Album version:

   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah, what do you think to that?
   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah, what do you think to that?

   He was begging on his bended knee
   For me to put him from his misery
   He hadn't worked at all this century
   Said I'd do a job for all humanity

   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah, what do you think to that?
   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah, what do you think to that?

   I put a bullet in his sugar head
   He thanked me kindly
   then he lay down dead
   Phoney roses blossomed where he bled
   Then all the cheering angels shook my
   hand and said

   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah, what do you think to that?
   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah, what do you think to that?
   Oh It's the middle of the song
   I'm guilty
   And then I turned and said

   There'll be no more pain
   from broken hearts
   And no more lovers to be torn apart
   Before you throw me
   in your dungeon dark
   Your honour, they'll be putting statues up
   In every park

   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah, what do you think to that?
   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah, what do you think to that?

   So dear public I'm here to confess
   That I'm the one who freed us from this mess
   Love won't be calling at your address
   'Cause what you've never had you'll never miss,
   I guess

   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah, what do you think to that?
   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah, what do you think to that?

   If you never, ever use it
   You know you're gonna lose it
   If you never, ever kiss it
   How you ever gonna miss it?


Demo version:

   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah! What do you think to that?
   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah! What do you think to that?

   He was begging on his bended knee
   For me to put him from his misery
   He hadn't worked at all this century
   Said 'I do a service for humanity'

   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah! What do you think to that?
   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah! What do you think to that?

   Put a bullet in his sugar head
   He thanked me kindly, then he lay down dead
   Thorny roses blossomed where he bled
   And all the cheering angels shook my hand and said...
 
   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah! What do you think to that?
   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah! What do you think to that?

   Oh! Yeah!
   Oh! Yeah!
   Oh! Yeah!
   Oh! Yeah!
   What do you think?

   There'll be more pain from broken hearts
   No more lovers to be torn apart
   So don't throw me in your dungeon dark
   You're unappealing, putting statues up in every park

   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah! What do you think to that?
   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah! What do you think to that?

   So dear public, I'm here to confess
   I'm the one who freed us from this mess
   Love won't be calling at your address
   But what you've never had you'll never miss, I guess

   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah! What do you think to that?
   I'm the man who murdered love
   Yeah! What do you think to that?

   What do you think to that? Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
   What do you think to that? Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
   What do you think to that? Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
   [song begins to fade out at this point, however, an undeterred Andy continues
   to yell on...]
   What do you think to that? Yeah! Yeah!
   What do you think to that? Yeah! Yeah!
   What do you think to that? Yeah, I'm the man...
