      The Kinks - Second-Hand Car Spiv Música y Letra

      [Sung by Spiv, Flash & Floosies]
      
      Spiv: I was born a slum gutter infantile,
      Brute-force educated, delinquent juvenile.
      I am a product of mass produced factory fodder,
      Streets full of tenement blocks, rat infested filth and squalor.
      I left school, went straight on the dole
      And unemployment's no enjoyment,
      Welfare State owned my mind and my body and my soul.
      So I worked my way up to be a second-hand car spiv,
      But don't judge me harshly because I'm just a slum kid.
      I built up my business with a quick wit and fist,
      So don't double-cross me or my hoods will dissect you
      With their black jacks and shiv.
      Slum kids never get a break, they've got to fight their way up.
      Wheel and deal, beg and steal,
      Sweat blood to earn a buck.
      I didn't want to work on the factory floor,
      I wasn't content, I wanted more
      Than to be a slave of a lathe,
      Work all day and go home bored.
      So a second- hand car spiv was what I became.
      I built an empire because I used my brains.
      
      [Chorus:] He was a second-hand car spiv up from the slums,
      So don't judge him harshly because he's just a slum kid.
      Then he moved into property, stocks and shares,
      
      Spiv: And into high finance and you've got to agree
      That running a multi-million corporation
      Sure beats selling cars second-hand.
      
      [Chorus:] Once he sold old worn out heaps to the punters on the street,
      
      Spiv: Now I'm in control of the country as a whole,
      And the world is at my feet.
      
      [Chorus:] The world is at his feet.
      
      Spiv: Power, power, I've got power oozing out of me,
      And when you think of all the things I've done
      It says a lot for one
      Who worked his way up from the streets.
      Yes I'm a second-hand car spiv.
      Do a deal, buy and sell,
      It's my trade, I know it well.
      Make a sale, ring the bell
      And let the suckers go to hell.
      Bank the profits, count the change
      Another sucker comes your way.
      Life is a crooked game,
      And slum kids never change.
