  • Ooh, ooh ooh
    Ooh, ooh ooh

    There once were eyes if I could not see through
    She said I don't know
    What it means to be complicit
    Be complicit

    Need to believe
    You got to understand
    Need to believe
    You got to understand

    You mustn't want the things you can't have
    It's only worth something if you work for it
    You mustn't want the things you can't have
    It's only worth something if my name's on it

    I saw how hard daddy worked for his money
    Daddy loves women and he believes in family
    Need to believe, you gotta understand
    Need to believe

    You mustn't want the things you can't have
    It's only worth something if you work for it
    You mustn't want the things you can't have
    It's only worth something if my name's on it

    She said
    It's clear to me
    That things are not
    Just freely given to me
    Given to me

    She said
    It's clear to me
    Things are not
    Just freely given to me
    Given to me (Given to me)
    Given to me

    In the morning daddy wants me in his room
    it's where we get together
    It's not true that daddy calls my name
    in stormy weather

    Ooh, ooh ooh
    Ooh, ooh ooh

    Daddy loves women and he believes in family (In family)
    He and I know the worst sins are lust and avarice (Lust and avarice)
    Now we're a long way from home (A long way from home)
    Now we're a long way from home

    Someone said that we can make a better version of ourselves
    You need to know I'll do my best for you (Do my best for you)
    You need to know I'll do my best for you Writer/s: Andy Gill, John Sterry, Thomas McNeice, Tobias Humble
