If you were seen as goods

I'd buy you at the market

see the sale price on you

and put you in my basket

take you to the tradesman

who'd say "cor blimey guv,

you know, you get what you pay for

and for that you wont get love."

I'd have thought you were a bargain

and I wouldnt even haggle

but if I were a mystic

I would have for the hassle.

The trader could have dolled you up

with tassles bright and gay

but if I knew what I know now

"Youre jokin'" I would say.

"A few quid to feel miserable?

I could just watch Shindlers list!

A few quid for bland interior?

Think I'll give it a miss."

I deserve better

and will go more upmarket now,

be more fussy with my window shopping

no second rate hand me downs.

Go back to your first owner

or to the bargain bin

theres more treasure than silver and gold mate

happiness comes from within.

I'd rather be alone

than insecure and unfulfilled

I'd rather be alone

than with someone of weak wills.

So next time I'll think twice before I make it to the till

am I just buying crap again

when I should save for better still.

I am a misunderstood genius.
