Marc Almond – The User lyrics

Here he comes with a snake on his tongue
Dripping with gold from bad deeds well done
Got a silk new shirt
And a line in stick
Hes drop dead gorgeous with a cocaine kick
Hes a sharp dresser made in heaven
(that's his style)
Hes a sticky salamander with a hollywood smile
Theres a gleam in his eyes
When hes feeding you his lies
Believe him: hes a saint with a hundred alibis
And hes aiming for the jackpot
He knows its best to wait
Softly softly gets the monkey
That's the way he operates

Hes a user
Hes a user (the user the user)

[Chorus:]
User
Hes a user (the user the user)
User
Hes a user (the user the user)

And if you meet the user
Then youre gonna be the loser
Tough
Had enough?
No?
Well that's tough

Here he comes with a girl on each arm
Weaving webs of deceipt with a barrel load of charm
Youve got to watch your wallet if he comes within reach
Hes as slippy as a barbers comb
Hes gonna suck you like a leech
Dishing all the compliments
He wont leave you alone
He wants to be your confidante
He wants to get inside your home
Hes doing very nicely for a bit of a rogue
But its a long way from the gutter to the cover of vogue

Girls all want to wed him
Gay guys want to bed him
But those who he screwed up on the way
Only want to dead him

Hes a user
Hes a user (the user the user)

[Chorus:]
User

Tall walking
Smooth talking
Looking for some good luck
Back slapping
Back stabbing
Looking for a fast buck
Tall walking
Smooth talking
Looking for some good luck
Back slapping
Back stabbing
Looking for a star fuck

Do do do do do
Do do do do

Do do do do do
Do do do do

Do do do do do
Do do do do

Do do do do do
Do do do do

He says
In this life youve got get what you can
If you want to get along
You got to do what you must
Its a mutual trust
Ooh ooh got to get what youre due
Its dog eat dog
Its do what you do
If youre not using them
Hah! Theyre using you!

[Chorus:]
User

[Chorus:]
User

[Chorus:]
User

Hes a user
And an abuser
And youre the loser
Cos hes gonna smooze ya
Hes a user, abuser, a smoozer
(youre) the loser
User user
And youre the loser
An abuser
Hes gonna smooze ya
Had enough?
Yeah?
That's tough!
That's tough!
