Ed Harcourt - Do As I Say Not As I Do Lyrics

Now the fat cats are crying over wasted milk
And the trees are bending over to make room for the moon
Put a black on the house of cards they built
There's a ship on the horizon with a melting 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

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

Why should we listen to you
Why should we listen to you

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

You should probably actually read the lyrics on the CD before posting what you think they are on a lyrics website. Edfan is also wrong. The lyrics are on the album. The real lyrics are as follows: 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 the house of cards they built 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 Oh to all the people that I might have offended You probably needed it, so take your cake and eat it Why should we listen to you Why should we listen to you Do as I say, not as I do Do as I say, not as I do
