My spirit's winging, my soul is free
I'm doing my drinking in good company
The music's screaming, my feet are flying
And everybody's laughing and nobody's crying

A sneak suspicion drags me down
A nagging feeling going round

Hearts for sale
Going cheap
And hearts for sale
Lover's leap

My belly's full, my glass is brimming
The women look so beautiful and I feel like singing

The voice of conscience, the voice of reason
Yacking in my plan, boy, I call it treason


Hearts for sale
They're going cheap
And hearts for sale
Blood runs deep


I'm losing my willpower
My blood's running cold
My body's on pause and
My mind's stuck on hold


What am I going to do about it?

A sneak suspicion, it drags me down
A nagging feeling going round

Hearts for sale
They're going cheap
And hearts for sale
Blood runs deep

Hearts for sale

I don't need no doctor, I need a deputation   (hearts for sale)
I tell you if you don't want my loving, you can just take my resignation   (hearts for sale)

Hearts for sale
Hearts for sale
Hearts for sale

I'm under the hammer
I'm a full time worker, baby, I'm a real body slammer   (hearts for sale)
