Do As I Say Not As I Do

Now the fat cats are crying over wasted milk
And the trees are bending over to make room for the moon
Put a plague on on the house of cards they've build
There's a ship on the horizon with a menacing metal harpoon

Do as I say, not as I do
Do as I say, not as I do

Vice is a virtue with cameras and curfews
Little scaremongers of impending doom
Political medusas make us stare like statues
Empty all the pockets of the victims of the baby boom

Do as I say, not as I do
Why should we listen to you?
Do as I say, not as I do

Oh to all the people that I might have offended
It wasn't that intended I hope we can amend it

Do as I say, not as I do

Oh to all the people that I might have offended
You probably needed it, so take your cake and eat it

When we were the bright sparks
Firing off the circuits in the right parts
Flicking every switch, blasting holes right through your blood clots
Swimming through the red cells that bind me to you

If we hit the ice age
Should we start again or turn the next page
Picking up a pick-axe, playing harps like a ribcage
Shaking off the cobwebs that keep me from you

Do as I say, not as I do
Do as I say, not as I do, ooh

Oh to all the people that I might have offended
You probably needed it, so take your cake and eat it

When we were the bright sparks
Firing off the circuits in the right parts
Flicking every switch, blasting holes right through your blood clots
Swimming through the red cells that bind me to you

If we hit the ice age
Should we start again or turn the next page
Picking up a pick-axe, playing harps like a ribcage
Shaking off the cobwebs that keep me from you

Do as I say, not as I do (x2)
Why should we listen to you (x2)
Do as I say, not as I do (x2)
