THE GOSPEL FOR THE COMMON GOOD - JIM WALLIS IN BELFAST; Fitzroy, August 28th, 7.30
ALL THINGS ALL AT ONCE; Tired Pony and Northern Ireland's Deep Divide

MEDITATION ON SHOPPING (Imagine a Saw Doctors tune)

Kildare Shopping Village

Call it Bank Helliday Monday

At a Shopping Village in Kildare

All Saints and True Religion

It would make a holy man swear

There’s a jacket down to 289

It sure would make me natty

With my special 10% discount card

That’s... 35 cents off my Latte.

 

It’s just labels that they’re selling

Makes me feel that we’ve been bought

They would need to make us feel real good

Cos they’re costing an awful lot

These labels that they’re selling

Make me feel that we’ve been bought.

 

Donna Karan, that's from New York

My daughter’s in Juicy Couture

The prices of the eau de toilette

Well something smells for sure

Jack Wills, well that is English

My wife calls him John Willis

Him I know from East Belfast

And I wish we were drinking Guinness

 

It’s just labels that they’re selling

Makes me feel that we’ve been bought

They would need to make us feel real good

Cos they’re costing an awful lot

These labels that they’re selling

Make me feel that we’ve been bought.
