Waste Not Want Not — The Pretenders

Take, take, take, takin’ what you don’t need
You’ll get, get, gettin’ what you don’t need
Stand back, take a look and take heed
All the children in god’s kingdom bleed
See the networks of concrete and steel
They’ve no mystery but what they reveal
Tells a story of a future that’s void
Of the beauty and the majesty that life on
Earth is meant to be

Talk, talk, talk, talk about the government
And not a word about political favour
Everything touched is my political choice
The life you take is your political voice
The sacred cows come crashing to their knees
Golden harvest reaped without intelligence
There’s no chance between the heavens and the seas
In a blood bath don’t laugh
Grab your piece of golden calf

Waste not want not pick it up
Waste not want not pick it up
Waste not want not pick it up
Waste not want not

Do unto others as you wish be done to you
There’s a million lies ’round everything true
You slaughter when you feast
You disrespect the beast
Make our beds and lie there, take your share

Waste not want not pick it up
Waste not want not pick it up
Waste not want not pick it up
Pick it up and eat it
Waste not want not

    Hi Colin. I love the rhythm of this. It accentuates the deeling in the words. And I get the deeling too. Can certainly join in on this one.
