Jarvis Cocker’s latest video “Running The World”

Running The World

The lyrics…

Well, did you hear there’s a natural order?
Those most deserving will end up with the most.
That the cream cannot help but always rise up to the top?
Well I say… shit floats.
  
If you thought things had changed,
Friend, you’d better think again.
Bluntly put in the fewest of words:
  
Cunts are still running the world
  
Now the Working classes are obsolete
They are surplus to society’s needs.
So let ’em all kill each other
and get it made overseas.
  
That’s the word, don’t you know?
From the guys that’s running the show.
Let’s be perfectly clear boys and girls:
  
Cunts are still running the world
  
Oh feed your children on crayfish and lobster tails
Find a school near the top of the league.   
In theory, I respect your right to exist
I will kill you if you move in next to me.
  
Ah, it stinks, Yeah, it sucks,
It’s anthropologically unjust,
Oh but the takings are up by a third,   
Cunts are still running the world
  
The free market is perfectly natural,
Do you think that I’m some kind of dummy?
It’s the ideal way to order the world;
Fuck the morals does it make any money?
  
And if you don’t like it? Then leave
or use your right to protest on the street.
Yeah, use your right but don’t imagine that it’s heard
Not whilst cunts are still running the world

Cunts are still running the world
