about

Title track of "Not For Sale".

lyrics

you can buy a beer at the local store, buy a key to heaven’s door
buy a place at the head of a queue, buy something old and make it new
you can buy a vote for president, buy a house and save some rent
but let me now give you the mail, you can’t buy me, I’m not for sale

oh mama, oh mama, oh mama
all things have a price but hear me say:
if you want my soul there’ll be hell to pay


you can buy a bus or buy a car, buy a bike but you won’t go far
buy a jet and then set forth, first fly it south then fly it north
buy a heart if you got the dough, buy a mansion just for show
but let me now give you the mail, you can’t buy me, I’m not for sale


one fine day god made the earth, someone said “so what’s it worth
all this pain and dust and ash? Advertise and take the cash”
perhaps a soul cannot be sold, but the root of all evil is love of gold
all things have a price but hear me say,
if you want my soul there’ll be hell to pay



you can buy a ballet just for luck,
but be warned that a swan ain’t worth a duck
buy a yacht, if you get the best, you can sail it east or sail it west
you can buy a tank and go to war,
if you run out of foes - well, buy some more
but let me now give you the mail, you can’t buy me, I’m not for sale

oh mama, oh mama, oh mama
all things have a price but hear me say:
if you want my soul there’ll be hell to pay


you can buy a seat at a roulette wheel, buy some dope and make a deal
buy someone to make love to you, tie you up and whip you too
you can buy a gun or be a stud, keep the peace or shed some blood
all things have a price but hear me say,
if you want my soul there’ll be hell to pay
