  • We watch you
    Your expert double exes
    It's just like you
    To paint those whiter fences

    It's so polite, it's so polite
    It's offensive, it's offensive
    It's so unright, it's so unright
    It's a technical, accept it

    But who needs love when there's Law And Order?
    And who needs love when there's Southern Comfort?
    And who needs love at all?

    We stalk you
    Your expert, double exes
    We oxidized you in your sleep
    There's no exit, there's no exit

    You're on a roll, you're on a roll
    No one gets it, no one gets it
    Your honor, no, your honor
    Can't you protect us? Protect us

    But who needs love when there's Law And Order?
    And who needs love when there's Southern Comfort?
    And who needs love when the sandwiches are wicked
    And they know you at the Mac Store?

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, I'm so excited
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, the blacks and beat kids

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, I'm getting frightened
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Someday, someday Leeds United

    La ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba
    Ba, da da, da, da
    Da da, da, da, da, da, da, da
    Da, da da, da

    Bugsy Malone came to carry you home
    And they're taking you all to the doctor
    Verbally vices, all sugary and spices
    It's nice but it's not what I'm after

    Sure, I admire you, sure, you inspire me
    But you've been not getting back so
    I'll wait at the Sainsbury's, counting my change
    Making bank on the upcoming roster

    And we'll stop you
    Your expert double exes
    Oh yeah, big stack hold of extra care
    Two exes, oh, oh, oh

    That never talking thing you do
    Is effective, it's effective
    And your shoulder's icy cold
    Oh, than a death wish, than a death wish

    But who needs love when there's Law And Order?
    And who needs love when there's Dukes Of Hazzard?
    And who needs love when the sandwiches are wicked
    And they know you at the Mac Store?

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    I'm so excited
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    The blacks and beat kids

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    I'm so excited
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    When I think about Leeds United

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Ouch, I'm getting frightened
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    The blacks, the blacks, the blacks and beat kids

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    It's so exciting
    Someday, someday, someday, someday
    Someday, someday Leeds United Writer/s: Amanda Palmer
