Big Sister

Sheep to the slaughter
Oh, this must be love
All your sons and daughters in a strangle hold with a kid glove
Eyes like saucers; oh, you think she's a dish
She is the blue chip that belongs to the big fish

Big sister will be watching over you
Sister see, sister do
She's got a safe bet
She's got you playing Russian Roulette
The sport of kings, the old queen's heart
The prince of darkness stole some tart
It's in the papers, it's in the charts
It's in the stop press before it all starts.

With a hammer on the slap and tickle under grisly garments
With all the style and finesse of the purchase of armaments
Compassion went out of fashion that's all your concern meant
Sweat it out for thirty seconds on home improvements

Big sister will be watching over you
Sister see, sister do
She's got a safe bet
She's got you playing Russian Roulette
She's got a safe bet
She's got you playing Russian Roulette
