1.  There's a lot of things you want but nothing that you need.

Money don’t make the world go 'round, it's good old fashioned greed.

Designer labels on your shirts, watch out they're not all fakes.

Those trainers set you back a bomb cost pennies to make.


Chorus:  So, you're not a slave to fashion. Well, let's put it to the test.

How can you be an individual dressed like all the rest?



2.  When the gurus say “This is the trend”, it's in the magazines.

Don't get left out in the cold, this season's blue is green.

So find yourself a taxi, get down to Harvey Nic's,

Step over all the homeless, “These people make me sick.”


Chorus:  No, you can't afford compassion, it's not what you do best:

A selfish individual, and just like all the rest.



Take a good hard look at yourself, and your little fantasy.

Haute couture and heroin chic like the dummies on your TV...

Is that what you want to be?



3.  (Guitar solo)

Those in the know, their hangers-on, and all the connoisseurs

Are telling you to get on board - the next big thing is fur.



Chorus:  No, you're not a slave to fashion, not in any way obsessed.

You're a lonely individual, but you always look your best.


Chorus:  No, you're not a slave to fashion, and nobody's impressed.

How can you be an individual dressed like all the rest?


Chorus:  No, you're not a slave to fashion. Well, let's put it to the test.

How can you be an individual dressed like all the rest?
