"Love for sale" as written by and David Byrne....
I was born in a house with the television always on
Guess I grew up too fast
And I forgot my name
We're in cities at night and we got time on our hands.
So leave the driving to us.
And it's the real thing.

And you're rolling
In the blender
With me.
And I can love you
Like a color
TV.

Now love is here
C'mon and try it
I got love for sale
Got love for sale
And now love is here
C'mon and try it
Got love for sale,
Got love for sale.

You can put your lipstick all over my designer jeans.
I'll be a video for you.
If you turn my dial.
You can cash my check if you go down to the bank
You get two for one
For a limited time.

Push my button...
The toast pops up
Love and money
Gettin' all
Mixed up
And now love is here
C'mon and try it.
I got love for sale
Got love for sale

Love is here
C'mon and try it
I got love for sale
I got Love
Love
Love
Love
Love
Love
Love
Love

    General CommentSupposedly an attempt by David Byrne to make a song composed of commercial jingles and slogans. Even if not entirely successful on that count, this is a really good song all the same. More goodness from the True Stories album, which is also an excellent film.

    Song MeaningSex, advertising, and pornography. Not much difference if it sells what they are pushing.

    General CommentJust the other day I was walking through Walmart thinking about how backwards and weird our economy is. We have a box with a picture of a chicken that wouldn't even fit in the box. I know that inside is a baggie with some powder in it. The foods not even there. You just take it home, add water, microwave it, and it's "food". Does anyone else see how backwards that is?
