Pet Shop Boys - The resurrectionist - lyrics

Pet Shop Boys released I'm with Stupid yesterday.

It's fabulous.

Want to know the best thing about it?

The resurrectionist.

It's one of the additional tracks.

I love single sentence paragraphs.

I just wanted you to know that.

One problem: Pet Shop Boys haven't put the lyrics of The resurrectionist up on their official site yet. Can anyone help me out here? I'll replace the words I can't understand with asterisks.

The resurrectionist

Crossing Blackrfiar's bridge
To Guys
Then back to Bart's
For a better prize
Our goods are dear
But they're never shoddy
Tell me anybody
Need a body

From the resurrectionist?
Medical scientist

We've all got to earn ourselves a living
All it takes is a little bit of digging
By a resurrectionist

I met a man down
**** Lane
He told me he was
In the same game
We both talked the same
Body language
On Newgate Street
We saw the hanging

Of a resurrectionist
Medical scientist

We've all got to earn ourselves a living
All it takes is a little bit of digging
By a resurrectionist

Got a nice thing for the **** hunter
Used to be a **** hunter

We had a drink
Then a couple more
At the King of Denmark
And the Fortune Of War
A handsome lad
Lay in a handsome cab
Soon to be a stiff
And on the slab

From the resurrectionist
Medical scientist

We've all got to earn ourselves a living
All it takes is a little bit of digging
By a resurrectionist

We don't bring them back to life
But we do bring them back from the dead

---

Is he actually singing:

Got a nice thing for the right hunter
Used to be a pogo hunter

???

XWiz thinks he's singing:

Got a nice thing for the right punter

But...

...we're still to work out the next line!

Help!

The lyrics posted as in the PSB Community Forum (http://www.petshopboys-forum.com):

Crossing Blackfriars Bridge to Guy's
Then back to Bart's for a better prize
Our goods are dear but they're never shoddy
Tell me anybody need a body

From a Resurrectionist
Medical scientist

We've all got to earn ourselves a living
All it takes is a little bit of digging
By a Resurrectionist

I met a man down Thieving Lane
He told me he was in the same game
We both talked the same body language
On New Gate Street we saw the hanging

Of a Resurrectionist
Medical scientist

We've all got to earn ourselves a living
All it takes is a little bit of digging
By a Resurrectionist

Got a nice thing for the right punter
Used to be a fogle hunter

We had a drink, then a couple of more
With the King of Denmark
And the Fortune of War

A handsome lad lay in a Hansom cab
Soon to be stiff
And on a slab

From the Resurrectionist
Medical scientist
From a Resurrectionist
Medical scientist

We've all got to earn ourselves a living
All it takes is a little bit of digging
By a Resurrectionist
Medical scientist

We don't bring them back to life
But we do bring them back from the dead
