Cunts Are Still Running The World

I love this.

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,
Cunts are still running the world.
Now the working classes are obsolete,
They are surplus to societies needs,
So let ”˜em all kill each other,
And get it made overseas.
That’s the word don’t you know,
From the guys thats running the show,
Lets be perfectly clear boys and girls,
Cunts are still running the world,
Cunts are still running the world.
Oh feed your children on Cray fish and Lobster tails,
Find a school near the top of the league,
In theory I respect your right to exist,
I will kill ya if you move in next to me,
Ah it stinks, it sucks, it’s anthropologically unjust,
But the takings are up by a third, Oh So
Cunts are still running the world,
Cunts are still running the world.
Your free market is perfectly natural,
Or 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 rights but don’t imagine that it’s heard, Oh no no,
Cunts are still running the world,
Cunts are still running the world.

    Actually he problem is that Cunts Arent Running the World…
    Calling these Dick Heads Cunts is an insult to my vagina…
    My vagina could run the world with more insight than these pricks!!!

    I had a sus picions that the cunts were in charge then you proved me right i am not alone. thankee me old mush.

    Beautiful comment. I support you 100%. Its ridiculous that Jarvis Cocker would use Cunt in any negative sense, especially when its the repressive pricks that are running the world. He had the opportunity to make a bold and strong statement, and failed upon perpetuating the misogyny that plagues the very world we live in. In Solidarity Vagina Warrior.
    Vag Love,

    Actaully, lets remove the association with the vagina and find a new way of expressing that which we know to be wrong, we could still get the message across if we changed a few lines in the song.
    The message is clear, and its time is near that demons are running the world. But the word demon doesn’t really pack a punch does it ?

    Great song from a great man! Saw him live and he played it – was quite funny. He has a stack of music better than this tune though.
    Jarvis is God!
