(sung by flash and his cronies in their den)I spy with my little eyeAnything here that I can buy.I see a little thatched cottageLooking so neatWith compulsory purchase we can buy it up cheap.Then we’ll pull up the floor boards,Knock down the walls,Rock the foundations,Until the house falls.Like a pack of cards,Crashing to the ground.Then we’ll build a rowOf identical boxesAnd sell them all off at treble the profits.Demolition.The deeds are in my pocket,I’ve got a contract in my hand.An opportunity for luxury living.I’ll arrange the mortgageTo be repaid a hundred percent.I can’t wait around so make your decision.We’ll buy up all the cottagesAnd every house and every street,Until we’ve got everything we need.Every town in the vicinity,Every farm and village green.We’re gonna buy up everything,Then it’s demolition.Demolition. demolition.Two up, two down,It hasn’t got a garden,But it’s got a lovely patio.Stainless steel kitchen sink,Gas fired central heating,Whaaa -- specifically designed for modern-day living,Nothing’s permanent and nothing lasts,We’ve sold all the houses so put ’em up fast.We’re gonna buy up this townAnd pull it all down.How I love to hear the demolition soundOf concrete crashing to the ground.Demolition.It’s time to make some money,It’s time to get rich quick.It’s the wonderful world of capitalism.I’ve got to make a profit,I’ve got to satisfy my greed,It’s my faith and my religion,Demolition. demolition. demolition.And we’ll buy up the towns,And we’ll knock ’em all downBuild a brand new world of our own.(repeat)
