Black Market
Sneak around the corner
Black Market
Sneak around the corner
Come! I'll show you things you cannot get elsewhere
Come! Make with the offers and you'll get your share.
Black Market
Laces for the missis, chewing gum for kisses.
Got some broken down ideals? Like wedding rings?
Tiptoe. Trade your things.

I'll trade you for your candy
Some georgeous merchandise
My camera. It's a dandy
Six by nine - just your size
You want my porcellain figure?
A watch? A submarine?
A Rembrandt? Salami? Black lingerie from Wien?
I'll sell my goods
Behind the screen.
No ceiling, no feeling. A very smooth routine
You buy my goods, and boy my goods are keen.

You like my first edition?
It's yours, that's how I am.
A simple definition
You take art, I take spam.
To you for your "K" ration: my passion and maybe
An inkling, a twinkling or real sympathy
I'm selling out - take all I've got!
Ambitions! Convictions! The works!
Why not? Enjoy my goods, for boy my goods
Are hot!
