lyrics

Leather-bound valuables
Tucked into front and back pockets
Let's make a day of it, poppet
Dipping some wallets

I knew that you'd get sad about it
There's no need, it happens all the time
A point of honour must be settled
And this can become a life of crime

These master criminals
Must have somebody who flatters
If that’s you, my pretty poppet
None of it matters

I knew that you'd get sad about it
There's no need, it happens all the time
A gentlemanly row develops
It can become a life of crime

What are we good at?
We're good at everything!
We're good at medicine, war and astronomy
What are we bad at?
We are unable to see
We deserted some thrones foolishly

I knew that you'd get sad about it
There was no need, it happens all the time
As television demonstrated
We can resume our lives of crime
