Citizen Fish – Will Swap lyrics

If I want a bargain, I avoid the high street shops
I check the local papers to see who needs what I've got
And who has what I can't afford when I can't afford a lot
Someone else in this position, O. K. Let's do a swap!

Will swap. What have you got?
Ain't got no money -- Don't own it, can't loan it
Ain't got no credit -- Won't get it, yeah, forget it
Will swap this poverty for all the things I need

Things you've never seen before are left outside to rot
There's food & furniture in skips and most are still unlocked
Surplus raw materials are shelves & building blocks
If you don't want it, someone will, why not do a swap?

Will swap. What have you got?
Ain't got no money -- Don't own it, can't loan it
Ain't got no credit -- Won't get it, yeah, forget it
Will swap this property for all I really need

Will swap. Homelessness for squats
Hunger for surplus tons of food
Anger for a reason, so few have got so much
With so many hopelessly demanding
"Will do anything" -- "Anything will do"

So here's the barter system on the pages at the back
Will swap commercial interest for a rummage in your sack
Will swap your C. C. T. V. For an unrecorded chat
We'll swap a few priorities and watch the wall street crash

Will swap. What have you got?
Ain't got no money -- Don't own it, can't loan it
Ain't got no credit -- Won't get it, yeah, forget it
Will swap this poverty for all I really need
