Pet Shop Boys – Love Etc.

Official music video by ‘Pet Shop Boys’ performing ‘Love Etc.’. Taken from the album ‘Yes‘.

Lyrics:

Boy, it’s tough
getting on in the world
when the sun doesn’t shine
and a boy needs a girl
It’s about getting out of a rut
you need luck
but you’re stuck
and you don’t know how

Don’t have to be
a big bucks Hollywood star
Don’t have to drive
a super car to get far
Don’t have to live
a life of power and wealth
Don’t have to be
beautiful but it helps
Don’t have to buy
a house in Beverly Hills
Don’t have to have
your daddy paying the bills
Don’t have to live
a life of power and wealth
Don’t have to be
beautiful but it helps

You need more than a big blank cheque to be a lover or
a Gulfstream jet to fly you door to door
somewhere chic on another shore
You need more, you need more, you need more
You need more, you need more, you need more, you need love

Too much of anything
is never enough
Too much of everything
is never enough

Boy, it’s tough
getting on in the world
when the sun doesn’t shine
and a boy needs a girl
It’s about getting out of a rut
you need luck
Boy, you’re stuck
and you don’t know how

Don’t have to be
a big bucks Hollywood star
Don’t have to drive
a super car to get far
Don’t have to wear
a smile much colder than ice
Don’t have to be
beautiful but it’s nice

You need more than
the Gerhard Richter hanging on your wall
a chauffeur-driven limousine on call
to drive your wife and lover to a white tie ball
You need more, you need more, you need more
You need more, you need love

I believe
that we can achieve
the love that we need
I believe
call me naive
that love is for free

Don’t have to be
a big bucks Hollywood star
Don’t have to drive
a super car to get far
Don’t have to live
a life of power and wealth
Don’t have to be
beautiful but it helps
beautiful but it helps
beautiful but it helps
