I dust my pictures every day
I see them now in different way
I steal your books and you steal mine
I steal your books and you steal mine
I dust my pictures every day
I see them now in different way
I steal your books and you steal mine
I steal your books and you steal mine
we have the pleasure that we find
we have the pleasure that we find

I don't want to eat all I see
I don't believe all that I read
life is too short
still we make a show
we are unhealthy and fragile
we are unhealthy and fragile

    General CommentThe last 4 lines were printed in the booklet which was sold together with the cassette "Pickpocket", the rest I've transcribed as I heard it. Morrissey fans will be interested to know that Linder said this in a 2004 interview: "At the moment, Morrissey and I both retire to bed with the poet Marianne Moore. We may be on different sides of the Atlantic but we know what makes for a good read. With Ludus I sang, "I steal your books and you steal mine". It was, of course, about him."
