To the Tune of Dedicated Follower of Fashion, by The Kinks

You'll see him here, you'll see him there,
A knowing grin, and cheek to spare.
He will sell you anything, but buyer please beware
This man's a dedicated follower of commerce.

And when he does his little rounds,
'Round the hot spots of Morpork Town,
Eagerly purveying all the latest fads and trends,
You'll see a dedicated follower of commerce

C.M.O.T. (C.M.O.T.), C.M.O.T. (C.M.O.T.).
He thinks that there's a fortune in his future,
And when he scents a scam ahead it really makes his night,
He's such a dedicated follower of commerce.

C.M.O.T. (C.M.O.T.), C.M.O.T. (C.M.O.T.).
He's always quick to pick up on a novelty
One week it's the music biz, the next week he's in clicks.
'Cause he's a dedicated follower of commerce.

They seek him here, they seek him there,
In Dagon Street and Sator Square.
Everywhere the customers are out to get his guts,
Each one a victim of the follower of commerce.

C.M.O.T. (C.M.O.T.), C.M.O.T. (C.M.O.T.).
His world is built 'round transactions and profit.
This fortune-seeking entrepreneur always seems to lose
But he's a dedicated follower of commerce.

C.M.O.T. (C.M.O.T.), C.M.O.T. (C.M.O.T.).
He flits from this to that just like a butterfly.
If he can see a dollar, then he's off just like a shot
'Cause he's a dedicated follower of commerce.
He's a dedicated follower of commerce
He's a dedicated follower of commerce
