Sex Kills Lyrics

by Joni Mitchell

I pulled up behind a Cadillac
We were waiting for the light
I took a look at his license plate
It said, "Just Ice"

Is justice, just ice
Governed by greed and lust?
Just the strong doing what they can
And the weak suffering what they must

Oh and the gas leaks and the oil spills
And sex sells everything
Sex kills, oh sex kills

Doctors' pills give you brand new ills
And the bills bury you like an avalanche
And lawyers haven't been this popular
Since Robespierre slaughtered half of France

And Indian chiefs with their old beliefs
Know the balance is undone, crazy ions
You can feel it out in traffic
Everyone hates everyone

And the gas leaks and the oil spills
And sex sells everything
Sex kills, oh sex kills

All these jack offs at the office
The rapist in the pool
Oh and the tragedies in the nurseries
Little kids packin' guns to school

The ulcerated ozone
These tumors of the skin
This hostile sun beating down on
This massive mess we're in

And the gas leaks and the oil spills
And sex sells everything
Sex kills, sex kills
Sex kills, oh sex kills
Sex kills
