Labi Siffre lyrics : "Sensible Betrayal In The City"

Sensible betrayal in the city
He says don't you know that love is a lie
Talk to me of sex and I'll believe it

Talk to me of love and it's goodbye
Surely you believe in market forces?
Price is what the market will bear

Talk to me of sex and I can cost it
Talk to me of love I won't be there


When you stumble I will be there
Lift you up and make you smile
And in this world so often unfair

Faithful I'll be at your side
Love may not be enough to live on
But without love you just survive

Mr. Scrooge he learned this lesson:
Without love you're dead inside


Take more give less
Money motivation
Ah that's no success

It's a rotten nation
Who'll clean up the mess
You can't buy salvation

Ah, the children can guess
Yes yes!


Take more give less
Money motivation
Ah that's no success

It's a rotten nation
Who'll clean up the mess
You can't buy salvation

Ah, the children can guess
Yes yes!


Sensible betrayal in the city
He says don't you know that love is a lie?
Talk to me of sex and I'll believe it

Talk to me of love and it's goodbye

Surely you believe in market forces?

Love is stronger still than passion
Price is what the market will bear
May be more than some can bear

Talk to me of sex and I can cost it
Love the greatest song imagine
Talk to me of love I won't be there

When you need me I will be there

Sensible betrayal in the city

Through the years your love has saved me
He says don't you know that love is a lie?
I don't ask the reason why

Talk to me of sex and I'll believe it
Love is real there is no maybe
Talk to me of love and it's goodbye

Love you til the day I die.

Surely you believe in market forces

Through the years your love has saved me
Price is what the market will bear
I don't ask the reason why

Love is real there is no maybe [fade]
