, I'm not sure, though, where the kidnapped heiress comes in...
