"Add It Up" as written by and Davies....
The first time that I saw you, you were modestly waiting for a bus
Now you're driving around in hired limousines
And you talk so upper class.

The cost is high, but it's not the only price you ultimately pay
Add it up, you might have got some money
But you lost me on the way

Add it up, oh
Add it up, oh
Add it up, oh
Add it up, oh

Ah, Gucci, Gucci, Gucci
Cartier, Cartier
Gucci, Gucci, Gucci

Add it up,
You multiplied and multiplied but what's it leading to?
Add it up,
The only thing subtracted is the love I had for you
So add it up, oh
Add it up, oh
Add it up, oh
Add it up, oh

Symbols of perversion and insanity
Symbols of social immorality
Symbols of economic cruelty
Symbolize all what you did to me

Ah, Gucci, Gucci, Gucci
Cartier, Cartier
Gucci, Gucci, Gucci
Cartier, Cartier

Money can't cover up the fact you're getting older every day
And you can't disguise your sad little eyes that give your loneliness away

Add it up, oh
Add it up, oh
Add it up, oh

    General CommentObviously a kiss-off to a social-clawing, materialistic, gold digger. The song came out around the same time Ray's marriage with Chrissie Hynde was failing, but I doubt it's about her.

    Cool song.

    General CommentTo the above reply

    Firstly, Ray was never married to Chrissie Hynde

    And it's obvious that the song is just about someone who was poor and has then suddenly got lots of money, then doesn't bother with people anymore. The money's changed them and this person is materialistic
