"Gift Horse" as written by Jonathan Edward Hoadley Foster-moore and Luke Michael Haines....
They're digging up human remains
In Notting Hills
Behind the screens, behind the wall
In our backgarden

Don't you know when you're well off?
Don't you know when times are good?

I just want to be loved
I just want to be loved
I just want to be loved
I just want to be loved

They're asking questions door to door
Our friends in neighbours
They're piecing it together now
In perfect order

Don't you know when you're well off?
Make the best of English weather
Sort the roses 'round the door
We'll be growing old together

I just want to be loved
I just want to be loved
I just want to be loved
I just want to be loved

Don't you know when you're well off?
Don't look a gift horse in the mounts

I just want to be loved
I just want to be loved
I just want to be loved
I just want to be loved
I just want to be loved
I just want to be loved
I just want to be loved (I just want to be loved)
I just want to be loved (I just want to be...)
I just want to be loved (They're digging up human remains)
I just want to be loved (In Notting Hills) (I just want to be...)
I just want to be loved (Behind the screens, behind the wall)
I just want to be loved (In our backgarden) (I just want to be...)
I just want to be loved (They're digging up human remains)
I just want to be loved (In Notting Hills) (I just want to be...)
I just want to be loved (Behind the screens, behind the wall)
I just want to be loved (In Notting Hills) (I just want to be...)

In Notting Hill

    General Commentthis song references michael abdul malik, a racist and black supremacist who [though he was never convicted] killed two people in the seventies. their bodies were found in his garden of his house in the notting hill district.
    malik deliberately sought out young upper middle class white people who were easily influenced by "causes" to support. his victims knew what they were getting involved with.
    so this song is abouut the naivety of youth and the ridiculous and deadly lengths that some will go through in just "wanting to be loved".
