I live in the Merchant City, drive 4x4
I eat M & S, it tastes of nothing
Oh I taste of nothing
I am the New Scottish Gentry
Anglified vowels, sub London thoughts
I am the New Scottish Gentry
Anglified vowels, sub London thoughts

So I'm shopping, shopping for blood
Oh I'm shopping, shopping for blood
So I'm shopping, shopping for blood
Oh I'm shopping, shopping for...

It's leather for leisure and a velcro for sport
It's a first appearance and a new suit for court
It's leather for leisure and a velcro for sport
It's a first appearance and a new suit for court

I am the New Scottish Gentry
Anglified vowels, sub London thoughts
I am the New Scottish Gentry
Anglified vowels, sub media thoughts

So I'm shopping, shopping for blood
Oh I'm shopping, shopping for blood
So I'm shopping, shopping for blood
Oh I'm shopping, shopping for...

It's leather for leisure and a velcro for sport
It's a first appearance and a new suit for court
It's leather for leisure and a velcro for sport
It's a first appearance and a new suit for court
