Poor Cow  (Album Version)

Poor Cow (Album Version)

Peter Bjorn and John

When all is gone, and things go wrong
We don't need them anymore
The artifacts and all they lack
We don't need them anymore

I don't have the means, and so it seems
For now I can't participate
But I've waited long
Now the dollar's strong again
I still can't participate

When we don't consume it seems we are immune
To all of the thoughts they sell
You know as well as I, that's a lie

'Cause I want to spend, I want to spend
In a never-ending story, but it always ends
I want to spend, I want to spend
In a never-ending story, but it always ends

And when I die, the angels will try
To count all my belongings
To measure my worth, pure gold, solid dirt
To see if I'm worth keeping

But the house I rent and the car I drive
I'm sorry but they ain't mine
You know as well as I, that's no lie

'Cause I want to spend, I want to spend
In a never-ending story, but it always ends
I want to spend, I want to spend
In a never-ending story, but it always ends
And it always ends, and it always ends
