Add It Up

Ray Davies, released on Give the People What They Want, © Davray Music Ltd. 1981

.

The first time that I saw you, you were modestly waiting for a bus

Now you're driving around in hired limousines

And you talk so upper class.

.

The cost is high, but it's not the only price you ultimately pay

Add it up, you might have got some money

But you lost me on the way

.

Add it up, oh

Add it up, oh

Add it up, oh

Add it up, oh

.

Ah, Gucci, Gucci, Gucci

Cartier, Cartier

Gucci, Gucci, Gucci

.

Add it up,

You multiplied and multiplied but what's it leading to?

Add it up,

The only thing subtracted is the love I had for you

So add it up, oh

Add it up, oh

Add it up, oh

Add it up, oh

.

Symbols of perversion and insanity

Symbols of social immorality

Symbols of economic cruelty

Symbolize all what you did to me

.

Ah, Gucci, Gucci, Gucci

Cartier, Cartier

Gucci, Gucci, Gucci

Cartier, Cartier

.

Money can't cover up the fact you're getting older every day

And you can't disguise your sad little eyes that give your loneliness away

.

Add it up, oh

Add it up, oh

Add it up, oh

[repeat]

.
