Buy now, pay as you go,/ Buy now, say hello./ You can put a mortgage on your life/ To enter Shoppers' Paradise./ A trade-in for your dignity./ A lovely colour console TV./ To watch and cherish as the days slip by,/ And dream of the things that money can buy.

Brushed chrome shit, plastic crap,/ My life and my vision is worth more than that./ Plate glass ghetto, shopping spree,/ I'm no fucking commodity./Lusting for objects, white wall refrigerator./ Cut off your fingers and buy a vibrator./ Get them while it lasts, your time is running out./ A new mink for christmas, that's what life's about.

A new tank, a new bomb, awaits you in the store. Is life all that shallow that you’re reaching our for more?/ Start planning now for a family plot./ A satin-lined bunker where your corpses can rot./ Well there's nothing for sale here, no day-glo gore./ And I ain't no waxed-up showroom floor whore./ I don’t need carrots dangled in front of my eyes./ Man made pre-fab, polyester lies.

Or sexy glossy adverts left on my mat./ I live with my needs I don't need that./ Don't need a yacht to take a cruise./ Don't need a telephone in the loo./ Won't barter my soul for a rip-joint sale./ Excess is just another noveau jail./ Don't want to grow fat off the fat of the land,/ Or to choke on the greed of public command.

Work thirty years with one foot in the grave./ Possession junkie, consumer slave./ If money buys freedom it's already spent./ Your object's the subject of my contempt./ Buy now, pay as you go,/ Buy now, say hello./ Bye bye/Bye bye.
