about

A song for a consumer age.

lyrics

We’re walking in the park together
Some people smile and some never
Some give folk the stink-eye
And nobody knows why
We’d help them if we could but we’re not that clever
We’d help them if we could but we’re not that clever

We sit and gaze upon the ocean
The creatures in it have no notion
But they can tell we’re not the same
and we’re shadowy and strange
so they take our crumbs of bread with mixed emotion
they take our crumbs of bread with mixed emotion

Nothing’s Free, do do do do do do
Nothing’s Free ‘cept you and me

We pick wild berries when it’s sunny
Chestnuts and nettles in our tummies
But despite the stings and spikes
there’s no malice or dislike
Just like we’re in a world where there’s no money
Just like we’re in a world where there’s no money

We sit and gaze at the star clusters
Full of mystery and brain-busters
If there’s intelligence out there
do you have any to spare
we’ll take any crumbs of bread that you can muster
we’ll take any crumbs of bread that you can muster

Nothing’s Free, do do do do do do
Nothing’s Free ‘cept you and me
