One day in the life of the lonely
Another day on the round about
What do they need
Somebody to love

One night in the life of the lonely
There's a miracle on the screen
What did they see
Somebody to love

He guarantees you instant glory
Get your money on the line

Gotta send me a plastic Jesus
There's a check in the mail today
That's what I need
Somebody to love

We just won't eat on Sunday
Gotta buy him a limousine
Somewhere to live
Somewhere to pray

Every penny from the people
Keeps the wolf outside the door
Shop around and find forgiveness for yourself
But he'll give you more

Holy father
Holy ghost
Who's the one who pays the most
Rock the cradle
Don't you cry
Buy another lullaby
Jack is nimble - Jack is quick
Pick your pocket - turn a trick
Slow and steady - He's got time
To commit another
TV crime

One day in the life of the lonely
Back again on the round about
What do they need
Somebody to love

One night in the life of the lonely
Another miracle on the screen
What did they see
Somebody to love again

A supermarket of salvation
Take a look inside the store
Shop around and find forgiveness for yourself
But he gives more

Holy father - Holy ghost
Who's the one who hurts you most
Rock the cradle
When you cry
Scream another lullaby

Jack be nimble - Jack be slick
Take the money - Get out quick
Slow and steady - So much time
To commit another
TV Crime - TV Crime
