Love is just a commodity
With the broker saying “Hold me, hold me.”
Oh baby if you don’t like to speculate,
Well, you wouldn’t leave your own front door.

You can think of me as a modern matchmaker
Helping people far and wide
But tell me why should it be that only we Get to have ourselves a Russian bride.

Come for the weekend
Hand-pick your angels
Who in America
You know would never even look at you
Oh desperation
Is so enriching,
Compared to loneliness
What’s a thousand dollars or two?

Over candlelight and wine
She will purr and sigh
Like a model in a magazine
And when you take her home to suburbia
You’ll be living every schoolboy’s dream

And when she leaves you
Don’t ask for refunds
Please understand
A man like you could never make her stay
Romance and women
No guarantees here
Back in America
It’s just a different price that you pay
