"Born To Be Sold" as written by and Nicholas Christian Sayer....
From Elvis Presley to Marilyn
Cassius Clay to Billy the Kid

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

From Jackie O to J.F.K.
Little Richard and Lady Day

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Everyone played a different role

Baby they were born to be sold
They were born to be sold
They were born to be sold

Now all I know is all I see
And what I am I choose to be
I don't need no one to bleed for me
I'm gonna make my own history

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Here comes the news
Here comes the news
Baby, here comes the news, alright

I was born to be sold
All you hot shot, big buck
Sweet talking, side walking
Foot tapping, tail wagging
Back stabbing, money grabbing
Slaves of gold
I'm telling you, I don't need to be told
I cross my heart, rock my soul

Baby I was born to be sold
I was born to be sold
I was born to be sold
I was born to be sold

From Valentino to Fonteyne
Al Capone to John Wayne
From Harley D to Lenny Bruce
Harry Dean to Betty Blue
From Sister Sue to Judy Teen
Marty Wilde to Morrisey
From Johnny Rotten to Charlie Chaplin
Madonna Ciccone to Little Satnin
And back to Elvis and Marilyn
Sugar Ray and Billy the Kid
Jackie O J.F.K.
Little Richard and Lady Day

I was born to be sold
I was born to be sold
I was born to be sold
