The Acquisitive Blues Lyrics

The more you get, the more you keep on wanting,
More and ever more stuff
Having it all's supposed to make you happy,
But it's never enough
The more you earn, the more they tax,
No wonder folk get heart attacks,
You need to find a way to lose
The Acquisitive Blues.

You're already in a hole, stop digging!
What are you doing it for?
Time for the rest of your life to begin
Before you can't take any more.

Look at you now, running round your treadmill!
You can't ever relax.
However hard you try, you'll never paper
Over all of the cracks.
You need to stop - and unwind
See if you find peace of mind
Nobody makes you have to choose
The Acquisitive Blues.

Do you really have to do it?
Is it really worth what you pay?
After all, you can only sleep in one bed,
And eat three meals a day.

Are you content to carry on just working
For the rest of your days?
Something in life could fire you with a passion
That would set you ablaze!
Just be content with what you've got,
Get out before you lose the plot.
Go for it now and just refuse
The Acquisitive Blues.

When you've got no more to give
Don't you wonder what you're living for?
Don't you wonder what you're living for?
Don't leave it until
You can't take any more,
You can't take any more.

The more you get, the more you keep on wanting,
More and ever more stuff
Having it all's supposed to make you happy,
But it's never enough
The more you earn, the more they tax,
No wonder folk get heart attacks,
You need to find a way to lose
The Acquisitive Blues.
