Count It Up Lyrics

If you've ever owned a car
Or you rent a car
Or you have a company car
Then count that up
Add it to the ever-growing list of things you can't claim all the credit for
If your mother had a job
And your dad had a job
When you were growing up then count that up
'Cause pounds and pennies aren't the only kind of capital

If you've ever visited another country and waltzed through passport control
Then count that up
Put one more stamp in the book you'd like to call I Own My Own Genius
(Count it up)
If you get to choose the clothes you wear and how you cut your hair
Then count that up
(Count it up)
And you can utilise your democratic power for the good of somebody else

Then try to
Count
Count
Count
Count it up

I'm quite an old-fashioned fellow
I am not averse to owning up
Can't we give each other
The tiniest benefit of the doubt? If you can go through day to day without the fear of violence
Count that up
(Count it up)
If people don't stare at you on the street because of the colour of your skin
Count that up
(Count it up)
If your body makes some kind of sense to you
Count that up
(Count it up)
And use the breath you have left to say something that matters

Then try to
Count it up

If you can turn on the tap
And your kids can drink the water
Count that up
(Count it up)
If you've ever had the luxury of turning down a job
Count that up
(Count it up)
If you had books and newspapers in your house when you were a kid
Count that up
(Count it up)
Don't forget
Don't forget
Don't forget to count it up
(Count it up)
