Baby thought she really needed that sofa
Baby thought she really wanted that dress
Baby thought she really had to have two cars
Baby thought she really had to say yes

But the more she possessed,
The more she'd slide into debt
And the more she possessed
The less she owned of herself

Baby thought she really needed that hairstyle
Baby thought she really had to say yes
Baby really needed acres of carpets
Thought she'd be happy if she had larger breasts

Everybody said you can't live without them
Everybody said you have to say yes
So Baby spent her everything on this lifestyle
But it's a lifestyle that doesn't exist

And the more she possessed
The more she'd slide into debt
And the more she possessed
The less she owned of herself

Yes, the more we possess
The more we are in debt
And the more we possess
The less we own of ourselves
