Claude-Michel Schönberg The Sewers - Dog Eats Dog Lyrics

Here's a hint of gold
Stuck into a tooth
Pardon me, M'sieur
You won't be using this no more,
Shouldn't be too hard to sell.
Add it to the pile
Add it to the stock
Here among the sewer rats
A breath away from Hell
Y'get accustomed to the smell.

Well somebody's got to clean 'em up, my friends
Bodies on the highway
Law and order upside down
Someone's got to collect their odds and ends
As a service to the town!

Here's a tasty ring
Pretty little thing
Wouldn't want to waste it
That would really be a crime,
Thank you sir, I'm in your debt.
Here's another toy
Take it off the boy
His heart's no longer going
And he's lived his little time
But his watch is ticking yet!

Well someone's got to clean them up, my friends
Before the little harvest
Disappears into the mud
Someone's got to collect their odds and ends
When the gutters run with blood.

It's a world where the dogs eat the dogs
Where they kill for the bones in the street
And God in His Heaven
He don't interfere
'Cos he's as dead as the stiff at my feet.
I raise my eyes to see the heavens
And only the moon looks down,
The harvest moon shines down!
