I Spy
Music: Pulp; Lyrics: Jarvis Cocker
I spy a boy, I spy a girl
I spy the worst place in the world, in the whole wide world
Oh you didn't do bad, you made it out
I'm still stuck here, oh but I'll get out
Oh yeah, I'll get out

Can't you see a walks among you seeing through your petty lives
Do you think I do these things for real?
I do these things just so I survive
And you know I will survive
It may look to the untrained eye
I'm sitting on my arse all day and I'm biding my time until I take you all on.
My Lords and Ladies. I will prevail I cannot fail. Cause I spy

Oh I've got your numbers, taken notes, and all the ways your minds work
I've studied. And your mind's just the same as mine except that you're just clever swines
You never let your masks slip, you never admit to it, you're never hurried. Oh no no no
And every night I hold my plan how I'll get my satisfaction
How I will blow your paradise away away away ooh
Cause I spy

It's just like in the old days
I used to compose my own critical notices in my head
The crowd gasps at Cocker's masterful control of the bicycle
Skilfully avoiding the dog turd next to the corner shop
Imagining a blue plaque above the place I first ever touched a girl's chest
But hold on, you've got to wait for the best
You see you should take me seriously. Very seriously indeed
Cause I've been sleeping with your wife for the past sixteen weeks
Smoking your cigarettes, drinking your brandy, messing up the bed you chose together
And in all that time I just wanted you to come home unexpectedly one afternoon
And catch us at it in the front room

You see I spy for a living and I specialise in revenge
On taking the things I know will cause you pain
I can't help it, I was dragged up
My favourite park's a car park, grass is something you smoke, birds is something you shag
Take your year in Provence and shove it up your arse
Your Ladbroke Grove looks turn me on, yeah
With roach burns in designer dresses and thousands of tiny dryness lines beating
Beating a path to the corner of your eyes
And every night I hatch my plan, it's not a case of woman v man
It's more a case of haves against haven'ts and I just happen to have got what you need
Just exactly what you need, yeah
La la la la la la la la la la, In the midnight hour
La la la la la la la la la la, I will come to you, I will come to you
I will take you from this sickness, dinner parties and champagne
I'll hold your body and make it sing again
Come on - sing again, let's sing again, oh yeah
Cause I spy, yes,

I spy, ssss. I spy a boy and I spy a girl.
I spy the chance to change the world, to change your world.
